This and That

Farewell, Old Friend:

I bought this suitcase in Ireland circa April 2009, after Delta destroyed my original bag on our trip to Dublin. It's held up amazingly well for 7 years - and I've never seen its twin in all our travels - but the seams are starting to fray and, sadly, it's time to say adieu. I'll miss you, buddy.

She also made this one -

Yep, that's my awesome little Monkey!
