Hats

Some time ago I promised Tom, The Palladian Traveler, that I would post an image of myself with my Wingate & Finchley Woolly Hat. So, here it is along with a couple of other hats 😉

My Battered Tilley Hat - been on most of my travels to warmer climes including Zimbabwe; which is why the green ahs a sort of reddish look to it ;-)

    1. Tilley Hat – Bush Hat. Very much the same thing Christine but Tilley’s are made to last a lifetime and to be left in your will for someone else to enjoy 😉

  1. You have quite the hat collection and the complete ensembles to go with them! Great! Number 3 is my favorite. That’s a great hat. With all the sunshine and skin cancer concerns here in sunny California it is shocking how few people wear hats! My husband and I almost never leave home without one. I could use a more interesting variety I think…you’ve inspired me! 🙂

    1. Hi Debra – That third one was bought for District Cub Camp. The theme was Cowboys and all the leaders were required to have a cowboy hat and also a check-shirt for the campfire. The ADC who was running the camp was called Sheriff for the weekend. Rather than get one of those cheap ‘fairground’ hats I decided to push the boat out and buy a good one – It will be going to all our Cub and Scout camps in future 🙂

      I agree about the sun – the two Friendly football matches I’ve been to this season have been in very hot and sunny conditions. The Tilley hat has been ideal for those 🙂

  2. This is funny! I don’t know, just looking the same but with different hats on. Liked it though 🙂 Well done.

  3. Somehow I missed this post. How could that happen? This is the best ever!
    A good game, maybe — name the movies that this person is appearing in.
    Some possibilities:
    True Blue, A Documentary
    Mount Kilimanjaro or Bust!
    No Law West of Santa Fe — except Me!

    1. LoL – all too easily Judith when I’m on a roll and posting several times a week 😉

      Name some movies…
      Bend it like Beckham? Or perhaps – When Saturday Comes (that’s a football newspaper over here).
      Indiana Jones and the Lost Boot – One of my fellow fans was calling me Indiana Addison after I posted this 😉
      Eldorado “Might have recognised you anyhow if I wasn’t trying to figure out what that other fellow’s got on his head” “It’s called a hat” “Well I’ll have to take your word for it” Arthur Hunnicutt and James Cann aka Bull and Mississippi conversation 😉
