As one of my friends has said, "It was hotter than forty hells" that week. Here is a picture of the temperature from my phone one day when we were building a fence for someone. Yes! It say it feels like 110 degrees.
Some of the guys and I took a Walmart trip to get some supplies and I found this hat to not only keep the sweat out of my eyes but also provide a little shade for my face. It didn't hurt that it had a huge firebird on the front of it!
Now, this hat has primarily become my "work" hat! Whether it be the gym or in the yard, if I'm wearing it, I am working!
When I look at this hat, I think of that week in Richmond and remember fondly all those I served with. They are all out of college now and living their own lives which makes me very happy. I am grateful that God gave me an my friends a week to remember forever. So that's the story behind the hat.
