Remember this picture?
This is Tom (aka Mon@arch) showing off the little jar of grape jelly I sent him last week (did you notice his hat?) Being a truly grateful person, he posted that very nice entry on his blog and in his e-mail thank you, mentioned that he was going to send me something in return. "Really, Tom you don't have to do that," was my response. To which he replied, "it's not that big of a deal," along with this statement, "It's nothing special and just think of it as you being one of the team! BTW: Young Naturalist J did the logo design." So now, I'm really wondering what will arrive in my mailbox this week.
Today, when we got home, my Spousal Unit handed me the little corrugated box from our mailbox and here's what was inside:
Now how cool is that? How did Mon@arch know I like caps? And that I needed a special cap for birdwatching trips? Thanks Tom, I love it!
I have a small cap collection--special caps that I've received as gifts, collected from my travels or have a special significance (like my blood donor cap which bears my "gallons donated" pins). There are summer caps, winter caps, hunting caps, and grubby, sweat-stained everyday caps (not pictured!)
I almost always wear a cap anywhere I go on the weekend--eliminates the need to do anything with my hair! But if anyone were to ask, I would always say it was for sun protection.
