When we travel, along with our suitcase and travel bag, we also carry a picnic basket. Why a picnic basket? We were asked this question as recently as our last trip.

 Like the tool kit we have in our car for minor vehicle repairs, we also carry a first aid kit in case of minor cuts, scrapes, abrasions, bumps and bruises. We actually found the bright red case with Emergency written in large print on the top side, for under a dollar at a garage sale.  We since have updated the...
