#tbt to 3 years ago in a pool in Vegas.
I remember walking into that pool, seeing that large man wearing that hat and thinking "I'm going to leave with that hat" - I've had that hat for three years now.
He told me that when he was 18, him and his friends all bought the same "coon" hat. Every trip they took, every party they went to, every wedding - they all wore their hats. He explained that over the years some of them had lost their hats, or given them away and that he was one of the few who still had his.
He told me it was time to pass it along and asked me if I would take good care of it.
This hat has been around the world with me, it's attending parties in the middle of the BC forest, music festivals, a wedding, bonfires and so much more. I love this hat because of how much the previous owner loved it.
Remember to pass on some love today, tomorrow and always.
