    and recently bought somehing I didn't need. I bought a cap, a plain, simple, cotton cap. I had been shopping for pants and not seeing exactly what I wanted, I found myself on a site called Bon Clic Bon, a hat and cap shop. I saw this cap, a well constructed cotton cap and bought it. Now I didn't need it but I liked it and bought it. It turns out this is a French site. I haven't gotten the cap yet but it said shipping time was five to ten days.

    I have seven other caps and hats. While men don't wear hats like they used to, through out the midwest, the plains states, the baseball cap is common fare. I never liked baseball caps and would never vwear one but recently my grandson came over in a Oklahoma baseball cap. I thought it looked good on him and asked him to get me one and gave him my credit card. He did and now I am the owner of a red baseball cap with 'Oklahoma'
    across the front.

    This cap I just purchased will be my eighth cap or hat. I almost bought a hat but the one or two I liked were a bit pricy. I wear a hat whenever I am out of the house, and sometime when I am in the house. Here is a picture of the recently purchaed headwear.

    I noticed a number of golfers were wearing a cap of this nature
    during the PGA tournament. This one caught my attention. I like
    the color, not one you see every day, and it is well construsted
    cotton. It suits me. Not that anyone gives a hang nail but I will
    show off my collection either as photos or as an avatar. I mean
    what else can a home bound body do. Cheers.

    I hope you will take a "selfie" and model your new hat for us when it arrives, Bill.

    I'd like to see pics of your hats.

    My father was of the generation that wore hats all the time.

    I wore one of these when I had my Austin Healey:

    I wear baseball caps now, but always the right way...never this:

    I have bought hats several times, thinking that I liked the look of them, but then I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing them. Mostly, if I wear a hat, it's a baseball-type cap to keep my hair from getting in my way, or a warm one in the winter. I have a few hats that I've taken a picture with on Mac's Photo Booth but have never worn in public.
