The Hat

Published:

 

 

It cleaned up real nice.  Best Christmas gift I've had in years.  Probably still would be if it weren't the only Christmas gift I've had in years.

Makes me wish I knew a Quaker I could show it off to so's he could shoot me a compliment by telling me, "It looks real plain."

Only thing wrong with that picture is that I betrayed the difficulty I was having keeping from grinning.  Holding a camera out at arm length and trying to take a picture of your new hat can be like that.

Smiling good thoughts at you blogsterisimos.  But not grinning.  That's what self-discipline's all about.  Remember where you heard it.

ok Jack, here ya go: a line from the movie WITNESS with Harrison Ford, great film "You look plain". Except technically you wouldn't because you have fancied up your beard by shaving it into a configuration. The writer's of that film are from my town and I've seen it maybe 8 times. It's got to be on my top 20 favorite movies list. Worth seeing if you're ever so inclined. Or perhaps that's where you got the line from. BTW, nice nose, not a meatball, TA

My thought is, TA, that the 'you look plain' method of observing a desirable plainness must be fairly standard among Amish and Mennonites.

It's not a look I've ever strived for, but I don't mind it. However, I also like my cavalry whiskers and when I can get by with having it, my curly locks. Even the wattles on the neck suit me fine, though I haven't cultivated them and haven't always had them, so far as I recall.

But I resent the suggestion that nose ain't a meatball, a potato. It runs proud and has a long history through multiple generations of my family. That, and the flop-ears you can't see because of my curly locks.

Genes, DNA and life have gone to a lot of trouble to give me that nose. I won't have you minimizing it by suggesting it ain't a meatball.

Don't know where, however, that eye that looks slightly off in the wrong direction so's if I was a horse you wouldn't buy me comes from. Might be from the time my sister hit me in the head with a baseball bat.

Thanks for the comment
