— Six Word Saturday —

my six words:
Sister clueless — she has the hat

Once more I have given my sister, Lois, this moth eaten hat.  She doesn't know it yet but she will find it soon I am sure.  It is under something, something that goes with her back to Iowa.  I put it there when I visited her at her grand-daughter's home here in Houston this fall. 

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 on 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 think the moth holes came while at her home.  It was old but in nice wearing shape when I found it in the church.

It has been at our house now for quite a few years without me trying to get it back to her. But that has ended, for now.

This article's beginning was in a previous post I wrote earlier this year before this latest trade.  Read the earlier one here (link) .

HaHa! This is a very unique game between two siblings, Dr Jim :)
have a nice Saturday

much love...
LOVE this!! How fun!
That's a better-travelled hat than me, Jim! Come to think of it, I'm feeling a bit moth-eaten these days.
Have a wonderful Christmas! I know you will.
Can I share a little something your youngsters might like?
LOVE IT! I used to have a similar game with a good friend--it involved a rather creepy-looking antique doll. When one of us would visit the other, it was always left behind . . . somewhere . . .
Crazy how these things get started. Enjoy!
What fun! I wonder how long it will take her to find it.
What a fun thing to do with that old hat. I love it.

Have a fabulous day. ☺
How fun! :)
Ha ha, good game!
A fun game of pass the hat. It looks like it has seen better days Jim
What a clever idea!
