I have several mugs from Chetek in Barron County, way on the other side of Wisconsin, in the "Indian Head" region.
It is beautiful there, but has become too touristy, with outboard motors and skiers, so now I go fishing in nearby Fish and Potato lakes. Those are No Wake lakes, where a man can fish in peace.

Oh Man, those are some beauties..... wow. I was born and raised in WI, lived in both Milwaukee and Door County areas and grew up with a fishing pole in my hand. Sadly, I rarely fish now living in TX. :(

On that trip my friend Ron Szelag fought a huge Muskie for like 12 minutes in Potato Lake, with a crowd gathering by the shore to watch. Just when we were about to land it on the boat it turned out that our net was too small and it got away!
I know, typical fisherman's story, right?

What hat am I wearing? Hell, I can't decide anymore! I might just have to stay indoors today.....nah!
Ever since joining the lounge I have gone down the rabbit hole....Straws & Felts all in a row.
Need to stay off the online buying sites for awhile, catch my breath, and just enjoy each day that comes along. :)

I’d never do that. It’s hard to deny you have a problem when they are all there in front of you. Worse, what if the wife sees after you’ve been telling her that you just have a dozen or so but keep rotating them? Where’s the plausible deniability?

May I suggest watching the World Cup finals today, Michael? They will start on a little while, and most of the world is getting ready to watch it.
Croatia, with only four million people and smaller than most Mexican States, reached the final against France.
It will be memorable, and the Croatian, Russian, and French women in the stands are gorgeous, so even if you don't like soccer you will be entertained.

You just about lost me until you mentioned watching gorgeous women. Now there’s a sport I can get into!

It is 9:17 a.m. in Mexico City, and I am on my bedroom balcony drinking coffee from my "The House on the Rock Wisconsin" souvenir cup, watching the Wimbledon finals, and waiting for the World Cup finals to begin at 10.
Beautiful day!

One of my two favorite hats, an Optimo Manhattan in Camel. Tiffani sent me some feathers, and I put this one on it as an experiment, thinking I would remove it later. Now I can't get myself to do it. :)

Great looking hat. I take my feathers out, but that small one looks like it belongs. Strange that Optimo calls the hat camel; on my monitor it looks much more brown. In any case, it’s a fine hat for sure.

Hotter than the hinges that hang the gates of hell today - and humid, too! So, after attending Divine Service this morning, I donned my Cubs 2016 National League Champs polo and my white Panama Jack hat and headed out for a nice, cold beer!

By the way, this is one of the FEW times I would EVER set a hat on its brim.

LOL...point taken, you're absolutely right. However, I just sent the wife on a 7 day Caribbean cruise with the 2 grand-kids, she has been wanting to take them for a long time. I have the whole week alone in the house to indulge my guilty pleasures. (trapped in a tiny cruise ship room with two teenage grand-kids is not one of them).

So, I dug out all my hats to shape and clean them up a bit and to decide if any need to sent to ebay. Seems I have this great Stetson Playboy from the 50's that may need to go, it is a 7 1/4 Long Oval, my head is so round it just doesn't fit right. The brim goes wonky when I put it on no matter how I shape it. Long Ovals don't work well on me so I may just let it go. Thus, All will be tidy-ed up, back in boxes and back into the closets with my rotation hats neatly placed back on the pegs in my closet. :)

Hardly wore a hat yesterday and forgot to take a picture. Playing around a bit this morning trying out a few.

A couple of dream hats, Stefan! That chamois is incredible. It’s a good thing we aren’t the same size or I’d be tempted to engage in a spot of theft :)

Yes, it is much more brown than what I would call Camel. I love it.
