I should really put in all my links from the Sheep and Wool Festival. But I don't feel like it...so I'm going to talk about hats.
We have too many hats.
I have several modern hats, a Tilley Hat for sailing and going being a tourist. My sons have them too.
I have some modern hats, like the one I'm going to wear to Barry and Elise's son's Bar Mitzvah.

Abe has a small collection of baseball hats.
Wendy has a few of her own, mostly go unworn.
But we really have a lot of colonial hats.
The prettiest is Wendy's Purple Silk, made by the Fairy Godmother, Hallie.
See? Here is the shelfohats
There are bonnets,
And straw hats galore,
We have foolish looking, mostly dead, old tricorns, (I hope he actually threw that one away!)
and nice tricorns (that always need brushing),
And you can see my nice hat boxes that I make...lots of carefully cut cardboard taped together with the kind of paper packing tape you have to wet with a sponge to get to stick. I hope to get more made, and color code them by type of hat and person they belong to...
But, really...we have too many hats!
The funny thing is...they all get worn!
