The consolation prize is that I became a man who wears hats - both to stay warm in the winter and to guard against the sun in the summer. Over the years I've accumulated quite a collection of these head toppers - everything from a skull cap to porkpie.Loved ones have told me never to wear a hat like this - apparently I am too old and too unhipster. Still, I tried one out walking the dogs the other day.

That settled it.
