Growing up, Dad would often take me to the ‘B. Dalton’ bookstore at Jamestown Mall, and to the local library. As an adult, he always had books around. I especially remember all the volumes of the ‘Uncle Johns Bathroom Readers” that he collected. He read historical type books or non-fiction mostly.
[Lots of news lately about the tearing down of Jamestown Mall.]
THIS – this is what I miss the most. I would go to him for advice – and he would encourage these attributes.
But he would always play ‘devils advocate’ if someone was stuck on an idea. EVEN IF HE AGREED with them – he would offer the opposite viewpoint for their consideration. He would’ve been a star in a debate club!! lol
