This is one of my favorite fabric pictures, which I posted when I first started my blog.
It depicts my dad, my mom and me, watching one of their favorite
game shows in the playroom of the home in which they lived for more than 50 years.
I had come to visit from New York, where I then lived with my family,
and, after supper we would go downstairs to watch
"Wheel of Fortune" and "The Match Game".
My dad, in his black recliner, always had his finger poised over the 'mute' button on
the remote control (because he hated listening to the commercials)
and wore his headphones to be better able to hear the sound of the program.
It was just one of those familiar, unremarkable rituals
which we shared.
My parents are gone now, but I love having
this sweet little memory in the form of a picture.
It always makes me smile.
