Memory Cloth — Suit Cases

My high school graduation present was a grown up set of leather luggage. I got it in burgundy and had a burgundy suit. Mom imagined me looking like a Hollywood starlet at the train station when I went to college.

I came back for Thanksgiving
freshman year –a hippie.
My clothes were in brown paper shopping bags.

Mom would not give up so she got me a matched set of Sax Fifth Avenue Christmas shopping bags to go back to school.

I still have the leather luggage!
