Purses, Handbags and More Purses
Purses and Handbags Lost Without Them
Purse- noun; definition - a small bag or pouch for carrying money - yeah right and everything else a woman may feels she needs. Cell phones, wallets, makeup bags, lotion, sunglasses, keys, handkerchief, tissues, gum and that's just me, other women carry blackberry's, Ipods, cigarettes in cases and God only knows what else.
Other items can also be found under the term "purse" - tote bags, handbags, pocketbooks, clutch bags, hobo bags in an array of of sizes and colors. I have some acquaintances, much younger than I, who are able to get along with just a clutch bag. This boggles my mind, but to each his own, I think it ticks me off that I'm unable to downsize my luggage.
Days of Yore
Gone are the days of just carrying a purse. As I've aged I now seem to need almost a carrier full of luggage just to make it through the day.
Along with my purse I carry a cloth briefcase, and I use the new supermarket cloth bags to carry my lunch. In the briefcase is my arsenal for my various blogs. Loaded to the brim with papers, notes, tablets, notebook, pens and pencils. For several months now I've been eyeing a book bag at the top of my closet. No way...I'm not carrying anything else nor am I carrying it on my back!

Final Sad Note
The worst is that if any item that I schlep from work to home and back is missing I'm ready to throw a hissy fit. Evidently, I need all this junk.
Women are angels. When we break a wing, we fly on our broom. We are flexible that way!

In winter I'll haul around more compact bags, but in the summer I pull out the big guns, huge monstrosities all summery with flowers or made of straw to load up with even more stuff. Uhumm a portable luggage rack . . .
