I was out walking my dog and doing a little sketching when I saw “the bag”. My neighbor was walking down the street with a medium sized black shoulder bag. When I asked him where he got it, he said it was a long time ago and he wasn’t sure. We looked it over for identifying features then I looked for it online. Couldn’t find it. Next time I saw him I told him that I was an artist and the “the bag” would be perfect for carrying sketching gear and that I had published a book on journal drawing. Turns out he is a writer and works in a book store and he looked up my book that evening. The next time I saw him he came running up and gave me the bag in trade for a signed copy of my book. The “bag” has since gone with me to San Francisco, two horse shows and the beach and many walks in the neighborhood. Works great.
