Description:

Before my dad passed, he wrote my sister and I notes filled with fatherly advice. One of the things he wrote about was reading books and having ideas.

Before my dad passed, he wrote my sister and I notes filled with fatherly advice. One of the things he wrote about was reading books and having ideas. "Don't place too high a value on things. It's the ideas that are important. You can't eat them, or live in them, or drive around in them, but a life replete with things and devoid of IDEAS is a worthless life. Where do you get ideas? Read books!!" He was an English teacher, and so we grew up with a house with lots of bookcases filled to the brim with books upon books. :)

pennycandy says: That folder is awesome, Greta! It's as if the fabric was made specifically for it. Does she sell them? BTW, whenever I type your name it always comes out as GREAT, so I have to go back and fix it. Shouldn't really be considered a typo! Maybe from now on I won't fix it... ;-)
