Cliff Wiggs, one of the Searcy Sleuths who loves and remembers the old Searcy AR when it was small and everyone knew everyone, has sent us this old picture of his dad. He says that blog that I did of "Cowboy? Railroad man? Cowpoke?" made him think of this picture of his dad taken when his dad was a young man.
He said his dad and almost all men of that day and time wore a hat. His dad wore a hat all the time when he was out until his death in 1981. His dad was born in 1901. He was quite handsome, too, as this picture shows. He looks so slim and relaxed in his overalls leaning against the fence. And we have the same question again.....what's he doing with his hands?
I don't know how you feel but I think that hats make men (or women) much more handsome that the caps that are the popular head cover of today.
Thanks for sharing, Cliff!
