This is what I missed, I suppose and it looks pretty nice!
Now for the mystery of the hat that I bought in Montevideo, at the vendor's market, outside the port gates. A very lovely leather and fur trimmed hat that I just loved! I have a small head, and fine hair, so I have a hard time finding a hat to fit. I saw this hat, loved it, was satisfied with the price, tried it on, and admired how it fit in the mirror the fellow held up for me to see how lovely it looked and I bought it, very pleased with my purchase.
I got back to the ship, found Tom and showed him my hat. He admired it also. We waited until we went down to the room and I tried it on for him and he agreed that finally a hat that fit me!!
So, it went into my suitcase, and when I got home, unpacked and put aside, until one day, I got dressed in my new coat I had bought a month or so before, and was anxious to see how the hat looked with my coat. Well, something happened to it, and I, nor anyone can figure out what!!!
Here is how I looked when I put it on my head.
It grew!! Why did it grow? Did my head shrink....that's possible, as I know I have less brains everyday!! It honestly fit perfect, so why did it slide right down over my head, past my nose and mouth! That bumpy part at the top is just the picture frame in the background, it has a nice round top on it. Tom and I laughed and laughed, but we are both in the dark as to why it would do that. I may take it down to the shoe maker to see if he can take it apart and sew it up tighter.
GET WELL TO BOTH MERIDITH WHO BROKE HER ELBOW, AND JOAN WHO FELL AND NEEDS TO HAVE SURGERY ON HER SHOULDER!!
