I needed that!

We were up early and began packing in earnest!  OMG, thirty-two suitcases for ten days, and I have one small gunny sack!

Did You Know?  A gunny sack, also known as a gunny shoe, burlap sack, hessian sack, or tow sack, is a large sack, traditionally made of burlap (Hessian fabric) formed from jute, hemp, sisal, or other natural fibers, usually in the crude spun form of tow.  Modern-day versions of these sacks are often made from synthetic fabrics such as polypropylene.

We skipped breakfast, and by 1:00 pm, we were famished.  I needed to go to the poster office to give Uncle Sam some additional money, so I used the time to pop by CVS, get a pill box, and then go to In-An-Out for some burgers!

Colleen called us because she got a message to make sure we did our pre-flight check-in.  She checked in for us; we merely provided the passport and Global Entry numbers.

Thank goodness for Robin and Colleen; without them, we would be staying at home.

At 6:00 pm, Irene came over to witness the panic in action.

Orville Wright said to his brother, “Wilbur, you were only in the air for 12 seconds. How could my luggage be in Cleveland?”

Packing Room #1

I use Packing Room #2, commonly known as Robin’s Nest.

The baggage tags are now on!

Perhaps I misspoke; I have two bags.

We planned to hit the sack at 9:00 pm, but at 10:30 pm, we finally closed up the bags and moved them to the front room.  The limo picks us up at 2:45 am.  Irene is already here, and Scout knows something is up!
