They offer pants and shorts right down my alley, softest cotton in great colors. And true to the sales hype, their products did turn out to be "unbelievably comfortable."

This isn’t an infomercial, but I should mention the store, which is "Crazy Shirts." Unless their clothes fall apart in mid-vacation, you can bet I’ll be doing a lot of business with them.

Now, I’ve done more than "augment" my ratty wardrobe. I’d pretty much replaced my whole suitcase. So this year when we do our tourist thing, strangers won’t whisper as we pass by, "Isn’t it nice of that attractive lady to help the homeless?"

The only thing lacking for a successful trip was a few tiny items of big importance. Solved! Yesterday, I bought snacks to take on the plane.

Anytime I go aboard a boat or plane, I immediately get hungry. I’m sure there’s a clinical explanation, but that’s between me and my stomach.

I’d have made a terrible Viking. The crew would’ve thrown me overboard for raiding the food locker before we rowed from the dock.

I would’ve likewise been a poor Wright Brother. Could "The Wright Flyer" have risen off the sand dune with added weight of sandwiches and a batch of cookies? My travel munchies might’ve created a history mystery.
