When I was 18, I bought a Shriner's fez at a thrift store. It was some dead man's fez. My father dissuaded me from wearing it. He didn't think Shriners would appreciate my attempt at fashion. He never let my brother or I wear my uncle's Purple Heart medal when we were kids for the same reason. It was for that reason that my brother and I both revere that Purple Heart, though my brother and I are very different people. He and I agree on very little. My brother still has it in the original box that was sent to my great-grandmother from President Roosevelt.

I earned a chestful of medals, some good ones to be proud of, among them. I never earned a Purple Heart. Ten years in the Navy during the Cold War, I never had the chance.
They dont "feel" the same as the others. That one is earned with blood.

The Open Road takes some getting used too. My kids like this one best. It's a stiff hat that's for sure.

We've had a cold snap. The temperatures have been in the 70s, low 80s. The past four days I've been wearing my black felt fedoras and long pants. People say I am starting to look like myself again. I have more spring in my step. Autumn brings out the best in me. I love a felt fedora with a high crown and a wide brim. I stuff the knot in the band full of feathers that I pick up when I'm walking the dog. I love autumn. Soon, it will cold enough to wear an overcoat. One nice thing about living where I live is that I never have to shovel snow.
