Ive had a cheap cotton floppy thing since 1988,still going strong.Makes a great bucket for pouring water over ones head on those hot,hot days.I still remember being in a group climbing a waterfall in Thailand when everyone used it for cooling down,ah memories.Came from Field and Trek when they were great, priced under £2.
I really cant imagine paying (t)illy prices for a sunhat but then many folk are so label conscious these days.
Good luck with that,Ive been married to a B.P.disorder lady for nearly 20 years.I could write a book on the mad things she does when manic and another on the times Ive taken her to hospitals or rung ambulances when depressed..No sense of danger or consequences.
I fell into property rentals when the girlfriend left in 1994 leaving me with a 4 bed house i couldnt afford,let the rooms and had so many people apply after a while i bought another house,and another and another...so work very little now.
My best mate has worked many times in famine relief in various parts of Africa and now with the u.n in disaster relief management.given my time again i would like to help people less fortunate than myself.
