Beware the Viking Cometh, or the adventures of a hat.

As it was 36 F this morning, I brought out my viking hat. This is a good time to share my post from last December. After being in the closet for 6 months, who knows what this hat will get up to this winter. Brace yourselves…

What I didn’t realize at the time is that a hat had invaded my life and glommed onto me. There was something mystical yet annoying about this hat.  It did odd things and in odd ways.

    I’m in the middle of watching Vikings on Amazon Prime. It’s great – strong characters, interesting storylines, tensions between the Norse religion and Christianity – but, no viking hats. I’ve not seen one character wearing a hat with horns.
    I have a festival hat, a small round hat with a bead pattern on it. I don’t know if I’ll get to any more festivals, I feel I’m getting a bit old for all the camping etc. But if I do I’ll have to try and find the hat.
    They’re like that, hats. Minds of their own.
    Take care
