Exclamation Ben's Guiri Sun hat

We finally got a glimpse of the famous guiri sun hat that makes Ben look "like a total tourist".

To my astonishment I have something identical in all but name... mine is the gringo sun hat.

Not only do Ben and I seem to share barbers... (Ben, in the video prize draw, almost made me jump out of my chair in shock, much the same as when I look in the mirror each morning -> "¡Ay! ¡¿Qué es eso?! O, soy yo...")

...but we also have the same great taste in sun hats.

LONG LIVE THE SUN HAT!

I probably need psychiatric help, but all my life I have had a distrust of people who wear hats and cannot wear them myself. However, there are some who distrust people with beards, so that's me screwed.

It means you may fit the bill for a charitable hair sheering event in the near future. Anything for a good cause, right?

All true, the shears will be out shortly for sure, as the temps rise, the woolly hat gets harder to deal with!

I think its only fair I post my face up here.



No, the hair is not overgrown, it is a "classic". Much as a classic car can attract thousands, so can my hair attract thousands... of trained stylists to tame it.

At last, we see the mop! Classic indeed, I'd keep it!

The guy in the suit looks a bit like Tony Soprano. I always thought the Guardia Civil hats looked silly. The same goes for the French Foreign Leigon hats. Maybe I just don't like hats.
