My Hat Collection

A re-post of a poem we posted last year, when we had just started and no one was following us. Requested by the ever supportive John Malone.

My Hat Collection

Picking hats for my collection
My choice has been meticulous
I only wear them one at once
Or I would look ridiculous.
I'll start of with my baseball caps
I've collected five of these
Two were from sunny Australia
Where shade can hit forty degrees.

There's a cap from Canada's Bamf
Embroidered with proud Maple Leaf
Whilst one from our amis in France
Has the Eiffel Tower motif.
My golfing favourite was purchased
At the British Open event
Where Darren Clarke beat all the others
In sunshine, at Sandwich, in Kent.

So cheap is an old knotted hanky
It's one that I almost forgot
The sun can not get at my head
If it's cloudy, I fill it with snot.
A real Aussie bush hat from Perth
Is just the sartorial ticket
And a foldable one from Tasmania
Perfect for watching the cricket.

My fedora from M and S
I sport with an elegant style
And wearing my chequered flat cap
I look like the Duke of Argyle.
In winter the ear flaps come down
When cold snow and hail starts to fall
But my scary old balaclava
I find is the warmest of all.

Hobbo Award


Honourable Order of Best Blog Owners

This is the award which I launched last month. It goes to the owner of the blog who has kept me amused and entertained over the previous few weeks. It doesn’t involve the winner in doing anything, or answering daft questions. It’s just my way of saying a little thank you for putting a smile on my face, and keeping your blog interesting.

The winner of the inaugural award was Mr Bump. This month, the winner is spwilcen. Visit their blog at

He claims to be a rambling old man (who isn’t), but his posts will amuse you.


Poet Don

Poet Don
There's a poet, Don, who lives in Oz
Who writes a little blog
Which often stars his cat
And occasionally his dog.

His poetry is funny
His wit it bewitches
And some of his comments
Will leave you in stitches.

He should have more follows
But he's been overlooked
So give Don a try
And I bet you'll be hooked.

Poet Don lives in Australia, and publishes three or four short posts every day. He's one of the first bloggers I started following on a regular basis because some of his stuff is really funny. I think he should have a lot more followers. Please give him a try and see if you agree.  The link is;

The daftness continues on hobbos poems with my hat collection.

Today’s poem is a naughty limerick by Hobbo, called ‘Fishing’. You’ll find it in the Saucy Corner.

If you don’t like the rude stuff, check out the monologue section. Remember ‘Albert and the lion’ written by Marriott Edgar, and performed by the great Stanley Holloway. These poems are a tribute to him. ‘Where there’s a will.’ is a good one to start with.
