This hat of mine rests on the porch, waiting out our inclement weather. You see, I like chapeaus, all kinds of hats, really. I don't think I've ever come across a derby I didn't like or at least try on. Baseball, top, straw, pork pie, cowboy, and others. Now, I know what you're thinking. No, I've never been in a stage production, but I'll take a chance on wearing any type of hat gear or disguise for that matter. This hat seen here I picked up in the Caribbean on last summer's cruise. I think, it's me. Yes, it's true. I've never really set foot on the stage in any drama production per se, unless you count my singing and silly vaudeville routines in our 'shows' in the garage on Stevens Avenue. At a nickel a head, we packed the place! But in many ways and on many days, I feel I'm giving a command performance in this play called Life. Hahaha! Yes, I've worn hats; I've worn wigs; I've worn beards. Heck, I'd even wear a dress, if the price was right. I have no shame!
