I was there when a Canadian colleague (bottom picture)
Hank first saw the “split knuckle” (as he calls the split-sleeve gown) robe — at an ordination in Massachusetts. (Wasn’t PeaceBang there, too?) We both thought it very natty.
If you’ve never met me in the flesh, you’ve got to accept that this thing is rather inbred.
(And now I want the John Knox cap. Bottom of the page.)
Now, as for the hat that Hank and Adam want — “you know those round flat hats that preachers always wear in cowboy movies and as soon as you see someone wearing it you know — ‘thatâ€™s the parson'” — well, I want one too. In what world I would wear such a thing I’m sure I don’t know, but if y’all get one, who am I not to get one?
Well, I’m still looking, but we’re talking about what “Father September” is wearing in the 2005 Calendario Romano, right?
