My Favorite Hat

I see it in the shop window, blue straw, white braided trim. On the back it has a lovely bow. I buy it on a whim and don it, sink or swim. I wear it on the avenue. I wear it on the street. So happy in my hat of blue, I smile at all I meet and some of them I greet. The sunshine is so blinding bright, my eyes begin to blink. A fellow thinks to his delight, I am sending him a wink. A big mistake, I think. I hurry to my little home, to one whose waiting there. I promise him I’ll no more roam. My blue hat I’ll only wear for the one for whom I care. For Favorite Hat contest sponsored by Carol won a 5th in this

How funny that your "blink" made this fellow think you were winking at him, Joyce. Such a special hat this is! It reminds me of the days when we used to parade on the boardwalk in Atlantic City where the Easter bonnet contest was held. So many beautiful hats were seen! Today, young women seem only to wear sun visors. Give me a hat like this any day! Best wishes in Carol's contest, dear. I think she'll love this. Love you, Carolyn
