  • When in Rome...

    In the summer of 1968 Angela Milton finally fulfilled her lifelong dream of traveling to Rome, Italy. She had just graduated from Nebraska State with a degree in Art History and wanted to visit the cathedrals and museums of the ancient city to soak in the art and culture and maybe experience a little Italian romance. For graduation her brother had given her an avocado greenluggage set. As she watched the skycap load the suitcases onto a cart, her mind drifted away to the streets of Rome where she pictured herself, arms wrapped around a dark, handsome Italian boy on the back of a Vespa, zipping between honking cars on their way to view the next historical artistic piece.

    When Angela arrived in Rome, she found herself sharing a taxi with Matthew Mudhide. Matthew was a balding and somewhat stout twenty-four-year old from Lacrosse, Wisconsin. He too had just graduated from college, his degree in Architecture and like Angela, had always dreamed of going to Rome, his quest to see the great architectural buildings. His set of matching brown luggage looked rather nice next to Angela’s suitcases in the trunk of the cab.

    To make a long story short, Angela and Matthew ended up touring Rome together though not on a Vespa but rather in a very cramped little Fiat. The two ended up falling in love and returning to the States where they married and merged their luggage sets. Ironically they ended up settling down in Rome, Georgia where they reside to this day.
