Heartbroken. Lost my waxed cotton hat!

Last weekend on Sunday it blew off my head and into the Blackwater River. All attempts at rescue failed and we watched in helpless agony as it slipped below the waves along with a pair of cheap CVS sunglasses. Now it's home for some crab no doubt.

No. It became a PITA and I lost money so I wasn't motivated. I'll redo the math and see if I can dig my "round 2" list up. They are such stellar hats.
