Dead Soldier

TSFB travels just a bit.  Our trusty companion is usually this red suitcase (left corner.)

4.20.2010 203

Trusty as she was, that suitcase was going on about 12 years old and the wear and tear was nearing lethal. When we were in Chicago, we could not pass up a new replacement so we decided to give our old case a burial at sea as it were.


We tucked her away in a quiet corner of our new favorite Chicago hotel


and we boarded our flight without her.


Given the circumstances, I felt it was a fairly dignified, perhaps even poetic, gesture. As you can tell from the photos, it was a tough goodbye for Eddy. Also, that hotel was probably *real* freaked out when they found it.
