Re: Mind's Eye Re: Community

Being somewhat British, I like the Panama hat in hot weather.  One can now get fold-able versions that stuff in your pocket like a old school cap.  One never wore one' s school cap as a hat of course - it was stuffed in the pocket for use as the ball in impromptu games of tuck-and-pass street-rugby.  We have stupid-hat contests at Ascot and Aintree every year, though few men take part.  In cricket, before the new helmets that actually protect heads, we wore particularly stupid caps and floppy hats of no protection at all, using duck and cover against fast bowling.  Sadly, I have no pics, engaging in performance art only.

Here in the South we have to wear hats in the summer if spending a great deal of time outside. Protection from heatstroke and, like your Doc suggested, Melanoma. I remember skiing at Heavenly(ski resort in Nevada/California) in March years ago with no hat and had to rub sunscreen into where my hair parted. Too warm for ski cap and anything with a brim tends to fly off at high speeds. 

I recommend a doo-rag. Goes well with fancy earrings.
