As autumn gives way to winter and the temperatures begins their inexorable downward slide, it is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man who desires to keep his pate warm must be in want of an ushanka.
Wait--a what? An ushanka, of course! You know, those Russian hats with the flaps that can either be flipped up, pulled partway down to keep the back of the neck warm or pulled all the way down to keep both the back of the neck and ears warm? Yeah. Apparently, the proper name for them is "ushanka", which I just learned today. And being the generous sort that I am, I felt the need to share that with all of you, as well as this picture of my husband wearing one, topped with some sort of wildflower that I picked.
No need to thank me. The look on my husband's face when he realizes that not only did I pervert the opening line to Pride & Prejudice for my own use, but also posted a silly picture of him on the Internet will be thanks enough. But hey--he went out in public in that hat, and by the rules set forth by this blog, that makes this picture fair game.
