“Big...see...I, I don't want one for one night. I want something for a thousand and one nights. With plenty of room here for labels from Italy and Baghdad, Samarkand...a great big one.”
“I see, a flying carpet, huh?”
“I don't suppose you'd like this old second-hand job, would you?”
“Now you're talking…Gee whiz, I could use that as a raft in case the boat sunk. How much does this cost?
“That's my trick ear, Joe. It sounded as if you said ‘no charge’.”
“Well, what's my name doing on it here?”
“A little present from old man Gower. Came down and picked it out himself.”

When I heard the theme for Thursday was to be "Suitcase" this scene from the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" was the first thing I thought of. George Bailey who thought that the most exciting sounds in the world were anchor chains, plane motors, and train whistles, never experienced travel; he stayed in Bedford Falls all his (wonderful) life.
One of my post labels is "The Suitcase". Click on the label "The Suitcase" below and you can see articles I've written on places I've been or places I long to go.
Please check out Theme Thursday for other participants contributions.
