Good Morning, World!

Maman came home this weekend after a few days away. It was great seeing her and her luggage. For those of you who don't know, Schubert cats have a thing for luggage. We tend to attack it. Abuse it. Like the Samsonite Gorilla.
For this reason, we are sometimes confused with the Lowland Gorilla.

What's interesting, though, is that while the Samsonite Gorilla is iconic, the ad campaign upon which the association is based was actually not for Samsonite, but rather American Tourister. Check it out:

Samsonite bought American Tourister in 1993. I guess that's where the confusion comes from. Go figure.

Samsonite Gorilla just sounds better, though.

Anyway, long story short, I'm glad to have Maman home.
