Carrot top Pop

$1.00 at the H.E.B. Plus. Low cost entry into the cult of the whiny orange... sans logo.

UPDATE: I gave this cap to a WWII vet from south-central Texas, trapped in Oklahoma, as a 'stealth' way to support the whiny orange.

Middle-aged Bimbo.

While packing my curio cabinet, I found this old Mrs. Baird's Bread paper hat. The plant employees wore these, as did cafe and cafeteria cooks. I got this one either on a tour of the Mrs. Baird's Bakery on Mockingbird Lane in Dallas, or possibly at the State Fair of Texas. That plant is being bull-dozed as I pack, and Mrs. Baird's is now owned by Panificación Bimbo, S.A. de Mexico

Even though we are both out of business now (Mrs. Baird and myself), I was surprised to discover the hat was adjustable to fit my 7-5/8th head. Maybe I can still be adjustable too.
