No, it's NOT a crown.
It's his Birthday hat — AND . . .
Today is his birthday !
Since he spends a lot of time outdoors volunteering with several nature and conservation groups, my special gift to him was a Tilley Endurables hat. Canadian-made, these hand-sewn hats are guaranteed for life not to wear out or the company will replace it for free (with a nominal shipping cost). It also came with instructions and a registration form.
Can you tell that he was having some fun with his gift?
