    What do you do to make your suitcases easy to spot on the conveyers? I noticed last time that ours looked like everyone elses :mad:

    Tie brightly coloured scarves or bandanas (cheap from any market) round the handles. I have in the past jazzed my suitcases up with *artwork* done with different colours of nail varnish as I have hundreds of bottles.

    Well, when eveyone used light coloured or tapestry luggage, I bought black.

    When everyone began using black, I bought colour-blocked luggage.

    When everyone began using colour-blocked luggage, I bought red.

    When everyone began using red, I gave up and returned to black luggage!

    I have turquoise name tags on all of my bags. That helps. I used to have bright pink, but they disappeared one trip--have no idea why. The luggage made it, but the tags didn't! Apparently someone liked them!

    My cousin painted roses on her luggage when she and her husband flew to California for their DD's wedding. It's striking; she's a terrific artist--which helps! One problem: the luggage didn't make the flight! :sigh; Fortunately, they did have a carry-on and the checked bag made arrived the day before the wedding.

    Beyond that, you could add strips of coloured duct or electrical tape to your cases.

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!
