It all began on a beautiful October day. Last Friday myself and my two dear friends (AKA the twins) Karen and Sharon were taking a road trip in Karen's truck to East Palestine, OH. That's where my sister lives and we were going to pick up a Hoosier that I was getting from my sister. This was my third attempt to pick up the elusive Hoosier. It takes about an hour to get to Patty's house . We were about 40 minutes into the trip, driving down a perfectly idyllic country road when suddenly the truck began to sputter and jerk then suddenly the engine died. We were able to steer the truck almost completely off the road. We then had to call AAA to have the truck towed all the way home. It took about 45 minutes for the tow truck to get to us, so what do three "hookers" do with all that time - Well check it out - This is me sitting in the truck because I was FREEZING ....... Karen decided she would keep an eye out for the tow truck and ....... Sharon was just going to hitch a ride to Patty's without us..... Finally the truck arrived and so did Patty. Needless to say, the Hoosier is still in Ohio!!!! Oh well, another day.
I learned rug hooking in 1999 and taught my two daughters Lisa and Missy. We Three Rug Hooking was born. I really enjoyed working with my girls. That came to an end on the evening of March 4,2005 when Missy went into premature labor and after an emergency C-section gave birth to little Brady. At 2 lbs 13 oz Brady had a rough time. He spent 4-1/2 months in various hospitals. He underwent 4 surgeries on his little head, struggled with bad lungs, had meningitis and pneumonia. It was a very hard time. Brady's doctors believed he would have developmental problems and lung problems, but our God had different plans for Brady. At age 4 he is a perfect "little" dynamo, as active as any 4-year-old. About that same time Missy found out that her husband, Lane, had a recurrence of his malignant brain tumor. In September of 2008 Lane lost his brave battle and went home to be with the Lord. As for Lisa, she stayed with the business until about 2006 when she divorced and with two daughters had to also get a "real job." She is now happily remarried and working part time. She helps me with my rug binding chores. I also do medical transcription at home part time.
