When I saw this tote bag in the gift shop at Monticello I thought it would be perfect for my husband. He agreed. But then it sat around unused for well over a year so I politely asked if I would use it on a trip once. It has been mine ever since. In Scotland one day I had a couple of women ask me to reposition the bag so they could read the complete quote. They just had to know what it was that could not lived without.
