kidsmoke Posted June 1, 2022 Share Posted June 1, 2022 Wow, what a blur of a weekend! Moments are beginning to swim back in my memory now...little details forgotten in the rush of actually living it. Remembering sitting on the deck above Courtyard C, hanging on to one of the few shady tables on Sunday. Clamboring down the steps we saw 4 guys wearing origami hats made of the big fold-out Mass MoCA maps. We laughed in admiration! I hadleft my hat behind at my lodging when a clear day was predicted...it was scotchguarded against rain...but never had thought it would be hot enough to wish for a hat. So being right next to the museum lobby, I trundled inside and came back with a couple of the maps. My friend Carol & I unfolded them and tried to think how to create a hat. One table over, a stranger heard us and volunteered that she might know how. So she joined our table & went at her task. Soon, she had crafted 2 serviceable pointy-topped hats. My love of overpacking meant that I even had a pair of hair clips to fasten it securely! Rarely has anything in my wardrobe received so many compliments. I gave full credit to Sherri....my new friend. Funny how we make new friends. I wore it the rest of the day, even at the rail for Tweedy & friends, even after the shade had slid over us & it was no longer necessary. At that point it had become a party hat. Tell me about your memories! They drift away too fast. 4 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
