Subject: RE: Help: Wearing hats or caps ; Manners?
Um, Wincing Devil - I hate to break this to you, but that isn't a hat. I think it might be a ferret. And it fell off.Allow me to be the first to state that I have no opinion on the wearing of vermin in public places.
One thing I might add though, is that hats, in days of yore, could generally be relied on to differentiate age groups.Look at old photos of hockey or baseball games, or street scenes. Men in fedoras, boys in caps. Now, in North America, anyway, a lot of adult men dress pretty much as their adolescent sons do.Am I alone in noticing this?
Good day to you all(tipping my hat)
