Bought a new cowboy hat today. A nice wide-brimmed palm straw with a Gus crown.
Took it back this evening and exchanged it for one a skosh bigger.

I burned the bacon this morning. It didn't smell too great, but we ate it anyway.

Yesterday I found out business taxes don't have anything to do with tax day, and it turns out I'm already into my second month of being delinquent. :facepalm:

Staying up for late NHL games should be an acceptable reason for being late to work in the morning. I'm going to have to talk to someone in HR.

Sunbody palm hats. I love mine. It's virtually indestructible. The Guatemalan ones are easy to shape at home too. Just add a little water and they mould like clay.

My new one is similar to the Mexican Fine Palm Gus with a 4" brim shown in your link. It's a two-toned affair that's stiffened. I have a humongous one with a 6.5" brim that one of my daughters bought for me in Tijuana that's not stiffened. It's great for keeping the sun off my face but it flops around like a fish out of water in the wind.
