A rel hat rack or a metaphoric hat rack? :D

So it's a "dry wall" hat? You had us going round and round all this time over a carpenters hat - and it turns out to be a "DRY WALL HAT"! :???:

Silver, I'm ashamed of you! :wink:

Well despite the banter, which I thoroughly enjoyed, Murgen hit the then nail on the head (for all you who are wearing the carpenter hat) :)

I'll have to dig through the archive of the Tri-State Neighbor to see if Woster had written anything.

Well, Radar, I can't show you a website or article, but if you're interested, I can tell you what hats I wear or have worn.

Not interested? Well too bad, here goes.

I have, besides my seed corn cap, been found under a real hard hat while I was a logger for 10 years (when I was much younger and foolhardy). I have spent a bit of time in a carpenter's hat (although there is not a great demand for a chainsaw-type carpenter :lol: ). I also have the "headgear" of a manufacturer :wink:, as I produce and sell a heavy duty door latch for farm building out of my workshop.

Currently. I also have a school beanie as I am halfway through a program working toward a degree in Counselling (at the ripe old age of 49, no less)! And I almost forgot that I have a bit of a writers cap, as I do a little writing for the occasional newspaper. That may be the most fun cap to wear, as it never ceases to amaze me that someone will actually PAY me for writing down a bunch of words!

What are some of the hats you other folks on here wear?

My goodness. This could really be a fun thread.

My hats:

I worked for the Game and Fish in Wyoming for awhile, so I had a G&F hat. Wouldn't wear one any more though, just don't agree with their policies~or that of Montana or SD either~

My most current cap would be a Vigortone Ag Products one, of course. But then I would have to wear a newspaper hat too, as I work at a newspaper and have since 1977. That hat is getting worn pretty thin.

I have been a licensed Livestock Dealer. That hat was only worn for a short time, though. And it was interesting while it lasted. Decided I wasn't made of tough enough stuff for that job, though. Those guys really earn their living, let me tell you.

I've worn a horse trader's cap, too. And that was really a lot of fun. We dealt with a good guy and we were sending horses all over the place~sometimes sight unseen because we stood behind the horses. Good horses, met good people and it was great fun. Had a fellow come from California to buy horses that modeled Levis and Wrangler jeans. We stopped at a convenience store in Helena to gas up. When we went inside the woman at the counter said to me, "Is that your husband?" I said, "No. Why?" She said, "that is the best looking man I have ever seen!" He was a really nice guy to boot. He heard her, and his face was still red when we got back in the pickup to leave. We spent three days looking at 28 horses~He was most interesting. He ranched between some big cities in California and he said you would never know his country was anywhere around. This was about the time one of the first radical animal-rights groups were meeting in Montana. He told us we sure didn't want them here. I can't remember if it was PETA or not. Anyway he told us about car bombings and more that they were responsible for in California. Well, good old Montana~they wound up with their headquarters in Missoula. If no one else wants 'em, Montana will take 'em. Especially Missoula or Bozeman.

I really enjoyed my hat as a Roping Club Secretary and Team Roping Announcer. I had fun doing some of the State Finals for the USTRC.

And then there is all the hats a ranchwife, mother and grandmother wears~many different colors of them for sure.

Gosh, I was kinda bummed today but now I feel much better. I've had more fun than should be allowed!! Thanks for the idea! I am looking foreward to reading about other hats!!

Let's see......................
I've got a "Moonshining" hat, a "cotton picking" hat, a "cow milking" hat, a "cowboy" hat (no, they are not the same), a "cow breeding" hat, a "rowcroppers" hat, a "musical" hat, a "business man's" hat (my least favorite), a "sawmill" hat, a "landscaping" hat, and lots of ball caps.
