Stogie's New Fedora: A Must for Blogging and Playing Bass

Stogie's New Fedora (for Blogging)
Yesterday I completed a tax return for a long-time friend, Larry, but he left without signing one important document.  So I left the office and took the form to his house for him to sign -- I was determined to finish all paperwork that day and leave nothing to a new day.  When he invited me in, he showed me a brand new Stetson Fedora sitting on his table.

"Would you like to have it?" he asked.  I said YOU BET!!  I have been wanting a new fedora since my dog chewed up my last one (also a Stetson); however, a new Stetson costs upwards of $100 and I couldn't justify the expenditure in these hard times.  However, I have a large head (needed for all those brains) and I wear a 73/8  hat size.  I tried on the hat and it was a perfect fit!  Sure enough, the tag inside said it was a 73/8.

I think the gift was Larry's way of saying thanks for saving him quite a bit of money over the past few years.

Stogie's New Fedora (for Blues and Jazz)
Larry said "Don't say I never gave you anything," and I said THANKS and BYE and left before he came to his senses and changed his mind.

As Robert Stacy McCain or Da Techguy will tell you, a fedora is an absolute must for blogging; we are the new media, the new reporters and must wear a fedora.  Matt Drudge renewed this journalistic tradition when he opened the Drudge Report, and it is a good thing.  However, for me the fedora will do double duty, since fedoras are also popular with blues and jazz musicians.  All I have to do is flip up the front and the fedora converts from a journalistic theme to a jazz theme.  Am I cool or what?  Don't answer that.

You need to have it slightly more tilted when you blog - more noirish.

It's a sweet one.
