    I liked your bookbag post.

    Mine is just some old cheap thing I bought many years ago. Strangely though, it is still in one piece. I use it to keep tools in. Strangely it still smells like Watchtowers and Awake!s.

    Funny you should bring this subject up. I was just down in my basement over the weekend and came across xjw's book bag. I looked at it and shuddered.

    I believe it was a gift I gave to him as an anniversary present. don't people usually give romantic things to their spouses. Yuck what was I thinking so many years ago.

    Anyway that wasn't the only present he got that time, there were others, we always showered each other with gifts on our anniversarys as that was the only thing we could celebrate and give gifts.

    Mine was the prettiest!

    In the early 70's, I had an orange paisley little suitcase I called my bookbag. It was unique. I still have it all these years later. My kids use as storage for toys.

    Having pioneered for so many years, I know how valuable a bookbag was. It was a status symbol. The real cool bookbags were the nice leather ones with the shoulder straps. When you went to a door you looked like an executive.

    I still have my ministry bag too. I got from a witness who custom built a range of bags. Come to the think, he lived in or about North West England, not far from our Simon - I wonder if he knows of the enterprise?

    It was very neat black leather, made to fit the WT size paper rather than standard A4. On the side there is an attached flap with a clip for your S8's . That drew many envious comments!

    I see from sf's post that the spirit of commerce is still alive and well in the ranks of the faithful.
