Over the weekend, Tom and I headed to Houston to attend his old Rotary Club's annual fundraiser. We had a nice time, and it was great seeing so many old friends.
I was a bit surprised when one of the ladies, that I only casually know, approached me with this festive gift bag.She said she heard that we were coming, and just knew that I would want this..... to add to my collection.
I put my hand in the bag, and recoiled a bit,when I came in contact with this. Thought for a minute it was alive.
In case you are wondering what it is...like I was. Maybe pulling down this netting will give you a clue,
or possibly putting this pin back in the top. That's right folks.It is a hat. Possibly from the 1950's? For some reason she thought that I collected them? I didn't have the heart to tell her that I didn't. I thanked her for her thoughtfulness, and will follow up with a note (don't worry she doesn't know about this blog).
