Dogwoods growing well
He emptied out 33 cases and bags, I kid you not. How did this happen? Well, Alan did still have the cabin trunk he used when he was in the Merchant Navy before we were married! Added to that, with all the travelling that we have done in the past, we always seemed to need different kinds of bags for different kinds of travel. So many things to take into account. Airplanes, other people's cars, other people's homes, train journeys, size and weight, time of year, which country? To hang or not to hang? Posh hotel or a caravan. Also there were times when we bought new bags having forgotten just what we had in the loft. Then there were the impulse buys and not forgetting the extra bags bought to bring extra goodies home from the States.
Well, no more. Alan is at this moment delivering most of them to the council tip. Some are distined for the charity shop. One very good and almost new American Tourister, along with a brand new case that was a replacement from British Airways for one that they damaged, will be making their way to E-Bay as soon as I have the time. I think 9 have gone back into the loft for our use. I'm sure that my children will be glad when the time comes for them to clear the house when we are gone. Looking at the entrace to our loft you can see why we do not go up there too often.
