"Gone stitchin' instead of just a wishin"?
My dad was a huge fan of Harold Ensley, The Sportsmans Friend. This started as a local hunting/fishing show in the 60's. Mr. Ensley had a theme song that went:
Gone fishin' instead of just a wishin'.....
I can still hear the music in my head. I lost my father when I was 10, but believe, to this day, he has never missed an episode of this program!
Several months ago at work, as I was leaving for the day, my boss asked if I was going to my "stitching group". "Yup", I replied, "gone stitchin' instead of just a wishin'"...... Now I hum the theme song as I settle into my stichin' spot, smile and think of Daddy and Harold Ensley in that red ford country squire sedan......
Here is a photo of my Dad, my little brother Duane, Dad's dog Suzie and yours truly.... (love the white socks with the black shoes!) circa 1967-68
I hope I'm the "Stitchers Friend"! xoxo Martha~~Marti~~Miokka~~Mom~~Gramma
