I dedicate this book to my mother, who is the genius behind The Gunny Sack. She used it until we were in high school (seriously). To this day I can still hear my mother's high-pitched threats, "I am bringing out The Gunny Sack!" as my four siblings and I sprinted in separate directions in a pathetic attempt to salvage any shred of personal property before its incarceration in The Gunny Sack. LOVE YOU MOM!
