It was, in his defense, a very bad day for everybody.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    OSHA widely blamed.

    So. You are getting a hard hat for your not-hard heat, right, preferably one that will also shade you from the glowing orb of pain, if not actually protect you from flying blocks of stone. Right?

    If I have had to endure chainsaw chaps, long-sleeve shirts, a hard hat, ear coverings and eye protection in the middle of summer in steambath Florida, you should at least have a hard hat.

    Maybe even a Pith Helmet? Give you an excuse to play with a Martini-Henry, eh, old boy?

    “Not-hard Head” not “Not-hard heat.”

    Sometimes I amaze myself by my stupidity.

    I’m actually thinking pith helmet at the moment, though that’s a sentence I never expected to utter. Not full Roark’s Drift, but maybe one with a round brim.

  5. Robert says:

    Joel, you would rock a proper pith helmet! I usta wear one with a bandana neck protector while doing yard work. Practical and stylish.

  6. Kentucky says:

    Most farm stores sell plain ol’ straw “farmer hats” that are lightweight and have enough brim to keep your gourd/neck in the shade, mostly. You can tuck a bandanna under the band in the back if you want more protection.

    If you want a really spiffy one, hit the Amish store.

    Assuming the “hard” part is no longer in play.

To the stake with the heretic!
