Every time you mention one of your silly cars, it appears to be a different kind.
Exactly how many do you have?

Yes what Shula said?
J went through a brief frenzied period of collecting airline bags - not airline tour bags but airline bags - Iraqi Air , British Airways , all manner of North American bags. There were reasons connected to his work for the frenzy but madness it was .
He seems to have recovered well.

Delurking to ask whether you did, or did not, get that luggage set? It is vaguely implied that it is an as yet undiscovered expenditure!

I was SO sure it was going to be a Shag lunch-box. And that the Solomon decision was going to be based on which of your fine sons received which of the million dollar lunch-boxes to school each day. Ah me.
Meanwhile, after one foray on behalf of my littlest boy, from which I emerged less than $20 poorer, I have managed to resist the lures of ebay.

Also, I'm assuming your lunch-box lunacy was accepted by TFBYM on grounds of near-death experience - should you ever need justification for the Schedoni luggage.

I never have more than 3 silly cars. There is a measure of rotation to this limit so that the 3 silly cars I had in, say, 2005 are not the same 3 silly cars I have today.
I have never seen that set of luggage again. I fear the mere mention of the price would make my spleen hemorrhage.

Hasn't your biggest score been the espresso machine; which, I seem to recall, was also misspelled?

If it wasn't, it's in the top 3 steals.
It certainly has been more than amortized by now. (Let's see, $300...at 4 shots -- conservatively estimated -- per day for the last, what? Two years? That's 20 cents per espresso not including coffee beans. Not too shabby.)
