It's January 1, a little more than one week till I leave Austin for Ft. Lauderdale. The Cunard White Star Luggage Service will pick up a suitcase at my home on Monday
and it is supposed to be in my cabin when I embark on January 13.
It's hard to know what to pack. I need
warm weather clothes for the Southern Hemisphere Summer and cold weather clothes for
Japan in winter. Of course my new tuxedo and its trappings will be needed as will a stack of books. I still can't believe I'm doing this.
