No whining

Absence of hats

Until recently, I owned two waterproof hats.  This was a good thing, as I definitely have a waterproof hat kind of life. I don't know what happened to one of the hats, but I do know that my Drizabone hat took a liking to Iceland and decided to stay there.

Today I went to Tavistock to buy a new hat.  The Pannier market waterproof clothing stall had nothing waterproof in my size.  The farm supply shop, ditto.  The hiking shop had a £25 folding waterproof hat that fit, but that I didn't like. Devon Hatters was closed.

I really would have thought that if there was one item you could reliably buy in a town on the edge of Dartmoor with astonishingly high average rainfall, it would be a waterproof hat.  I think Tavistock is still in 'late summer' mode...


Adventure in pictures...

I'm trying to do more painting and drawing at the moment on the grounds that if practice doesn't make perfect, it might at least improve matters somewhat. So I decided to try to document a recent roleplaying campaign in pictures. Do feel free to try to deduce the plot...
