I'm not sure the name for the upright suitcases, there is one, but it escapes me at the moment. What I really want to point out is how far we've come. It used to be, not that very long ago that we carried suitcases, then there was the wheels with the strap that pulled them along, but they tended to tip over, then we got the rollaboards....much better, but as they got bigger they tended to really drag on that shoulder and the heavier they were, the more drag....
The uprights, spinners, well, they are brilliant. I can manage two large ones, two large heavy ones myself, well Liz helps at times.
Which all brings me to remembering.......

I'm packed into my new medium size Samsonite upright with 4 wheels, off to Nantucket on vacation!
Will update you all on my trip. First up, Norwood, my growing up town. I'll be showing Mark around, he's never been.
And a warm farewell to my girls, I'll be back soon. Love you all. Susan, you'll be fine, I'll bring you a Boston present.
