Still raining

Still having road work done in Delmar, holding up traffic

The TGIF photo Charlie C's in Crisfield

In reading the Guide I see another 53 people filed for a application to carry a concealed weapon in Sussex county Delaware

Also there will be a gun show at the Nur Temple south of Wilmington on May 21 and May 22.

Like him or hate him he has increased TV news ratings by about 200%

Somethings look so good you can just taste them

and on May 7th, the Flagship in Seaford will be auctioned off at 12 Pm rain or shine.  3 Seasons Auction is handling the sale.

Government tells you what you can and can not do,  California has passed legislation raising its smoking age from 18 to 21 for most of its citizens.  This shit drives me up the wall, I personally don't think there should be any age limit on smoking or alcohol or gaming but the max I would go would be 18 years old and that is based on the draft age for the military.  If you can be drafted you are an adult and deserve to be treated as an adult.

In todays world apparently the baseball hat is the most common male hat worn.  Way back when I was a child, baseball hats were worn by children.  A hat often seen worn by men in that time period was the peaked or visor hat or chauffer hat.  No doubt a carry over from WW2 when men wore that type of hat while in uniform and it just became something of a standard after WW2 for men who were in some service related industries; mainly transportation.  Today it is still used by the military and police but generally has gone away as far as being frequently seen in the general populous.

The police still wear this type of hat altho currently it is in declining favor.

but in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s it was standard for brand name service stations attendants

and many truck drivers also wore the hat

bus drivers and baggage porters wore it

 and of course chauffeurs

ice cream sales people

milk men delivery people

Coca cola delivery people

it was a standard biker cap of the time
and a visit to the seashore and boating required the Captains cap
