A Real Clothes Horse . . .


I'm into the embarrassing photos...

Year, please. Just curious. I'm thinking mid '70s . . . for no particular reason . . , except perhaps the part of the hair, the flip of the bangs, and of course, the belt buckle . . .

After a closer look, I'm now thinking early 70s . . are those musical notes on your shirt pocket? Embroidered, perchance -- or would that be too much to hope for? Just curious.

Oh, yes; those are embroidered musical notes.


You're a bit too observant, y'know . . .

Hey -- you could look at the embroidering as a sign of attention to quality on your part . . . vs., I dunno, silk screen . . .

Unless you were the one who did the embroidering. That would be attention to quality as well as a evidence of a skill we didn't know you had -- one of many, I'm sure --

I'll stop now.

No, the embroidering was done by my sister.

I have a "Lennon-McCartney" shirt -- she embroidered the name of a number of songs, all in the shape of a treble clef...

I do not embroider, although i can sew. I remember once, when I took Lucy and Jaimie with me on a trip down to see Sue in Roanoke. Sue's comforter "sprung a leak," and the stuffing was coming out of a torn cover. I went and got some needle and thread from Sue's cabinet, and started repairing the hole. Apparently, my girls were staring at me as if I'd grown a second head. Sue explained to them that i really could sew, and then said "there are probably a lot of things your dad can do that you don't know about."

I'm glad she wasn't any more forthcoming. . .


I like sewing; i sewed a camera case for Jaimie out of some fabric she picked.

To this day, she and her mother laugh themselves to tears; I sew by hand [no machine], and it shows...


this is more than I wanted to reveal.

A KU-DOES on the camera case, Mister Watson! In truth, a man sewing should be no more surprising than a woman mowing the lawn. If women can mow, then men can sew. (Apologies to Edgar A., I believe he was the one who first said that . . .)

Personally, I find sewing by hand much more satisfying than sewing by machine. Possibly b/c the only thing I ever sewed by machine were placemats (brite yellow w/funky fringe in 1972) for my Girl Scout sewing badge. But think it could also be that hand sewing is literally more, well, 'hands-on', if you will.

Of course there is the difficulty of first getting the thread thru that little teeny tiny eye of the needle now that they make them so much smaller these days . . .
