'Tis aboot tim somebody rode a pom aboot the love-hat relationship--long overdo.  Hats are, aft her awl, only hare deep, particularly the warm winter bunny fer sure variety complete with flap jacks.  I squeak as one hoo stands under many hats--as amen hoo under stands.  4X ample (I gots a big nugget), I developed a crush on a black hat just t'other day.  In my defense, 'twas a crushable hat.
