Project Cubbins: Hat Eighty-Six - Tiny Coonskin Cap Edition

Day Eighty-Six / Hat Eighty-Six: Handcrafted real leather and fur coonskin cap bottle topper purchased at Fess Parker Winery and Vineyard by my brother Al to top the bottle of Big Easy he purchased during our "Sideways" wine tasting excursion.

Fess Parker, you may (or may not) remember, famously sported a coonskin cap in his role as Davy Crockett, and these little trinkets are intended to be worn by wine bottles -- not 47-year-old men standing in gas station parking lots taking selfies in the middle of a weekday afternoon.

It should be noted for the record that the backdrop is the 76 station just off Chesebro Road in Agoura Hills. On our way north on the 101 yesterday, my brother saw the exit sign and said: "Cheese, bro!" Exactly the same way I did the very first time I saw the sign.

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction, bro.
