What Hat Are You Wearing Today ?

Seemed like the right weather for this one on my walk today; brisk, but not actually bone-chilling. A late 50s to early 60s chocolate Royal Stetson, 4x2. Another acquisition on my fedora-buying binge in Oregon and Washington about 20 years ago.

OK, I'll post today's hat in a bit, but as the jokes thread is on hiatus, and I'm just busting to tell this hat joke, here it goes...

A Rabbi is walking down the street when a gust of wind comes along, lifts his hat off his head, and takes it about 20-30 feet down the street. Now Billy, a young man (who wasn't Jewish), grabbed that hat and returned it to it's owner.

The Rabbi said, "Thank you! Here's $20 for a reward!"

So naturally, he takes his $20 to the track.

Upon arriving home, Billy's wife says, "Where have you been?"

Billy tells the story of rescuing the hat and tells his wife, "When I got there, a horse in the first race was named Fedora, so I put my $20 on that horse, it paid 10:1 and sonofagun, it won!"

"In the second race, there was a horse named Stetson. I figured this was a sign, so I put my $200 dollars on the horse paying 5:1 and it won, too!"

"In the third race was a horse named Chateau, which is French for hat, so I put my $1000 on it, and darn it, it came in fifth and I lost it all!"

His wife rolled her eyes and told Billy, "Chateau is French for house, Chapeau is French for hat. What was the name of the horse that won?

Billy replied, "Some Japanese horse named Yarmulke!"

We were expecting heavy rains today so I wore my beater of all beaters to the climbing gym again. Besides, I don’t figure anyone is going to walk away with my ratty old Fed IV while I’m on the wall.

This neurological illness that’s got me down has damaged (among other functions) my finger dexterity and climbing seems to be good therapy for that. Still too early to see any substantial improvement but it’s darn sure fun to be back climbing again after more than 2 decades away.

Hutproduktiv (Wien) "Standard" possibly later 1930s early 1940s but hard to date. I am pretty sure this is a shade of dark blue because of the farbe/color number. I like the lower crown with wider brim form. I haven't worn this Soft Felt in almost 4 years. I found it back in 2017.

Glad to see you at it, Nathan.
