What to take to college?

July 1, 2014



Over the next few weeks, I’ll be getting my big guy ready to leave for college. My Mother contributed the manly camouflaged pin cushion above. She included basic threads, buttons and scissors. I would tell you how adorable I think it is, but that would defeat the purpose of it being manly and rugged.

Ralph can sew!

As a party activity for my son’s fourth grade class, I taught the students how to hand-stitch bean bags. The boys weren’t enthusiastic at first, but I asked them how many of them had ever heard of Ralph Lauren. They all raised their hands, and I told them Ralph Lauren knew everything about fabric and sewing, and he was a MILLIONAIRE!  They all got busy sewing away, and a week later, one of the Moms let me know her son sewed the button back on his pants without any help from her!


Bluto probably could not sew.

So, what else should we send with big guy to college? He has a good tool set, but I can’t think of anything else.

I took a roll of quarters for the phone.

Suggestions on what to take to college?
