Wear A Hat And Be Happy #socs

You don’t see men wearing hats these days, at least not in the US. You see lots of baseball caps during the spring and summer, and a lot of watch caps (or beanies or toques or whatever you call them) in the fall and winter, but don’t see many men wearing fedoras or Homburgs anymore, except in certain communities.

They did another the next year…

And by no means are they the only ones who use hats as part of their devotion to their Supreme Being(s).

That’s all…

Linda, whose latest book, Rocked: A Romantic Comedy, is doing very well at Amazon and wherever fine eBooks are sold (and words can’t expressed how happy we are for her and how proud we are of her), runs Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Now here’s a word about the RCA Victor Portable Television.

  1. Nice job on the prompt, John. That’s a fun beat to the song – made me want to get up and dance with them. Now I have an earworm, thanks for that. I need to know how to contact that band – I know of a place that has some hats for sale – CHEAP! πŸ˜‰ I had one of those TVs (probably a newer version). Look at how long we’ve been being encouraged to spend screen time in our lives!?! πŸ˜‰


    1. They have the hats already, I think. The ones I find fascinating are the ones that look like an ottoman, i.e. the round ones without a brim. Those are made of fur and the cheap ones go for around $1000. I guess they’re normally a gift from the bride’s parents to the groom…

  2. Hi, John!

    When I was a boy, every man wore a hat. My dad and millions of other men wouldn’t have felt properly dressed if they left the house bare-headed. Women commonly wore hats as well, and some wore veils over their faces. I can’t pinpoint the exact year hats became “old hat,” but they practically disappeared from public view in most cities. Of course, cowboy hats and baseball caps have remained popular ever since the big bang.

    $125 for a tiny TV set was a substantial outlay back in those days. My family was the first on our blog to own a colored TV, and curious neighbors often dropped by just to see what it was like.

    Thanks for visiting Shady’s Place today, good buddy John!


    1. I think it was some time in the ’60’s that men stopped wearing hats. Dad never thought he looked good in a hat…

      We got our first color TV in the early ’70’s. I always felt we were substantially behind the curve on that.

      Thanks for stopping by!
