My Suitcase.

This past weekend I went to visit with my mother in Rochester. When I returned I couldn't help but find the items in my suitcase kind of comical and strange. I went through some of my old boxes that I had of stuff that I collected in high school. Junkified. There were four or five boxes I went through four and consolidated them into one. Some of the things I brought home with me. So they ended up in my suitcase.

April 16, 1949 issue of Collier's Magazine. A friend gave this to me a very long time ago, it survived the flood in my mom's basement and all. I had to keep it. I'm going to make copies from it to use for postcards. The cover has a title for one of the articles inside: "101 Answers To Cancer" , yikes.

Charter Club wool sweater from my mother, it was too small for her.

A bottle of Big House Red wine, 1/4 gone.

Two decks of playing cards with horses on them. I can't recall if these were a gift to me in high school or Milwaukee. I've always had fun making fun of girls who LOVE horses.

I bought so many pin the tail on the donkey sets in high school. You never know when you're going to need one.

A childrens book which I will also make copies of and use for postcards.

A 1989 Toyota Corolla car manual. When I crashed this car in the alley way of the Franklin Building near the Mayo Clinic. I called a few friends who came and dug everything out of my car even some of the seat belts. I had it all in a bag for a while but threw it all out except for the manual.

An old mix cd Rodney had made for me in high school. CD: not found. I plan on maybe trying to download the songs. at some point.

A gold bow pin I actually bought two weekends ago in Wabasha at the Flea Market. I love it.

Hallow's Eve and Election

For Halloween Lauren, Robyn, Donnovin, and I went to the Club Jager/Le'toile event.
Lauren dressed up as an adorable flapper girl, Robyn was Ms. Fast (elementary school art teacher), Donnovin went as a stop light, and I in last years costume race horse jockey who's horses name is "Daddy's little secret". Here's the photo of us looking like were in a band that can't get along, kinda like Oasis with out the brothers. To see other photos from the event click here.

I'm sure there are a lot of postings out there about Obama's victory so, I'll make this short so you can catch up on the more important readings. I am very excited about the election results and am happy I am able to experience a legendary moment in history. I and can't wait to see the progress that follows. Pretty big deal.
