"Like Joe V. Reed, Francis LeB. is another guy whose wife does needlepoint too. They come home at the end of the day and relax with a cocktail and a little stitching. Maybe there's something to this--a marriage where the partners who needlepoint together will stay together?"
This one reminds me of something I was trying to explain to a completely uncomprehending Parish the other night; which was, as His Bobness writes in his stunning recent book:
"Sometimes you say things in blogs* even if there's a small chance of them being true."
(*Actually, the Bobstar says "songs", but same diff.)

"A hunter might really like to hang a picture of his favorite dog in his den or office. It could even be mounted as a pillow if you wish"

I have a picture of my dog in my den Miss, but pillows?

I have a picture (or three), but no. No pillows.
(No Den either)
Anyway my needlepointing would probably be naif at best, and possibly very Abstract.
Such a pillow would be destined to be found in an Op shop many years later and posted on a Blog.
