To The Manner Born is one of our favourite blogs. Mister Toad, the chap who writes it – or perhaps curates would be a better word – has also been known to leave a comment or two here at The Hornet from time-to-time.
As he is a loyal Horneteers, we’d like to point the rest of you in the direction of his blog. A jolly good read, make sure to bookmark it.
It was tough to pick just one post to get you started, but we were very fond of this recent tale about the passing of a “good and faithful servant”: Mr Toad’s Brooks Brothers summer hat may well have seen its last summer.

And while we are fully aware that Mr Toad makes mention of Hornets in his post, this was not the reason why we selected this piece as our favourite. We fell for this particular piece of writing because of the sentiment, the poetry of its opening line:
“I have been a hat wearer my entire life…”
Music to our ears.
