My #1 modeling my Yoda Hat!

My #1 modeling my Yoda Hat!

Yoda is just over 2 feet.  I am almost 6 feet.  He also has some 850+ years on me, so I don’t really look much like the Master.  But just like him, I do make a mean rootleaf stew, I have rebellious Padowans that I am trying to guide into responsible Jedis, and I’d like to think that I am wise…ish.  So, this Yoda hat has become my favorite.  It is warm and cozy for cold Halloween nights; fun, convenient and out-of-the-way while dong M4P prep; and always an ice breaker when the kids have costumed events at school.  In geeky good fun, it all is!
