one last post: FUNERAL PYRE

.

In Memoriam: MSH



My straw hat downgraded significantly beyond when these pictures were taken and, indeed, was replaced a few weeks ago.

My straw hat, in other words, is deceased.

This is a new experience for me. Usually I leave my hats on public transit or in a fabric store--I have never worn one out. So I wasn't sure what to do with it. But we are moving, and it couldn't come with us.

So last night, when we headed out into the desert to burn a bag of receipts and credit card statements, we brought friend hat with us.

I said a few words, then we sent it to haberdasherheaven.

Goodbye, friend hat.

Adieu.
