A modest proposal-

 :howdy:
I am going to celebrate my birthday (May 26th) with the purchase of my very own hat, whicj I have dubbed "The Manhunter".  What I want is a top hat with a five inch crown and a 5"-6" brim! and a 3-4x beaver to boot in Black, with stampede strings and in size 8.

It is not impossible to find, but will be done from scratch unless one of you knows a hatmaker with the ability and tools to make it a reality.

After almost six years of being housebound, i have lost enough weight to go out amongst 'em and will do so in 2013.

Yup

Egad!!  Tis time for my dosage of 2 ounces of Wild Turkey over two ice cubes and my Valium!!

I found my hat!   It's wool felt with a 4" crown and 6" Brim.   Costs under $100.00
It's a woman's wide brimmed hat!!!!!!   After I remove the fooferaws, It will become a MANLY HAT, worn by a MANLY MAN!

*Growl*  *Grrrrrr*  *Snort*
  It's a quick fix for me until I can get a really wide brimmed Danite Hat

I must go now and overmedicate....

Four fingers?!!  Egad sir,   I am no souse!  Just that space between the top of my Index finger pointing to eleven on the clock and the bottom of my little finger pointing to the seven!.  One and only one drink per eight hour day.
