    I have a lot of tomatoes, jalapenos, eggplant and squash. I sure wish I had some fried okra!

    Got mine in a little late this year but I checked today and I ought to be frying by next week. If you can find some, try it on the grill by splitting it down the middle seasoned with a little olive oil, salt and pepper, cooked just short of a char.

    That sounds good! Today I have so many large Jalapenos, my wife splits them in two, fills them with a mixture of goat cheese and cream cheese, and coats them with panko bread crumbs. These will be for cocktail hour!

    Thank you, Steve. Much appreciated. I'm with you, a lot of nice features on a $10 hat from back in the day.

    You're welcome.
    Crazy price for all that hat. What age are we talking about?

    There are others better qualified, Steve but I would say post war, pre-50's. Royal was a quality level at $10 and Royal Deluxe at $12.50 was the next step up. The only other Royal I owned was a 50's Whippet and the felt was good but not quite to the level of this hat. Size tag, no plastic/cellophane liner tip and labeling are what lead me to think this is a hat from the late 40's. I'm lucky enough to have a Royal Deluxe OR from a few years later that has the same amenities, the biggest difference is the sweat.

    My wife said I look like I am ready for an adventure with my Akubra Down Under and blue gortex jacket.

    Wow, that vintage. Looks as good as new, Greg. Truly a hat worthy of any collection.

    BSHW hanging out in the office. Comment from an attorney whose brother collects hats... That's a really nice hat, Doug!

    File too large to upload, and no more room to cut on this phone. .. maybe later. Man, that blue ribbon looks cool under florescent lighting.

    You're the man, Doug. That hat looks great! I've been shying away from a bright red ribbon on a hat. I think you have inspired me to go for it!

    Before I mention the thread subject Ill talk about yesterday's new hat (and I AM WEARING IT now), the light grey, almost ghost like ... hmmmmm, St. Regis. It hasnt even had a good brushing yet, by I felt called to groom it a little this morning. A mite of leather conditioner followed by the hat stretcher eased those old bones, a lot like when I hook into the inversion table, then a good pat down with packing tape helped it's complexion. But steam, just a minor steam, enough that she could sense my affection, set her st ease ( I considered singing Baby It's Cold Outside, but the season was wrong).
    I think she likes me![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
