I come by it honestly

My grandfather (deceased since 1987) was apparently a hobby painter and scrapbooker. Not scrapbooking in the sense that we understand it, but putting pictures in albums, drawing beautiful cover pages (like the one on the left), and labelling the pictures in his very nice handwriting.

At first I thought that my grandmother was the person responsible, but it seemed strange that most of the pictures that made it into albums are not in fact labelled. I realized why when my grandmother told me that she wasn't the person responsible. The labelled pictures stop right around the time my grandfather died. I thought it was really funny that so many things are somehow inherited.
