I recently went to visit my son, who lives in a lovely town just outside
. It was a delight to spend time with my son and his girlfriend but I have several observations from that trip. Dallas
I am not a world traveler (although I’ve been all over the world between the pages of books). I don’t go very many places but I am learning. So I took my big purse (all the better to accumulate those little bags of roasted peanuts and a bottle of Diet Coke), a fully loaded/fully charged Kindle in said big purse, and several paperback books I thought my son’s girlfriend would like that I stuffed into my small carryon. Oh, and let’s not forget the ziplock bag of frozen homemade spaghetti sauce with meatballs and sausage that was placed in a lunch-pail type insulated bag along with several containers of blue ice so it would remain frozen until I arrived. This was placed in my carryon under the pile of previously mentioned paperback books.
