Personalize it

This item appears on page 67 of the November 2008 issue.

After watching my black Samsonite bag go around for the third time, because my bright green plastic name tag had come off of it, I decided to take some liquid acrylic paint and a small paintbrush and put a distinctive design back and front.

When that bag wore out, I bought a purple bag because I thought it would stand out and decided to decorate that one also. I was glad I did, because one time at Oregon’s Bend-Redmond airport another purple bag showed up on the baggage belt!

In over 15 years of checking my bag, it has always appeared.
