I have a lot of hats. Do you?

1. "If you have $5 brain, buy a $5 helmet." The sign in the repair shop that used to service my motorcycle makes the point that a quality helmet may not be cheap, but it protects a valuable asset. The primary purpose of all of my head coverings is protection. They provide some degree of protection from rain, cold weather, UV rays, and insects. I have had some jobs that required I wear some type of head cover. Have you ever had a job that required you wear some type of head cover?

Yes, for personal protection.

2. I love being outside in all types of weather. I always look for clothing that is rated for UV protection. For kayaking and fishing, I have two hats with attachable face and neck shields. This provides some protection for my face and neck from the sun's rays coming from above and reflecting off the water. Friends, and a lot of folks I don't know, often feel compelled to say something about these hats. Most often they say they should get one for themselves. Whether it is a large brim straw hat or hats like mine with face and neck flaps, sun hats often attract attention. Do you have an eye-catching sun hat?

3. Some headpieces attract a lot of attention without providing much of a useful purpose. I suppose they are fun for people to wear. You seldom see a person wearing a ridiculous hat and a frown at the same time. Do you ever wear a funny hat like a cheesehead hat or some other novelty hat just for fun?

6. Several of the women who volunteer at the soup kitchen also make knit caps of all sizes for distribution to homeless people and families in need. They have shown me how to make them, but I haven't attempted to make any. Have you ever made a hat for yourself or someone else?
