Glenn is notorious for his unique wardrobe and he especially loves when people send him handmade pieces of clothing. A fan named Ruby spent nearly 2 years carefully crafting a sweater with everything from the family dog to stained glass windows. Glenn talked with Ruby on radio today - great conversation.
GLENN: So glad you're here. Let me go to Ruby in San Diego. Hello, Ruby. Are you there?
RUBY: Hi. You wondered if I'm still around, I am. And you made my day by wearing that sweater.
GLENN: Ruby, you're the lady in San Diego that made this sweater for me. You took you like three years to make this sweater, did you not?
RUBY: Well, it took me about a year to figure out the pattern and another two years to get it put together, that was with the surgeries.
GLENN: I just -- I love you. I love this sweater. I just love this sweater.
RUBY: I am so glad. I'm just -- I'm very proud of it.
GLENN: Yeah. You made it for me, three years ago?
RUBY: It was -- I gave it to you in April of 2012.
GLENN: Okay. And we're trying to figure out -- because I see Raphe and Cheyenne, but do I have the theory right that Raphe and Cheyenne are here?
GLENN: This is Victor on the other side. And then is this Tania walking to the house and I'm in the sweater, or is this me with the kids?
RUBY: Well, I never even thought about it that way. It's actually meant to be you. But if you look at -- under the hat, there's one stitch of white temple.
GLENN: Yeah. I see that now.
RUBY: It's you.
PAT: See, you didn't make him nearly fat enough. That's why we didn't recognize him enough.
STU: She may have thought the sweater was going to stretch.
GLENN: That's really not -- I was looking at it this morning, Ruby. This is really amazing. I looked at the church on the back, and the stained-glass window, I mean, I don't -- I don't know anything about knitting, but I don't know how you did it. It is really truly a tremendous sweater, and I thank you so much for it.
RUBY: Well, thank you for appreciating it. I was thrilled to make it for you.
GLENN: You bet. Thank you. God bless.
PAT: Really nice.
GLENN: She is so great. You know, I got this sweater out of the closet this morning, and I put it on. And I was thinking about all the people that has made us quilts and things. The homemade stuff that people send us is truly so meaningful. And I want you to know, if you've ever sent us stuff, we do keep it, and we appreciate it because we know how much time it has taken for you to make it.
