I'm not sure if it can be seen properly but the hat I'm wearing in the office pic is a bear hat and belonged to a friend. That day I was having a bad day in the office and my friend said quite nicely if I was going to act like bear with a sore head then I'd better wear his bear hat so I looked like one. Of course that made me laugh and feel a lot better so I wore the had and tried to pretend to be a bear going GRRRRR

Thanks for the tip to have a lookout for the little hippo in your photo Lai; I would never have spotted it!

That's gonna have me wearing glasses soon; "I'm sorry, but I can't see the hippo" lol! 

PPH, terrific shots of you, though you do look a little under the influence drunken in the last one Laughing I like the one before that also, where you look like you are going to do a little kangaroo hop (even though you said that it was meant as a bear) Very Happy 

Lai, if you can't get up the gumption to wear a beanie in public, then how shall you ever wear a onesie confused http://www.picgifs.c 

Maybe Doogsy doesn't have to join in...after all, we can do with having some modest people in the world Laughing 

You certainly wouldn't want too many Lion & Victoria wannabes! But hey, I don't only do serious shots. Here is me in anti-Victoria Beckham mode:

Post  Doogs on Tue Jul 30, 2013 12:15 am

I got a nudge from WS today about this thread . . . .  now I know why   - apologies for not catching up on it sooner Embarassed Embarassed 

I suppose the first thing I must say is  . . . .  where did you get that hat, where did you get that hat ????  Laughing   

What a fantastic selection of photos from everyone, they have really made me Very Happy this evening or should I now say this morning !!   I've had a quick scan of all the photos I have on my laptop and can safely say there is not one of me with a hat on No infact there's very little of me full stop, they are either of racehorses, jockeys (plenty of hats there !) or animals in the Mara, I'm not very keen on getting my photo taken No    So it looks like I will have to do a selfie if I have to submit one.  It won't be this morning as I'm heading to bed after this post, it won't be tomorrow as I'm working oh and then I'm working again straight after that and will get home about 12.45am by then it will be Sleep Sleep time . . . .  I will get round to it though, promise Embarassed 

LW you very much suit a hat so stop putting yourself down and saying you look silly ; Mr and Mrs S, you must have a secret stash of hats in the house, plenty there to choose from and why am I not surprised to see http://www.picgifs.c in one of them Wink  ; PPH another one with a great selection of hats, liked the one of you as a baby I love you and was that a rabbit one ??? ; GR this is definitely up your street, you love a pose in your hats, brilliant Very Happy and finally Lai, you have hats for all weathers, great selection and another one who suits a hat cheers 

Hats off to you all http://i73.servimg.c 

Apologies again all for being the party pooper
Crying or Very sad

Okay Doogs, we'll let you off as you are seriously busy working all those hours. Do a selfie, I had to, although I felt a real geek  doing it! You must have a hat somewhere, safari hat maybe?

Lai, in regards to onesie wearing, and Pete discovering that you've lost the plot: You've tricked him for far too long  

LW, terrific selfies again; the tongue always has a most smirk-inducing effect tongue Very Happy Though I must say that I noticed Nero in the background...clearly he was trying not to be noticed though. I suspect that you have an extra serious pet on your hands who wants no association with your childish shenanigans  

I don't think that anyone would ever call Doogsy a party pooper, so wash your mouth out young lady! And always remember, that as the young deductage goes;

Never give in to peer pressure

Doogs you are working far too hard my friend, I hope you are looking after yourself. A selfie can wait until you have time and of course only if you want to do one, its only a bit of fun, so only join in if your comfortable, must admit though I dislike my pic being taken but this had a different feel as I was taking the pics and was feeling a walley in my own home geek 

Good spot on Nero GR, I hadn't noticed he was there, maybe he was trying not to associate with me and who could blame him lol!

Lai I can assure you there is not a problem with finding a hat to wear in this house, I have quite a few to be honest - I tend to wear them to the racing in the winter when it's cold and wet, saves me having put up an umbrella - lazy or what !!!  

I'm in tomorrow night so will find something appropriate then Wink   As much as I dislike getting my picky taken I won't let the team down and will come up with the goods . . . .  soon !

LW, yes I am working a bit harder these days but I won't continue if it's going to affect my health.  My back has been giving me jip probably with having to stand in the pub but I went for the swim the other night and that definitely helped.  I have also sprained the ligaments in my knee  after a kick about with a football at a BBQ the other week Embarassed  so need to watch that . . .  I will monitor the situation

Post  Safariman on Thu Aug 01, 2013 2:34 pm

As the sun was shining and I needed to were a hat when I was having my lunch  in the garden I decided it was the ideal time to venture into the WAA world of "selfie" sun hat pics. It is a very strange pastime trying to take a photo of oneself and it is not very high on my things to do before you die list!! The hat is my trusty "Tilley" sunhat that has travelled all over Africa with me and the hat band is a traditional handmade Maasai bead band, given to me by my Maasai friend and guide Bernard. It was made by his mother and he also presented me with a beautiful traditional Maasai bead necklace again made by his mother and which he was wearing at the time!!
I think "onsies" are a step too far for me in spite of the very cold winters we have had recently, by the way whatever happened to the "his" and "hers" shell suit!!!!!!

Oh my goodness on 3 accounts Safariman, 1, it's fantastic you have posted a great pic and I am loving the hat and especially the Maasai band, it's lovely. 2, his and hers shell suits affraid  OMG I remember them and you weren't cool unless you had one ...........whatever did happen to them? 3, its great to put a face to the name.

I am so not one who loves her photo being taken and it would not have been on my bucket list of things to do before I die, but weirdly I enjoyed the fun of it and am so pleased others have joined in.........however, like you I will not be posting pics of me in a onsie........dont poses one No 

Looking forward to seeing your selfie Doogs bounce please do take care, especially that back of yours, you dont want to aggravate your old injury, backs are important, so take it easy my friend.

ROFL  Whatever happened to Shell Suits, that was a blast from the past, something I remember, but never wore. I'm with you on the Onsie Safariman, be like wearing an oversized Baby Grow What a Face Mind you having said that I can see the appeal for GR lol! Love the Tilley, and thats a fantastic band, it must bring back many happy memories wearing it. Lai, and her Husband Pete have Maasai names given to them when they got married in the Mara, cant remember what they are now. Welcome to the world of selfies, as LW says great to put a face to the name

http://i73.servimg.c for joining in Safariman, that's really put the pressure on me to get something on here affraid  Love your trusty old Safari Hat and I certainly recognise that Maasai Bead Band from my time out in the Mara visiting a local village Cool 

Thanks LW for your kind and wise words, I will take it easy, promise.

WS Lai was given the Maasai name Nashipai but I can't remember what Pete's was scratch . . . I'm sure Lai will put us right tomorrow

Great photo Safariman, I love the Maasai hat band, very beautiful, we also have Tilley hats for when the African sun gets just too hot!

I so agree about taking selfies but as Littlewid was brave enough to start this thread, and GR has no shame and is always taking selfies Laughing  it's great that everyone is joining in, even if we are feeling a little self conscious!

I never had a shell suit, but I do remember them. I am not sure I will ever own a onesie although they do make me laugh and no doubt keep you snug as a bug in the cold winter months.

http://i73.servimg.c  Doogs and well remembered my Maasai name is Nashipai which translates as the one who always smiles. Pete's maasai name is Saitoti and embarrassing at this very moment I can't remember the translation! I have it written down at home. I was given 2 beautiful necklaces and Pete was given a lovely wooden club.

I'll post some pics later.

"feeling a little self conscious" - confused Could someone please explain this term to me as I don't understand Razz 

To take from WS, perhaps onesies could be termed Big Baby Suits Very Happy 

Great to see you getting in on the act Safariman, and quite a nice snap for a selfie novice  

Take it easy Doogs; doesn't sound good about your back and knee No 

GR tongue 

P.S. I understand that a onesie might be a step too far Safariman, but we'll take it back a notch, and try to get you into a beanie Very Happy

Well you've got to trick people into giving them a false sense of security; I of course will still eventually get Safariman into that onesie one day; the beanie is more or less to create a diversion Razz 

It's like with women. "I'm just taking you to first base. Now how about second? Third sounds alright hey?"

And so forth  

Not that I am particularly good at baseball ROFL

They had a sale at the New Factory Shop so I thought I'd try a Beanie on, but I think it may be a bit small ?
