The new hat, which is white, not pink
as it appears under the flash.
I had my hair cut by a new (to me) stylist yesterday.  She got enthusiastic and cut too much off the crown for my liking.  It isn’t really that bad; it will grow out nicely in a couple of days.  Also, it’s a great excuse to buy a new hat.

All my broad-brimmed, summer hats are in sad shape.  They should probably be destroyed—except for the one that I never wear because it doesn’t go with anything else I own, probably because it’s light blue and lacy and not my usual style.

Our quote for the day from William Makepeace Thackeray, (1811–1863),  Vanity Fair:

When Amelia stepped forward to salute him, which she always did with great trembling and timidity, he gave a surly grunt of recognition, and dropped the little hand out of his great hirsute paw without any attempt to hold it there.
