Anyone else have a lucky hat?

It's just an old black stocking cap that I've had, now, for years.
The weave is thick; it fits just right, and covers up my ears.
It says "Alaska Pipeline Project" on a yellow patch.
Although I've searched for ages, I can never find its match.

My husband's sister's second husband's brother bought the thing,
(A husband, Charlene later learned, who had the urge to "swing").
She got rid of the husband in a quickly-won divorce
And didn't want reminders, so I got the hat, of course.

It's not at all becoming, but it's comfortable and warm.
I've worn it out to milk the cows through many winter storms.
I've had it now through thick and thin... through skinny and through fat,
And I am quite attached to it. I really love that hat!

Spring arrives, and I put my beloved cap away.
Then fall approaches, and I've often felt a deep dismay
Not knowing just exactly where I put the thing last fall...
But knowing I MUST find it, or I can't go on at all!

It's funny how a silly cap would mean that much to me.
No other hat would feel the same, or have such history.
I can't explain my fondness for the hat, or tell you why:
I only hope it doesn't fall apart before I die.

I must-a had a lucky hat on yesterday. I was lucky I wasn't blown away in it.
We had some stiff winds here yesterday. That should result in some more dead trees down in hay fields and pastures. Pastures as soft as they are, the Cushman will be no help today. It'll be walk-see-inspection material packing day today.
Maybe I'll wear another lucky hat.
