I just need to figure out a way to tell the wife

Ok, it's a lame title, but I couldn't think of a better one. Recently (someone might remember) I purchased a day bag for the Guard - but I have found it to be inadequate. So, I went ahead and purchased another (pictured right). Not in ACU colors since I am going to be retiring here shortly. Instead I ordered it in black. The reason I need to figure out how to tell my beloved is that I still need to sell the old one. Well, not just the old one, but a Large G.I style Rucksack, and a black Helmet bag, (I like bags.) so if you're in the market for a couple of pretty durable bags comment here and I will see what I can do about getting one of them your way (assuming we can work out the details).

I don't know what it is. I like bags that I can organize things and sort of "live out of". I also have a things for watches. Not necessarily any clock, but watches specifically. Well, I really like Grandfather-style clocks too...

Lately I've been in the mood to listen to some folk music, preferably Irish or English. Something along the lines of Steeleye Span. Although the lyrics can be... well, a tad more 'mature' than I usually care for, I really like a good 'jig' or instrumental. The mixture of flutes, violins, etc. is really stirring. I have an old CD from when I visited Kevin Barry's down in Savannah back in 2000, but I've been itching to go listen to some live music lately. I dun know wha I'm, gunna do 'bout it neither!
Verse for today:
Psalm 68:19-20, ESV
Blessed be the Lord,
who daily bears us up;
God is our salvation. Selah
Our God is a God of salvation,
and to God, the Lord, belong deliverances from death.

Glory be! A man who loves bags! Now you know how we women feel about bags (purses, totes, etc.) and shoes. Imagine if you were also hung up on shoes! I guess watches kind of takes the place of shoes. Good luck finding a taker.

Who knows? I may be in the "market" for them. I'll ask DS 4---he leaves the 28th of April.

And LInda's comment just cracked me up! I mean put Vera Bradley on the side and we're all over it!!!!
