The 04/24/13 Joy Jar

23 Apr


It’s going to be nearly 70 degrees in Seattle and that means not only nice weather, but putting the winter hats away and bringing out the Spring and Summer hats. At one time women had a collection of hats. The hat was a finishing touch. Moi still thinks a nice hat is a finishing touch. Today’s deposit in the ‘Joy Jar’ is a hat which fits the mood.

Some hats can only be worn if you’re willing to be jaunty, to set them at an angle and to walk beneath them with a spring in your stride as if you’re only a step away from dancing. They demand a lot of you.”
Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys

A politician should have three hats. One for throwing into the ring, one for talking through, and one for pulling rabbits out of if elected.
Carl Sandburg

If a woman rebels against high heeled shoes, she should take care to do it in a very smart hat.

George Bernard Shaw

Grab your coat, and get your hat, Leave your worry on the doorstep, Just direct your feet To the sunny side of the street.

Dorothy Fields, ‘On the Sunny Side of the Street’.

The way you wear your hat, The way you sip your tea, The mem’ry of all that No, no! They can’t take that away from me!

Ira originally Israel Gershowitz Gershwin
‘They Can’t  Take That  Away from Me’, song from the film musical Shall We Dance? (music by George Gershwin).

Women who love hats don’t get jealous.  It makes them happy to see a hat that looks good on someone else.  Women who wear hats know who they are.
