I never take much when I go on a trip, but I pack a folding nylon duffle bag.

I always manage to bring home twice as much stuff as I take!

One small suitcase for me and a carry-on with my meds. Anywhere I have gone, there has always been a washing machine available. Either at my host's home or Laundromat. I bring enough changes for three days with extra undies. My bottoms are tights that I can get two days wear out of. Two nightgowns, one housecoat or bathrobe. The majority of my clothing is wrinkle free cotton. I have found that most of my hosts don't even own an iron. (I'd be lost without mine.) I have often thought a nice gift to bring with me for them would be an iron.

I pack for the Apocalypse, every time. Who knows but where we are going doesn't have TP and shampoo.

You should have run out and sat in the car, and had someone snap a picture. Ever hear when there's an accident involving a bus, a bunch of people get on the wrecked bus so they can file a claim.

Here we go again. The temp is 12ºF. and the furnace is constantly running on high.

Remember that patience I was looking for? Well there must be a leak somewhere. The Pirate has a waste basket right next to him. Looks like I am going to have to teach him how to use it. Just how long does this flu last?

Zero degrees F. today, and colder than that for the last two weeks, actually, most of December. Wind chill today is supposed to get to -50. I don't mind the cold, but it's a little too cold, even for me. I'm sure glad I repaired my furnace last year. My minor complaint, it's too cold and food prices are too high.

Back when a Honda was a small car my husband and I left for a camping trip in the Mojave for a week after dropping our daughter off at grandparents in L.A. He could show sardines how to pack!

We had all our camping gear, food, clothes and a fully grown Afghan Hound and her food in that Honda, with no trailer or anything loaded on the top!

That guy could PACK!

We do OK at packing too Carol. When the kids were young (pre-school and early grades) we camped a lot. Tent camped. With cooking gear and all. From a VW Golf! Camped like that for quite a few years, then ended up buying a Plymouth (un)Reliant station wagon...and stopped camping!

Used that car for a number of trips from the Cleveland OH area to Cape Coral FL too. Had to stop on the yet-unfinished WV portion of I-77 to...change a diaper on the rear deck. Um, we were headed to Himself's folks to spend Thanksgiving with them. Mighty breezy in the car!

CG's "Mighty breezy in the car!" reminded me of my first car. It was a 1972 Chevy Nomad, a station wagon. I bought it for $200 in 1979. It was rusty. It was breezy all the time in that car. It was so rusty that I occasionally got hit by a salt pellet, inside the car, when driving it in winter.

Saw a picture of International Falls on the news. Just a trickle getting through all that ice. Beautiful picture, but somewhere I have no desire to be.

I also have a place I don't want to be this afternoon. At the surgeon's office for a consultation. It is for my gall bladder and possible surgery. Because of my heart, hopefully he will be reluctant to do the surgery.
