    I am a classic movie fan, and always get a kick out of the hats men wore with business suits in the forties and fifties. Then there were the women's hats, fairly extravagant worn by ladies with their formal and semi-formal attire.

    One of my favorite old movies, His Gal Friday, with Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell, the hat that Miss Russell wears is huge, with a wild design.

    I guess by the time the late fifties came around, and early sixties, men chucked wearing hats with business suits, and women stopped wearing hats all together.

    When I was a suit and tie guy, and the end of the work day, there was no greater feeling than to take the tie off, and slap the baseball cap on.

    My brother Don has always worn a cowboy hat, I doubt anyone would recognize him without one. Earlier this month, my folks were here from out of state to visit. We all sat down to eat, and my dad looks at me rather sternly, "Boy, you gonna eat with that hat on?"

    "Sorry Pops, I forgot."

    I agree that other than church, I pretty much have one on all the time.

    Enjoyed the post. Thanks
