    Not sure where this post belongs.
    Friday after work, a hard, hot and frustrating day. I walked out to look at my hives. Work uniform, steel toed boots and my lucky hat. My lucky hat is an unwashed ball cap and has developed a shine, that most people would walk around, rather than step over. 6 feet from my hives, one of the girls flew in under the bill of my hat. I snatched my cap off and watched her fly around the inside. She finally exited and I pulled my cap back on. The flip of the cap or something set her off and .... bang on the back of the neck. Looked around a bit, no yellow jackets, no birds and no skunk sign. PMS?[​IMG]
    Saturday. Clean work uniform, same boots and same HAT. Walked up to the hive and one of the girls flew in under the bill of my hat and ouch!
    Time for a new hat?[​IMG]

    Your hat sounds vile, as if it might be blue with a lion on it or something like that. I would burn it immediately, then purchase a cheddar cheese coloured hat with a big "G" in the front.

    Well, maybe you can keep the hat and change the name to the "unlucky hat". :wink:

    After four years of keeping bees and careful reading of your post, I believe it's a hair cut.:lol:

    ray.....
    PMS????!!!!! what does pms have to do with a dirty hat and a bee sting? okay, nevermind......that's a minefield......
    :lol:
    serious? you say, clean work uniform, same boots and an UNWASHED BASEBALL CAP????? ooohh, how long that cap been unwashed......oh let me guess since the day you bought it?!....:lol:

    what chris said was pretty dang funny:
    "Your hat sounds vile, as if it might be blue with a lion on it or something like that. I would burn it immediately, then purchase a cheddar cheese coloured hat with a big "G" in the front."

    but then i am kinda leaning towards what perry and marbees said, something under the hat and a hair cut?........:lol:
    and i am thinkin' the advice from these two guys is FROM EXPERIENCE......:lol:

    I believe he meant PNS- say it quickly- which accounts for an attachment to a hat that most likely needed to be trashed YEARS ago! However, dissing females AND short people ( 5'4"seems tall to me)is pretty risky.

    I thought everyone would enjoy this post.
    I washed a ball cap once and it split in three places, when I put it on.
    That proves that washing is bad for ball caps! [​IMG]

    Thanks, PerryBee; I resemble that remark.

    I keep forgetting; they allow[​IMG] 'Cheeseheads' on this forum.

    ​Oh yea: I love this forum!!![​IMG]

    i enjoyed your thread ray, seems guys are way attached to their baseball caps for some reason........ hmmm....... a very short story of an unwashed, well worn and ragged twinkies baseball cap worn to a prominent wedding......or should i say attempt at wearing that ragged, smelly thing, and the wife said you wear that cap, and divorce is imminent......:lol:
    wearing your favorite ball cap is alright less you pi$$ your bees off.....hmmm worse yet your wife.......:lol:

    chris, you will need to reply to the cheesehead comment.....i am just a transplant, but ray......don't pick on the brewers otherwise i will get cranky.....don't care how bad they are doing.....:lol:

    If I read correctly, it split when you put it on---not when you washed it.
    Ray, to me it sounds like you have a problem of getting a swollen head. :rolling:
