    . I wish I had seen that tutorial before I put a hole in my thumb trying to get a needle through the felt and new ribbon on my Stetson western last week! An awl would have been smart... Seamstress I am not.

    Time to spam some more pictures.
    This is my Resistol 20x Diamond Horseshoe Buckskin (after all it's a 20x, not a 15x). As I said before, this hat was used on a ranch by someone that worked there and the ranch owner sold it to me. Don't know if the person who used it got fired or if he got a new hat nor the reason the ranch owner was selling a hat other people use. Paid $96 for it with shipping. It have some spots I don't know how to remove but for now I don't want them removed. I think it adds some character to the hat.




    Those are the marks. They were bigger but I was able to take some dirt off with a brush. The sweatband is cracked there but still holds. Buckskin Beaver Imperial can be read on sweatband.

    Something was written there

    Dirt on edge.

    Looks good on me

    This my my only straw (for now). It was new when I bought it. Paid $53 with shipping. It's a Resistol George Strait 8x shantung Panama. I bought it because I didn't know how straw hats were. Here in Portugal, straw hats are made completely different. I changed the brim a bit because I was not happy with the George Strait crease. I wear it only on summer.

    You look like an old time rancher, is that ice tea or something stronger? Nice photo.

    That's probably it. Two fingers of iced tea.

    I'm having two fingers of "iced tea" in my highball glass right now!

    Tea? I guess it could be called that if children are present. In my adult world it's called Irish Whiskey. And savoring it in the mountains without another human within 15 miles makes it taste especially delicious.

    Quiet, solitude, a fire, and good whiskey. I'm not sure it gets any better than that.

    Would that be Bushmills or Jameson?
