"If there is a sin, in my opinion, it is messing with a persons' hat."
There is a movie titled WILD BILL about Wild Bill Hickcock. Opening scene he gets into a fight with three dudes with the dudes shot and dead. He turns to the bartender and says, "Feller ought to not touch another fellers hat." Happens more than once in the movie. Jeff Bridges plays Bill.
On removing a hat, I was raised by my Grandparents and pop never wore a hat as I recall. When he left for work, he wore a suit and tie but no hat. Neither did my dad. When pop got to work, he changed into his work clothes. Afterwork he changed back to the suit and tie. Growing up I rarely wore a hat or cap and it wasn't until I was in the Air Force that I was even required to wear a head cover. After getting out again I was usually bare headed. I might wear a watch cap during a hunt if it was cold.
It wasn't until I was diagnosed with cancer and I started losing hair that I wore a cap or hat. I started wearing this cowboy hat my late wife bought for me for a change and the nurses at the chemo place liked it so much I started wearing it when I left the house. Then when the chemo was done, the ladies where I went for the radiation also complimented me. One even scolded me when I wore a baseball cap one day. I even get stopped at the store getting groceries and complimented on the hat by strange women. Guess I should just keep on wearing it. Who knows what might come of it. Been widowed for almost four years and frankly, I'm awfully tired of my cooking.
