What time is it? It's hat time, of course. Spring is in full swing, the weather is getting warmer, and the sun's rays are definitely strengthening. When I begin to feel like a vampire, constantly shrinking away from the glory of sunlight, I know it's time to pull out my hat collection.
Of course I wear hats in winter too. I almost always have a wool beret on my head during the chilly months. And when I want to feel a little dressier, I pull out my gangster hat.
But, when I consider the prospects of skin cancer, and I remember my battle with actinic keratosis over the past year, I know that the only thing that will do is my stack of big floppy hats.
