Greetings Warden’s and Brethren,
Hats, some people wear them often and others never seem to wear them. Some only wear them occasionally, depending on their environment or the season. Some have a number of different ones that they wear depending on the occasion. Most only wear one at a time and others seem to wear multiple ones all at once. Here is an interesting story I recently heard. A distinguished Quaker is said to have once kept his hat on in the presence of Charles II. The king observed it, and took his own off. “Friend Charles,” said the Quaker, “put thy hat on.” The king replied, that it was usual for only one person to wear his hat in that room.
If you are wearing a hat, wear it well. Take pride in your hat. Some people will recognize you depending on the type of hat you are wearing. That means that you may be representing whatever that hat signifies. Choose your hats wisely. Make sure that you are comfortable in the hat that you are wearing. Sometimes a hat may be too big for you to wear. Sometimes it may be too small and you should be looking elsewhere for a bigger hat. Sometimes you just can’t seem to find the right hat for you to feel comfortable in. It is important and no small thing to make sure that you have just the right hat on for just the right occasion and it fits properly.
