Pat in a Hat

Pat (aka Grenville) is a man of many hats, and the one he's wearing today is a very special one.

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?


He is a man of many hats — as you can see.

Wishing my best friend and husband, a wonderful celebration. Tonight, we will dine out at a local Thai restaurant, his dinner choice. It's also expected that the card fairies will be dropping in with special messages.

Happy Birthday to Pat! I can see he loves his present, and does a fine job of modeling it. The photo in the upper right hand corner is definitely the way he should wear it while he's doing his volunteer work.

Happy birthday, that new hat looks like a real deal.. it looks like it can be folded up and stuck in a pocket and not lose its shape... that is a lot of hats. bob only wears a hat when he is fishing.. a straw hat or a baseball cap. that is the only two he has..

Should register those pics of him wearing the BD hat as a National Treasure. I can see a fifth person on Mt. Rushmore, can't you?! Hippo Birdie, Pat!
