I showed her my Etsy shop on my smartphone. She took it out of my hand when the picture changed in the screen. She apologized that she was not technically inclined. She looked at my shop and pointed at the FRONTIER Wide Brim hat in orange. She discreetly slipped me a $50 bill and asked me to make one in either black or navy. She wore a navy blue dress seated in her wheelchair. Immediately afterwards, my husband and I headed to the Hobby Lobby store. I chose navy blue because it matched her dress.

Ordinarily, Lahoma barely leaves their home. Someone always has to stay at home with her because she might have a stroke at any time. She was recently treated for a stroke once before.

Her husband on Richard has a short and thin frame similar to Audie Murphy. His voice sounds like Bob Barker on the Price Is Right. When he preaches he has an authoritative yet gentle voice. You could never feel intimidated by him. I met his oldest daughter one time at the door because it was her turn to care for the mother while the father attended church.
I made the hat and brought it to her house. I was worried that the hat might not fit. While making the hat, I changed the structure of the from the crochet pattern I wrote. I rearranged it so it would fit her 21 1/2 inch circumference head with a low crown. She eagerly took the hat out of my hands and put it on. It fit perfectly! She noticed the Mobius twist. She looked at it at the twist and noticed she can wear it in many styles. Perhaps she is one of the few who can finally understand the Mobius strip. I've often wondered if people would finally understand the concept of it. Well at least they did.
