Tom's yearly hat fiasco.

Tom needed a hat to cover his balding skull now that the sun is shining in all its glory. I think he meant to copy Sam's British Pub-style hat, but he missed the mark slightly and instead bought a J.Lo hat. Or a Beyonce hat. Or Thomas the Train. Or one of those boys from newsies. It's surprising what a difference a couple of inches makes.

There is no photo. He refuses to be photographed. And I think he will not wear that hat again. It will go the way of the of the Jonas Brothers cap of last summer

Indeed. One hat humiliation per year is quite enough. I don't get it. What's wrong with the Jonas Brothers? What's wrong with an extra inch of height on my hat? But it's gone. Auf Wiedersehen, lieber Hut.

Oh, I want to see Tom channeling Beyonce. And singing "Put a Ring on It," too.

I MISS you guys.

I love that it seems as though Tom first posted his comment and then realized the computer was still logged in as Louise.

I also love it that this is the second difficulty in procuring a hat. Makes me smile.

I'm so happy to find that you have a blog. I have been thinking about you all week. (And no, you don't know me from Eve.)

Here's how it started. Some friends of mine started talking about writing in their journals -- actually, about how they never write in them. I piped in with my typical words of wisdom: "Never, ever try to play catch up, or you'll never start writing," and "Just set the timer for five minutes and write about whatever you're thinking about."

I attributed that advice to you, from a lecture you gave at BYU 10 years ago, and my friend (the daughter-in-law of Dierdre Paulsen, whom I think you know) recognized your name and loaned me your book, "Thoughts of a Grasshopper." There, on page 85 was that very lecture -- the one I've used as the basis of more Relief Society and Young Women lessons than I can count.

So thanks for the great advice and great example. Your lecture was one of the most memorable I attended at BYU, and it has changed the way I record my life. Loved the book, by the way. I've ordered a copy for myself, so I can quote you directly now.
