Went to my local store yesterday. I think it is owned by a brother and sister, who are called Al and Di but I might be wrong? I was hoping it was the final round of Xmas shopping? They have at times all sorts of stuff on short offers and I wobble up and down thinking of the many uses I will never probably use some of the kit for, but would still like to fill my shed with. But my voice of reason (Wife) very often puts it back on the shelf for me
Well hidden away was a row of boxes with a group of pictures which really took my eye. It was a multi use hat in sensible colours (I am getting old) All for £4.99. I am not kidding you, had to have it and take it home! Even the voice of reason could see it being a benefit.
Back home shopping dispatched to the correct shelves etc. Time to open my new fashion accessory. I put it right over the head and it was a scarf and very warm too, slide it up over the mouth and ears and I have the face mask I need for the biting wind and still be able to breath. No stopping me now pull the back over the head and I have a balaclava! Will not say what my wife said I looked like at at point, Tighten the toggles and was ready for a bank job! Pull up a bit more it was a blind fold not sure what use that has? Maybe for the bank job? Mind running riot with what I could get this to do, I could see it on BatMan's utility belt? I then tried the top of the head styles and I need some practice on them it states it can look like a Beany hat? I looked like I had a floppy felt policeman's hat on. Undeterred I pulled it up and about and I had a chefs hat! a bit more fiddling and I was an extra for Les Miserable, up and swept back I was in the foreign legion.
Getting my head back to reality I find it can even be used as a BAG (shown on the box) all that is needed is the toggles tightened and goods fed into the neck! Now I need another to keep me warm?
So I have now found a way to beat the Wind (Weather) and found ways of keeping my brain active designing uses other than those it was designed for.
I enjoyed the result of my shopping trip this time.
