"Our" Old Hat -- Two Shoes Tuesday # 23[second] - Old
You are looking at "our" old hat.
Please don't look at me, I just finished having a 'sun spot' removed from my nose and cheek. I will be fine.
I don't know how old the hat is but when I first got hold of it was in 1978. It was the year my niece, Barb, was married. Our daughter, Karen, was four and she was the flower girl.
Karen made it up to the front of the church but then when she saw her Aunt Lois (my sister) she sat down beside her and there was no more flower girl.
When we were ready to leave the church no one was there except Lois's, my parents, and our family. This hat was hanging on a coat hook and I asked Lois about it. She said it had been there for a couple of years.
I took it over to her house when we left. I hung it on her hall tree and promptly forgot about it. The next time she came Houston way she brought it down to me. I really didn't want it but I had it.
So the next time we went up to see her in Iowa I brought it back up and left it in her house without telling her. From that time one for several years we had the game of "bring the hat and hide it in your house." That is why I am calling it "our" old hat.
I have had in now for several years without trying to get it back to her. But I will. Just have to be clever about it.
By the way, it suffered these moth holes from being in her basement too long.
These hats pictured above are three of the oldest hats in our house. On the left is a hat that Dad sometimes wore in the nursing home. It says "Sugar Daddy." I don't know why he wore such a tattered had when he had some really nice ones.
In the middle is the moth eaten hat that Lois and I take turns having in our homes. Then on the right is my old golfing straw hat for summer golf. It was wet from a rain and lost its form so I had to get another.
Have a terrific day. ☺
