Problems with his webshooter would be an homage to many of his Silver Age stories.

In fact, he makes that point at about 2:15 in last year's video:

A  middle-aged guy who looks like my father, wrapped in a blanket that a friend of a friend made for him.

By me, an afghan is a type of blanket.

My mom used to have a fit when someone would refer to one of her afghans as a "blanket." 

She might have had a fit but she could be mean. 

Call it whatever you want as long as you appreciate it. That's my opinion. 

She is but there are some behaviors we don't miss. 

Jeff of Earth-J said:

You don't crotchet them.

You needn't worry, though; my mom's dead now. 

I'm sorry. I would never want to insult anyone's mother's memory.  It's times like this that I remember something that my own dead mother once said to me:  "Shut up, you sh*t."

OTOH, Tracy's best friend crochets and she herself refers to her afghans as "blankets." 

You didn't insult my mother's memory.

(Sometimes I don't return fast enough to delete my own stupid posts before anyone else reads them.) 

Same here, I have one that my mom created, and she called it an "afghan". I guess just one of those weird syntax things.

I believe that's the person who made mine.

Oh! "Friend of a friend." I recognize it now. Yeah, that's hers. 

Next week is Pollinator Awareness Week! Bee aware of the role our pollinating friends play in maintaining the ecosystem!
