Old Hats August 21, 2010

Posted by daveintexas in Crime, Ducks, Economics, Sitemeter, Stupid shit, Terrorist Hemorrhoids, Women Ranting.

I have a bunch of hats, and I wear em from time to time.  But I also have a full head of hair, and (as far as I know), no bald spot.  So I wear Dave hair more than I wear hats.

Still, I love these hats…

Can’t believe this one is 11 years old now.  Been wearin it forever.

I had another one from Taipei but I left it on a plane in 2001 on the way back, in Vancouver I think.  Dammit.

Also, wow, those Chinese chicks sure did love that Ricky Martin fella.  Just sayin.  Whoa.

Here’s another one, the Texas Standard..

This is a pretty regular Texas hat, any boot place will have one like it.  It’s the band that makes it special, or personal…. the detail around the star, *2 color), and the silver on the clasp.. it’s not bad at all.  Goobers want to wear this.

Close up.


Here’s one I got in Maine in 1981.  It was cold that week.

I still have a little league cap from 40 years ago.
The things we keep.

I have a small collection of ball caps. Down from the one I had before we moved to the Mojave Desert. The favourite is the BNSF Railway one from the young roadmaster in Tulsa. That was three years ago.
This past winter, the Missus informed me of the ability to see the ceiling light in the crown of my noggin! Cut it all off about a month and a half ago. Yikes! as seen in the mirror. It was a good run anyway.

HAHAHAHA! Dave’s bald spot was the talk of the CT meatup!
Oh, and I gave Wiser my Teddy Roosevelt ballcap.

6. Cathy - August 21, 2010

Dave, would you please bring your Texas standard in October?

Not sure what I consider my favorite…
Jack Nicklaus autograph? Shiner Bock? Bands of America?
Songer Whitewater Rafting – New-Gauley River West Virginia?
My Cowboy hats or my straw garden hats?

I like hats.

Used to wear funky weird thrift-store hats when it was a trendy thing for girls to do in high school in the 80’s.
Since then, no.

But I had this cute little Greek fisherman’s cap that I used to wear over my french braid back when my hair was really really long.

The hat looked exactly like this: http://bit.ly/d7k3xw

I recently found a hat that I bought at McSorley’s Old Ale House in 1978.

Good times. As far as I can remember.

Yes. We need to take Scott shoppin too.

Dave gived me a cool hat, but I have children, so I can never wear it.

11. lauraw - August 22, 2010

What? Why?

12. Dave in Texas - August 22, 2010

Hahahahahaha… let em get just a bit older. It’ll be ok.

13. MCPO Airdale - August 22, 2010

I have a cap similar to the one Dave got in Maine. I bought the damned thing in Wexford, Ireland in 1981. d one I like to replace it.Just can’t give it up. . . more correctly, I can’t fin

I’ve got a bunch of old ball caps. But I’m getting to where I just don’t wear hats anymore.

Not getting rid of the caps though.

On my youngest sons last Iraq deployment he was in Kirkuk, oil capital of Iraq. Asked if I might send him a few oil field give-aways for the troops and folks in Kirkuk. Got over 100 hats plus lots of other neat give-mes from the oil field guys in Farmington, NM (San Juan Basin) – took the boy less than 2 hours to pass-out. I keep having these images of NM oilfield hats walking around Kirkuk! Gives me a smile.

>>took the boy less than 2 hours to pass-out.

Tough kid. I would pass out in two minutes in desert heat.

My first wife was from there. Her grandfather was Bill Justus of Justus Oil Well Service. Just wondering.

I hear neat stories about our guys & gals deployed. Many of them give away the ‘treats’ we send them. Many are asking for stuff like hammers, pliers, nails, simple building materials with which they fashion protection against the elements, stools, tables, whatever, for themselves and others.

It’s unfathomable how our deployed who live with so little are so willing to give away what they have and care for others. I’m humbled.

^that’s what happened when my brother was deployed. He gave away damn near all of the stuff we sent him to his men or to some of the locals he wound up meeting.
