Admittedly, we have a lot of the same here in Texas...that or side ways...even in West Texas far away from metro cities.

Today while having a delicious late lunch at Brandon's Diner in Fontana, I wore my red ball cap with the gold embroidered "THE BEST MARINE IS A SUBMARINE" that was thoughtfully given to me by a former US Government issue type 1 each submariner. The only time I uncover is when I'm at a fancy do or family sit-down meal in the dining room.

I WILL walk into your house wearing my cover and you WILL shut your yap about it.

Now, that line has been blurred, more and more men are unknowingly carrying on the Spanish tradition by not removing their hats indoors, generally without any idea they are following Spanish tradition, not English.

And for some, they would throw their hats away if they knew they were doing what "them Mexicans" do.
Well the railroads also played quite a role in the history of the West and it was long (and still is) a railroad rule that a conductor should remove his hat while walking through the dining car. Granted railroading did start with the British.

I don't have a house ... and the overhead in my van is so low your hat will scrape ... so no fun for you over here even though my digs are perfect for a fancy do ...

Fonspunky is at it again.

For Highlite:

If I put my sombrero and charro suit on that I used to don for the cinco de mayo parades back in the 1980's I would have to take my hat off to get through the damn door.
All the Latino's I know in my family even those from the old country always take their hats off.

Cinco De Mayo ain't much of a Mexican holiday, where did the gringos throw a Cinco De Mayo parade?

Now, BDD did I say it was a Mexican tradition?
