We Don’t Recognize You Without Your Hat, Sir

Straw Hats from Hartford York Hats - Men's Scala Hand Crocheted Raffia Summer Hat - The RaffiaJack Perkins, host of the TV show A Gulf Coast Journal with Jack Perkins, in Florida, says that people tell him they don’t recognize him without his hat. It’s true Mr. Perkins wears a hat (mainly for sun protection because the program is taped outdoors); however, he does admit on his blog entry that

people who say they don’t recognize me “without your hat” underestimate the collection. There are baseball caps, of course. (Not neatly arrayed on the back shelf of the car for people following to admire, as is the Florida wont.) And western hats, cowboy hats, Stetson, Resistol. Florida straws, Australian bush hats. Tilley Endurables.

I never fancied collecting stamps or coins or barbed wire, but I do enjoy collecting a few serviceable hats.

Seems that Mr. Perkins won’t be in a “three thousand dollar Montecristi” until he finds “a way to put new hats on the expense account.”

Mr. Perkins, you’re some smart man. With or without that hat.
