every picture tells a story


And this one is about a nun walking very quickly -- almost running -- across the Piazza di san Pietro, carrying something that looked very heavy.

In somewhat related news, the airline still hasn't found my missing luggage, which contained, among other things, a bottle of calvados, a pink scarf, my favorite shoes and (stupid me) the laptop with all my photos.

That Sucks with a big S! I hope they find it all...I lost one many(circa 1985) years ago and still miss the favorite shirt and fuzzy bathrobe to this day:(
On the bright side at least they didn't lose you

Maggie said...

Oh no! That's terrible! Hopefully they find it soon!

Ahuva Batya said...

Noooooo! I hope they turn up soon.

I've had my luggage "misdirected" so many times I expect it now. I'm actually surprised when it ends up where it's supposed to be (ie, with me).

Hope they find it soon!!

To give you some hope, it took 6 weeks once but the airline DID find my luggage. I had gone to Michigan, it had gone on a cruise to Alaska.

slouching mom said...

oh no, your photos...

sigh.

STE said...

Crap. Hope it shows up soon!

Tash said...

I don't play betting games with loaded guns or babies, but I'm willing to bet some serious money here that your luggage returns with scarft, shoes, 50-50 on the booze, and no laptop. Effin' airlines.

Off to trip up that nun and ask where she got her lap top, for pete's sake.

Amy said...

I hope they find your luggage soon. That totally sucks!

My Reality said...

I hope your luggage enjoys the destinations it may visit before it gets back to you. Because it has to come back, I said so. I want to see the pictures.

RUN NUN RUN!

Where is she GOING in such a hurry? And what is in that briefcase?

My Reality: Luckily, I had already posted some pictures to my photosharing sites, but, alas, not all of them.

Tash: You're on.

TEOM: Exactly what inquiring minds want to know.

Which Box said...

oh no! Miserable.

Hmm, I'm kinda with Tash on this one. Stupid airlines.

cinnamon gurl said...

Nooooooooooooo!!!!

LAS said...

OH NO! That's terrible. I was just thinking as I opened this post to read it - I bet she has so many amazing photos - and then to read that your luggage is missing! I really hope they find it!

Betty M said...

Sorry about the luggage. Hoping its just done its own European tour.

Amelie said...

argh! I hope they find your treasured possessions soon!

oh n. how awful. don't beat yourself up too much. i once, in a rush, packed CASH from my mom and a platinum watch in my luggae in a SECOND world country. they never found it. i complained, via letters, and finally got about $1000 in flight coupons and a check.
though, i hope they find it very soon. they've also lost my luggae and returned it two weeks later before.
sheesh! lame!

Amanda said...

Oh wow, I'm sorry. My laptop went down once, and I felt so displaced. I can't imagine it being lost in an airline abyss...

That sucks.

Bon said...

oh noooooes! not the laptop. not the photos. oy.

but the one you've got here? i love it. love her hustle.

Clementine said...

Oh no! I hope your luggage will be home soon.

Christine said...

how awful! hopefully it will turn up soon.

(and beck cracks me up--run nun run!)

Foreverhopeful said...

How awful about your luggage. That must be so frustrating. Hope they find it soon.

LawMommy said...

Oh, stupid, stupid airlines. I hope the luggage turns up...

Elizabeth said...

oh my gosh, that SUCKS - I hope you get it back soon...

Emily said...

Whoops! Another expletive just slipped out. I dedicate that one in your honor.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Julia said...

Did you fly back through that fancy shmancy terminal in London? Boo on them for loosing the luggage.

This picture, as usual, is amazing. Glad you have some uploaded, and am totally hoping the rest come back. I bet you could just not write a word for a month or two and feed us a picture a day instead. If the laptop ever got back, that is...

Amy said...

That bites a big one! I hope it is located and intact (as if, but wishes do come true!)

Becky said...

Oh no! I was SO looking forward to pictures...

Hopefully they will get it back to you soon. Once mine got lost when I was in highschool and I refused to go to school for a week because 'all' of my clothes were in there!

Roxanne said...

BTW, I didn't comment on your "positive" post because by the time I saw it there were already so many comments. So I will say congrats here and good luck.

Oh, no! You checked your laptop!!!
