Apparel ~ Mens Dress Hats, Got 2–More to Come, 12/19

Who knew? As a part of my attire for the 19th Century Dickens Holiday in Fayetteville, North Carolina, I decided I would wear a Bowler Hat. To my surprise, I developed an interest in wearing hats. I found several at and added a few to my wishlist. My son checked it before sending gifts for my birthday and Christmas and voila, I have a Homburg. I’m a happy hatter.

I received surprise birthday and Christmas gifts today from my son [Michael] and his family. Well, I knew packages were on the way, but not the contents. I am very happy to have my second hat–a Homburg [the Bowler was 1st] and to have 4 more LED light-bulbs for the household. Thank you to the Artis Family!!! [Flickr Album]
