Lost but not found

A few days ago, someone lost a nice hat at the bottom of our driveway. It’s in great shape, and it’s unclear exactly how it got there. Did it blow off someone’s head as they drove down the highway in a convertible? Did someone drop it out their car window as they sped past at 60mph? Did a bear eat the owner and just leave the hat?

We brushed it off and set it on our mailbox, where it’s clearly visible to anyone driving past. We left it there for a few days, but no one’s taken it. So Pepper has decided to claim it for her own.

“It’s adjustable!” she said with glee just now. So she cinched it down for her noggin, and maybe she’ll wear it on our next hike.
