All around my Hat . . .

I found out something great today.
If you stick a flower in your hat, people smile at you.
Some will even stop and chat awhile

If that sounds like a completely random statement, it isn't really.
If you'd like to see what led up to this, read here -

I didn't do the flower-in-hat thing to get the smiles.
I did it because its a beautiful day; I was going a-walking again (same route); and the flower was there, begging to be plucked from its place of obscurity and displayed.
And lo and behold, every shape, size, colour and age of people passing, smiled at me as I swung along humming "All around my hat, I will wear a green ri-i-bbon"
(Well, not quite accurate, but close)

You know what else that flower-in-hat did?
Made me feel different -
Young, carefree, happy, free -

So, maybe its worth a try for anyone feeling heavy-laden
Cheap at zero cost
Its possible the pharmaceutical companies might find themselves in trouble . . .

Doesn't that prove that it's not always the big, earth-shattering things that bring joy and smiles to our days, often it's the little things :-) Love this post!
