Another reason we wear caps might be the need to raise awareness about an issue that's important to us. Wearing a cap lets us get the message out about Alzheimer's research, our vegan lifestyle or just tell people yeah, I survived breast cancer.
For some folks it might be the humor value we get from our caps. There's nothing like a good laugh for lifting the spirits. Getting up in the morning and putting on a funny cap before we head out the door can make us smile every time we read the slogan and it can make other people smile too.
Or maybe we just want to keep our head warm! Whatever the reason, here are some great caps to feed the passion we all have for wearing them. Caps tell who we are, what we do and what we care about. They also make great gifts for friends.

Need to wash your caps? Here is the best article I've seen on how to do it. It comes from Cruftbox and you just have to check out his blog here for all kinds of funny thoughts - it's definitely worth a regular visit. but in the meantime, here is an excerpt on cap washing:
How to wash a baseball cap from the Cruft blog.
"....There are two basic concerns people have about washing baseball caps:
1) The shape of the cap and brim will be wrecked.
2) The cap itself will shrink or be damaged by washing.
Let's address concern number one. Most hats today use plastic inside to form the brim and not cardboard. The plastic can withstand a wash with no deformation.
Concern number two is a little more complicated. Some ball caps are made of wool. Wool can shrink in water and/or heat situations. Most people don't wear wool caps. Most caps today are cotton or polyester, both of which can stand up to a washing. Personally, I wear a wool cap. My brother has instructed me to only wear fitted wool caps. He says those kinds with the plastic snaps are for pansies. I guess the ones with the the leather or fabric straps straddle the cool/pansy line and are OK on occasion.
There are many inventions out there to help people wash their baseball caps. There are little plastic hat cages. There are chemical cleaners that look like underarm deodorant. There a suggestions to wash your cap in the dish washer. IMHO, these ideas are all whack.
Here are my guidelines for cap washing:
1) If the cap has been made in the last ten years, and it's made of polyester or cotton, simply toss it in to the clothes washer with the rest of your clothes. After the wash, take it out and let it air dry. Viola! A clean cap.
2) If you have concerns over the fragility of the baseball cap, get some Woolite, and wash the cap in the kitchen sink with lukewarm water. Don't soak the cap in the water, just use enough Woolite & water to get the grime off. Let it air dry and you are good to go.
If these too methods still seem to harsh to you, I suggest that you may not be the kind of person that should be wearing a baseball cap. Maybe you need one of those floppy beret things that art students wear in coffee houses.
Feel free not to take my advice and use one of the other methods, but don't come crying to me when the stupid plastic hat cage has melted in your dishwasher...."

Pink Ribbon Heart Butterfly Keychain by pinkribbonshirts
In October it seems we all remember someone we know who suffers or has suffered from breast cancer, and then we move right into the holiday season without a backward glance. I hope this year you will keep on remembering and not put away your pink just because you change the calendar from October to November. Breast Cancer awareness can be a year-round thing.

50th Wedding Anniversary T-shirt by 50thanniversarygifts
A couple of years ago my in-laws had their 50th Wedding Anniversary. By some standards it was a simple affair, just family and friends getting together for an evening of remembering and celebrating a very special marriage and the happiness that came from it.
But when that marriage produced nine children, 20 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, then it became something worth shouting about! I wish you could have seen all the excitement in getting ready for the big event. Anniversary presents were bought, a lovely anniversary cake was ordered and the church was decorated with flowers and all the trimmings for the big party to celebrate 50 years together. The highlight of the evening was the music, with my aunt singing the same song she sang at her sister's wedding reception 50 years before, and all nine children doing a performance of a historical song and skit they had put on when they were kids, for a PTA program their mom had "volunteered" them for. It was so funny! The night was a special one for my mother-in-law who had looked forward to it for years. I'm so glad she has those memories as she is now a widow.
So when anniversary time rolls around, get out and celebrate. Do it up big and party till the cows come home.

For religious friends, I try to find something extra special to reflect their beliefs for their family. What could be cuter than Noah's Ark? All those sweet animals marching two by two or tucked in together on the ark are just the thing for a new baby to wear. Here are some darling examples I found at Cowpie Creek:

Noah's Ark T-Shirt by CowPieCreek of Union Eight
Here's a really cute Noah's Ark poem for kids:
The day that all the world went dark,
We were safe inside the ark.
And when the land had turned to mud,
Noah saved us from the flood.
Because he'd done as he was told,
We were safe inside the hold.
He led us in just two by two,
Until the ark looked like a zoo.
And now good children everywhere,
We hope that you will always care
For all we creatures great and small,
That Noah saved to see you all.

When I was talking with my sister-in-law a few months ago, she told me my nephew had been married at Disneyland in a beautiful ceremony complete with Cinderella's coach and all the trimmings as only Disney could do. That got me to thinking... surely Disneyworld in Orlando must do weddings also.
