No, this isn't about the thing on the front of your car that covers the engine.

And it's not regarding those cool guys that wore leather jackets, engineer boots and DAs back in the 50s and 60s.  Although I knew a few and they were cool. (if you don't know what a DA is - ask an old person)

Nope.  Today I'm talkin' about the hoods that are attached to jackets, coats and sweatshirts.

I have always found them annoying unless they could be removed.  I'm the one that asks for the hoodless sweatshirt.  What would I use a hood for anyway?

Well, I've changed my tune - dramatically.  I bought a nice winter jacket from LLBean and it has a hood.  It can't be removed.  It's lined and it blocks the hell out of the wind.

I'm in love.  And warm.  Yea, me!


  1. Glad you found one with a hood that fit. I always find them that two heads could fit in! LOL

    1. I used it for the first time yesterday and was mighty glad I had it. Although I had to hang onto it when walking into the wind so it wouldn't blow off. It's not that snug but fits pretty darned good.
