Moonstruck DennisG, clearly getting a little cabin feverish, sent the following:

Shortly after viewing that item of sartorial splendor, I happened to do a brief check-in on a few of my favorite Midwest blogs to see how deep the deepfreeze is (you can call it schadenfreude, I prefer to think of it as "adjusting my perspective"). One of those which I visit is Gitchee Gumee Guy's The Lake is the Boss, and what should I find there but...well, DaveO's own description follows (and it's a link, too, so you can check it out for yourself):

Anybody else want to chime in here?
Anybody got any article of foul-weather gear they'd like to put in the contest?
Me? Well, I have this hat. It's a great hat, at least when you're the one standing under it. Not so hot when you are with the wearer & forced to look at the thing! It's warm & fuzzy, but it does come with the slight drawback of making people deny that they know me.
