I saw an older couple laying in the grass at an outdoor concert concert making out. It was tasteful, but weird for me because kids were jumping all over them and they weren't coming up for air. It all seemed quite innocent, however passersby took long stares too. I guess we expect it from teens but not the older generation. On one hand I was happy for them thinking 'cool, a happy couple not afraid of PDA.' Then I wondered if they were married, and for how long. Was this a lifelong love that they embrace everywhere? Then I started to look for Wedding rings. Yes, they both had rings. I saw his as he stroked her hair. They finally came up for air when the concert started and they were completely surrounded by the kids who were jumping over them. I smiled and wondered if that happens on the lawn of an amphitheater, what happens at home!

How does she avoid a luggage-related injury? The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons offers the following tips for lifting and carrying luggage to avoid injury to the neck, back, and shoulders:
- Look for a sturdy, light, high-quality, and trans- portable pieces when shopping for luggage. Choose luggage with wheels and a handle. Avoid purchasing luggage that is too heavy or bulky when empty.
- Use smart packing techniques and pack lightly. When possible, place items in a few smaller bags instead of one large luggage piece.
- To lift luggage, stand along side of it and bend at the knees. Do not bend at the waist. Lift the luggage with your leg muscles. Grasp the handle and straighten up. Once you lift the luggage, hold it close to your body.
- Do not twist when lifting and carrying luggage. Point your toes in the direction you are headed and turn your entire body in that direction.
- Do not rush when lifting or carrying a suitcase. If it is too cumbersome, get help.
- Do not carry bulky luggage for long periods of time. Make sure to check heavier items when traveling.
