Another Letter Bag For This Bag Lady

I am such a bag lady. I have a new mail bag, so why not a new letter writing bag. Oh, but I do love baggage. Erykah Badu's "Bag Lady" lyrics could be tweaked to be my signature song, if I had one. "Bag lady, you gone hurt your back dragging all them bags like that." I won't hurt my back though . . . Not with this baggage.

It's not heavy, yet it holds a lot. There's room for stacks of letters, my embellishment kit nee Chicago lunch box, pens, cartridges, stationery, postage . . . You name it. And it rides well on the front seat. Heck, it's almost better than my regular bag.

The lining is worth examining. Wish it were waterproof. The one drawback? The top keeps falling on my hand. It won't stay open, so I'll have to fiddle with it. It hasn't stopped me from writing some overdue letters. I confess. Over the holidays, I fell into the habit of being lazy. It's a hard habit to break, but there will be no more catch-up marathons for me. If I kept it up I'd have to start smoking marijuana or something, to mellow me out. I was always a day late and $5 short when it came to things like being a hippy, tuning out and turning on, and my bras were so small they would have made fantastic fire starters--bonfires, they never would make. So, now I wonder if I would have made a good pot head? Would pot make me a better letter writer? A number one storyteller? Wow. Is there such a thing as marijuana tea? You reckon I watch too many documentaries about the wonder years? I wonder.

. . . to be continued.

P.S. And why is okay to get inebriated but not stone? (Singing, "Let's go get stoned!") Alcohol is deadlier than pot. Right? Right!


  1. Awesome bag! love the design on it, did you do it yourself or did it come like that? lovely lovely style!

  2. I almost didn't get it but it was on sale--practically a steal--so I had to. Know what I mean? :) No, I wish I had though. Wouldn't it be fun to embellish one? I'd tart it up something grand, if I had a blank one. Glad you like it, too.

  3. I love that term tart it up LOL !!!!

  4. I love the bag! You lucky lady. Why can't I stumble upon something so lovely --- and on sale?! Enjoy it, my friend.
    I hope this finds you doing wonderfully well.
