    Thanks Randall. I've been enjoying your recent displays as well. I've been loading screens for trail resurfacing using a Case backhoe.

    Lovely photos and hats - how incredible is that - I was there with my family two weeks ago - though we visited another village - Shirakawa-go, on our way to Kanazawa, after visiting Hida-Takayama, then onto Toyama and Niigata.

    I took my parents to Shirakawa-go when they were over here a few years back. We had snow then, which was also spectacular.

    Great scenery photos, and nice hats, too. I was fortunate to spend a couple of autumn weeks the Kansai region some number of years back. Beautiful countryside.

    I’m in Kansai. It’s an area I love. Some beautiful countryside, amazing culture and fun cities...just a serious lack of decent hat shops.

    It's an easy place to love. I headquartered in Kishiwada-City on my trips there, but took side trips to Kyoto, Nara, Shirahama and Kobe. And spent many days and nights in Osaka. Over the years I got to see all four seasons from cherry blossom to Donjiri festival. ha ha. I think the only hat I had back then was a tan cloth Indiana Jones hat from Disneyworld.

    It was probably a "beater" work hat in its day. One of the many off brands that could be had for just a few bucks. Thanks.

    The Danjiri festival is lots of fun, and they really go nuts over it in Kishiwada. I lived in Kyoto for a year and a half and Osaka for just over 4 years before heading to Shikoku for a few years - I'm pretty settled in Wakayama (where Shirahama is located) now. It's quiet, with clean air, hiking, camping etc but close enough to the big city that it's easy enough to head over there for some less savoury fun!

    Very nice. I worked for several years at a cemetery and I was very accustomed to the 80's Ford backhoe we had. I miss that thing. Shortly after I left, they replaced it with a New Holland. These newfangled machines these days are nice I guess, but that old Ford was my baby, and I can't believe I just said something like that about a Ford!

    Yes, Danjiri is a crazy time. I was in the Sakaimachi district and got to go for a closeup inspection of the local danjiri as they were readying it for the running. I donated some money to the cause and as a consequence got invited to some after the run parties. All I can say about that is that I'm glad I didn't have far to crawl home. Ha ha. It's possible I visited Wakayama the first time I was over. I had an all rails pass that time and we went a lot of places for day trips.

    Beautiful serene countryside and then the nightlife and people watching around Namba station is a whole other world. It has it all.

    Except hats apparently. Ha ha.

    Some technical problems kept me away from FL, solved here I am with a Panizza made in Italy and sold in Stuttgart.

    Autumn has come strongly, but with mild temperatures. It is not "the cold summer of the Souls" as an Italian poem used to say.

    Super Panizza size is 59 cm. and the color of felt is "Blue Notte" Interesting weight and very malleable

    We are facing the second wave of the pandemic. As always, you have to be confident in life:)

    Very nice indeed, beautiful colour and just a stunning lid and I like the ribbon/binding work. I really like the twist 'n flare of colour on the ribbon stay, nice...More I look at it the more I like it, very easy on the eye.

    I wore my Habig to work again, but it has been frustrating me. It’s just a little big for me. Every time I put paper or sizing tape, I think I’ve got it right...then it decides otherwise. I came to the conclusion that for a hat with a moderate crown, the center dent was too deep for my cone-head. So tonight, I finally took the plunge and reshaped a crown for the first time.

    After:

    An attempt to widen the dent and create a teardrop with a bump for the cone-head. I also tightened up the pinches. It seems good so far. I’m feeling optimistic, but we’ll have to wait and see.

    I've got a similar shaped nogging myself, I've found a more open type crown with a high center and/or high back of the top of crown fits me best, I often have a problem with some crowns being too low at the back which makes it hard for a center crease with a lower back not able to work for me... Wonderful thing about life that we're all different in ways.

    Good job on the re-shaping of the crown, looks very tidy too with the tighter pinch. I like it
