You beat me to it. I was going to say that.tryalot said:Wasn't it Alice in Wonderland? The Mad Hatters tea party.
Hatters back then used a substance - mercury I think - when processing hats, it poisoned them and affected their behaviour, hence "Mad Hatter"
Yes I am, but that group is slowly going on to other things. I have lots of red hats and purple clothes and no place to go. No problem, seems I like to stay home most of the time and knit, not the party girl anymore. My son put a sticker on my bumper about being a party goer, I put one also, about me being a gun carrying Patroit. loopingropejgarrett28 said:Loopingrope you have a lovely hat !
