    the brighter the light, the bigger the hat needed;

    I bought a hat at the Calgary Stampede that I was very fond of. Excellent eye-shading properties on the bike. Only blew off every 10 km or so.

    @iwrats i'll pass on the 'tache

    but everything else, yeeehaaaaa

    i think there should be a resurgence in the cowboy "look" in scotland
    when i say resurgance, perhaps i'm assuming there once was one.... ? :-/

    Years ago there was a wee old guy who wandered around Leith dressed as a cowboy/sheriff.

    It became a minor tradition in one office I worked in to grow the Lemmy 'tache and sideburns combo if you handed in your resignation. I quite liked it - certainly an ice breaker in the pub.

    There was an affable adult with learning difficulties used to wander round madame IWRATS' mum's local town wearing a cowboy outfit complete with six-guns but after the terrorist stuff in France they made him stop in case he was shot dead which is sad on so many levels.

    How many years are we talking about? Not that long since I've seen someone wandering around Newington dressed similarly.

  14. @wingpig 'Cowboy Joe' - a true local character. Even when his 'guns' were confiscated by the police in case anyone confused them for the real thing, he continued by using the triggers from household cleaning spray bottles.

    Wait - did you grow it AFTER resigning but before actually leaving so people would know you were marking time? Or did you start growing it beforehand, thus tipping your hand?

    (& what was the equivalent if you didn't have mustache-growing powers? Or was it one of those sorts of workplaces where everyone can do facial hair?)

    Ummm...I started before resigning in an attempt to get them to make me an offer. Most folks just did it for the contractual month.

    I'm not sure what the women did. Possibly just got on with work?

    ...and did it WORK?

    (Once again I'm going to express a wish for photographic evidence.)

    Nah, they knew I'd go anyway. Not sure if I have the Lemmy on film, certainly do have the subsequent Tennessee Waterfall somewhere.

    I loved Cowboy Joe. He used to just about crack up laughing if you fired your fingers back at him or feigned a bullet injury. :)
