These clever greeting cards were a gift from my crafty daughter Bonnie who gave me these four cards for Father's Day last month. The problem, of course, is that they are really too personal and classy to part with. (I especially like the "muted horn" card.) But since Bonnie provides specific directions at her craft blog on how to make my own stationery, I could make more.
My older daughter also gave me a book related present for Father's Day– the gift of subterfuge. Before leaving Harvard University for studies in Germany, she placed (“donated”) a copy of my book The Book Shopper: A Life in Review in the Fansworth Reading Room at the Harvard Library. (Enlarge to see the photographic proof.)
But there's more. Denise, my longtime pardner and sometime editor gave me two books as part of the festivities: Eats Shoots & Leaves by Lynn Truss and Just My Type by Simon Garfield. In future blog entries, expect better use of commas, semicolons and the Comic Sans font.
