Nightmare for: Helm, Street

Posted by Dirck on 30 May, 2011

Just a small note of interest for others wearing traditional hats in a quotidien way– carrying a small child on your shoulders in the stereotypic happy-family-on-the-town manner while wearing your brown fedora can see the hat run briskly through Indiana Jones and well into Freddy Kruger.  It is worth the damage in terms of filial bonding, but don’t say you weren’t warned.

Image nabbed from http://blog.pennlive.com/thrive/2007/12/a_dickens_christmas_toast.html-- I hope it's public domain, because that's what I asked Google to give me.

Notice that Bob has taken his hat off.

Today’s pen: Parker 45 with a fine French-made gold point applied
Today’s ink: Herbin’s Bleu Myosotis

PS– the previous entry’s pen proved unrepairable, and part of the gizmological package is sealed against tampering by humans.  I learned only that ball-points that cost $30 are considered at least semi-disposable.
