“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Hey ... you're wearing my wife's dress!
Monday, April 26, 2010

So I brought up a truckload of stuff from Fort Myers, to our condo in Nashville, and I alone unloaded and schlepped all the furniture and large items from the loading dock, up to our sky lodge on the 29th floor. Got everything moved and in place and was very pleased with myself when my wife asked me, "Where's my big suitcase with all my suits and shoes? Didn't you bring it?"

I'd brought it ... and I could not remember bringing it up stairs. I'd left it on the loading dock. The night-time manager said they'd found an empty suitcase, filled with trash, and that one of the custodians took it home.

I asked him if that was the way they usually handled situations like this: "Do you always let your employees take things home that they find in the building?" He didn't know how to respond to this. Today I'm going to the manager and calling the police to file a report because, based on our estimate, there was about $4,000 worth of clothes in that suitcase.


Yeah, you've already probably guessed what we did all day yesterday: WENT SHOPPING TO REPLACE THINGS! It's amazing how many things were in that suitcase and now need replaced.

With Mother's Day around the corner, I'm expecting Carol to say, "You know that diamond necklace and matching earrings from the stolen suitcase? Well ..."

If anyone sees some very nicely dressed homeless people walking around downtown Nashville, please call me.

Ooooo, noooooooo!!!!! How perfectly awful! For you, of course. And for Carol too. If you guys think it's fun replacing things you bought because you liked and needed them in the first place . . . and then discover you need to start all over again? Takes all the fun out of shopping! Trust me on this.

I am thinking that Carol, if she has the time for shopping, will be able to make lemonade out of these lemons! What a problem to have if one is as stylish as she is.
