Master Po Wear Many Hats

Master Po Wear Many Hats  11/14/13

Windy and cold morning on Temple grounds.  Master Po grab black toboggan hat in garage and put on head.  He listen to weather forecast and remember day will warm up and get sunny later.  So he contemplate: Should he wear baseball cap instead?  He not able to make up mind right away, so he grab both hats.  Hands are full of other items too. (Very integral part of story) Master Po hate to make multiple trips from garage to Temple Jeep because knees no longer function well with making needless trips.

He carry arm load of items and place them in Jeep. He then go to kennel to let out honorable dog Coco cause she ride with Master Po on many trips.  He standing in yard waiting for Coco to do business carrying shovel and rake (to keep Temple area clean).

Visitors to neighborhood drive by slowly around cul-de-sac and Master Po, always want to be friendly, so he wave to two men in truck.  Master Po very surprised that men are so happy to see him as they laugh and smile greatly.  They wave back too, and grins get even larger.  Master Po not recognize either man, so he very puzzled why they seem so pleased to see him with rake and shovel in hand.

When Coco finished, Master Po clean up area, put rake and shovel back and head to Jeep.  He then see reflection in Jeep window and realize, men in truck not happy to see Master Po at all. They laugh hysterically because of what Master Po have on head.

Master Po apparently man of many hats cause he forget he wear both hats out of garage.
