Talk to the Hands

Will I sound like a philistine if I say that this art is just a wee bit creepy?

Suitcase Emergency

While putting his suitcase in the van for the trip to the airport, the metal connector piece broke on the handle.

I told Andrew to drive, and I ran back in the house and grabbed my supplies. As we drove to the airport I repaired the handle with nylon rope, and sealed the tie with a match flame so it wouldn't come untied.

It looks pretty oafy, but I hope it will make it to Addis Ababa.
