    Default Hats

    Why the hat band and head band? Any historical need? Seems like a neck tie.

    Let me see if I've got it, underarm sweat stains are OK. A head sweat stain is not?

    O.o

    What's wrong with underarm sweat stains?!!??!
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.

    Nothing...it's just head sweat runs in you eyes and burns.......usually when you have your hand full.

    You know, one of my first lessons in appreciating diversity came from my lack of appreciation of some of the "gaudy fads" of the Black community. My education started when I started developing friendships with some Black folks.

    Black guys wearing shower caps in public was the first and I thought it was downright ridiculous until I actually asked a friend why he did it and he explained that if Black people's hair dried out, it turned white. Suddenly it made sense.

    Which brings me to do-rags. I used to think they were absolutely one of the worst fashion statement I had ever seen until I got very tired of wiping sweat out of my eyes one hot, humid, Alabama summer hike and I took off my t-shirt, twisted it up part way, and tied it with the rest over my head and down the back of my neck. I never made fun of anyone wearing a do-rag again.
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.

    We call them.....take your pick....Do Doo Rag, Biker Helmet Liner, Skull Cap, head scarf, motorcycle Bandana, Turban, Alopecia Head Covering, welders cap, barcarva....many names and ways.

    Scull cap, or bikers bandana helps with a hard hat, for sweat and keep it on your head when working over head.....

    I hate to be picky and a spelling cop but sometimes a slight error makes a big difference. I'm sure you meant, "sweets in his hong".

    Aye, Hunter. I began associating with the bikers much later in life.

    Heh. Actually, I'm only an honorary biker. I had a Virago for about 2 months before I realized that it was too expensive for me to have both a motorcycle and a van, and I had to have something I could sleep in. I was one of the founding members of the Christian Motorcycle Association chapter for Montgomery, Prattville, and Selma in Alabama. I was one of three members I knew that were, in fact, not bikers.

    I've always figured there were two kinds of bikers in this world. Those that have gone down and those that are going to. I never wanted to be in either camp. Now a three wheeler could get me talkin'.
