Hmm, requirements are a wool tweed. Those don't look quite right, plus expensive and shipping to Canada...

I think I'll order one online from Scotland, get good quality Harris Tweed.

Nah, we have a guy coming by with his tractor to get most of the nasty stuff out of the way.

And the rest would be much more fun to remove with these than with a shovel. But I have a shovel

Problem is that snow melts, turns into water, freezes, covers driveway with ice...

What's your definition of a proper hat?
Baseball caps look stupid, toques are too casual, my fedora is too formal, and my swiss military hat doesn't quite cut it for everyday wear:

The only good snow is snow that is too light to need shoveling.
Need more than a light dusting for skiing.

one's cap should conceal one's point not accentuate it unless that's a fin in which case one is merely maintaining one's streamlined contour...just sayin'

even Duluth trading company has a harris tweed flat cap

The problem is that the funeral home website limits posting from IP addresses outside of the USA. Gail will see your post, especially if you leave it here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/132-pentaxian-lounge/357957-rip-rupert.html


Interesting, I was able to leave a message there, which was later accepted through the 'moderator' at the home.

Is that the one you wear to the big shed.


Just like the car workers at Chrysler who drove Fords and Holdens to the works car park.
