Now I'm very big I'm a big important man and the only thing that's different is underneath my hat

My sister is visiting Flaming Gorge this weekend. Yesterday she updated her facebook status to say that she was about to walk to the store in town. I called her immediately upon reading that to see if she'd already gone. She said she was on her way right then, so I asked if she could look for a hat for me while she was there. I'd purchased my favorite hat at that store a few years ago, but lost it on my first trip to Joshua Tree (when I went to play ice cream man for a few days). My best guess is that it was accidentally kicked out of the vehicle in the parking lot at the music festival, but I never was able to find it, not even at the lost and found.

Losing the hat wasn't that big of a deal at the time because I figured I'd make it back to purchase a new one at some point. However, I haven't been able to visit Flaming Gorge in about two years. Now that I seem to keep applying for jobs that are further and further away, the likelihood that I'll make it back anytime soon is decreasing. I wish I had more time and money, but I don't.

My sister said she'd look around. Then she asked me to email a picture of me wearing the hat. That way she'd get it on her blackberry, and that would make it easier for her to see if she could find the right one.

I emailed her a picture. She found the hat and sent me a text with a picture of it just to make sure:



"Booyah - Who's your favorite sister?"

Looks like she is. The other three have to step it up a bit if they hope to take her crown away.

Pretty nice hat - you must be pretty happy to get another one.

Hey that is a great hat! Is that the only place they sell it?

Anonymous, I am lucky.

Lindsay-Weaver, you're only saying that because you're hurt ;-)

Anonymous, of course I am. Like anyone else even comes close. It's the same reason nobody else gets their own pie at Thanksgiving.

Dee Ice, it was the highlight of an otherwise crappy day.

Nene, it's the only place I've seen one, and the Lodge doesn't have an online store. I suppose I could've called, but then I probably would've ended up with one with their logo on it, which I didn't want.
