The WAHA Sweatshirt Mystery is Solved!
So about six months ago my Physical Therapist at the
Well’s House, Robin tells me about these awesome
sweatshirts. They have mittens attached and there is even
a separate thumb at the end of the arm of the sweatshirt.
As my title indicates they are called WAHA’s. So
Herman and I do a search on the internet. No WAHA to be
found. I asked Robin where she found them and she told
me they were at Johnstown Knit when they were still in
of forgot about them for awhile. Then one day in December
shortly after Christmas the door bell rings. I was in
the back of the house with Terry so she went out front
and answered the door.
woman identified herself as Betty Christman and Terry
quickly brought me up from the back of the house when
Betty asked if I lived here. When I came up front the
first thing I noticed was Betty wearing a nice smile.
The second thing I noticed was that she was carrying two
sweatshirts which she had taken from a bag.
went on to tell me that she read in one of my articles
that I was in search of a sweatshirt with mittens attached.
Further I had asked any readers to contact me if they
knew of any. Well Betty did. Turns out that her son was
the originator of the WAHA sweatshirt. And she got a couple
of them for me from him! Wasn’t that the sweetest
wearing one as I write to you now and I have to tell you
they are incredibly warm. Betty tells me that her son
had moved to Ohio with the business, but is back in the
area and thinking of starting up the sweatshirt company
again. I for one hope he starts his company up again.
I’ll definitely be a regular customer.
does start it up again I seriously hope he considers putting
the sweatshirts online. I think he’d reach a broader
market that way. So thank you Betty Christman . I really
appreciate the time you took to track me down. And I love
the sweatshirts! Even Herman loved them when he arrived
home that day. I’m really pleased people pay attention
to what I say in my articles. So this is a big thank you
to my readers.
