The Mad Hatter's Tea Party
16 November, 2010
Gary & Steve
were champions, working their magic on the barbie while the rest of us
were making a lot of noise. However, they were not hat wearers - but that didn't matter 'cos they were feeding us.
intrigued by the variety of hats we were wearing and decided to
do a photograhic study.
Here are his works of art.
Ray has chosen a demure little number in grey.
Maurice went for
this classic twotone job, promoting a Worldly message :
Earth, Sea and Sky.
Mack was weighted down by the Matterhorn!!.
Colin, very sensibly, had this simple number designed to reflect the heat of the Taranaki sunshine.
Keith chose a classic cheese-cutter. He told us that these flat caps are also known
as a sixpence, scally cap, Ivy Cap, Irish Cap, salmon hat, UNION Cap, Dai cap,
Jeff cap, Windsor cap, touring or driving cap, and newspaper Cap.
(Actually, he did not tell us that at all - Wikipedia did. But if he had thought about it, rest assured, he would have kept us informed.)
Glen decided all the other offerings were a little bland and chose this useful rainbow number.
Looks like Dennis is a little jealous!!
Selwyn could not identify the wearer of this one - maybe it was Lesley's.
And, in this case, we could not identify the person.
Selwyn decided, as
artists are so entitled, to give Annie honorary membership to
this group of millineriasts. He decided that her crowning glory made a good hat anyway.
Here's the noisy bit mentioned above.
