“Some people’s heads are like their hats; it appears that just like hanging their hats they hang their heads somewhere and walk without them!” ― Mehmet Murat-ildan
This weekend over on partner Gerry and my site Weekly Prompts the weekend challenge is ‘HATS‘
Many of you are aware that a couple of days ago I messed up due to my untimely publication of Nan’s Farm weekend post, and because of the content, the error precipitated the publication of our Weekly Prompts colour challenge.
So, disliking the idea of not having a Saturday challenge, we have published the challenge that was planned for next weekend.
In the UK a farmer is someone who farms crops, animals, or both. Therefore, when I first heard someone from America saying their other half was a cowboy, I assumed he must have an acting role in a modern Western film, you know, Cowboys and Indians!
How was I to know that over the pond, the term ‘Cowboy’ is used to describe someone who actually does farm cattle. In the old Wild West films everyone seemed to be a cowboy even when there were no cattle involved.
That got me thinking, why do some men wear cowboy hats if they don’t work with cattle? Is it because they live in an area where cows are farmed, or is it to protect them from the sun? Then again, baseball caps are worn globally by both men and women, but they never play baseball! Funny old world isn’t it? Simpsons – The Texan Millionaire
I was curious to know what Trump would look like wearing a cowboy hat, and then I found a YouTube clip.
Judging from Trump’s remarks at end of the short video, he had no intention of wearing the hat again, it seems cowboying is beneath him, though I don’t doubt for a moment that he would enjoy playing around with a couple of old Smith and Wessons, as the baddie of course!
The cowboy hat looks a sight better on him than those dreadful red caps he sometimes wears, he could be the pizza guy, out to earn a crust to supplement his old-age pension!
Ugly old git isn’t he?
