FC: Where, Oh Where is Dimmy's Dr. Seuss Hat? By Jackie Gannaway
1: Once upon a time. . . Dimmy had a very fine HAT. He was a "Cat In The Hat" HAT. Dimmy wore her HAT whenever she read Dr. Seuss books to William. Erin and John.
2: Since Lily was too little at that time for Dimmy to read Dr. Seuss books to her- Dimmy let her HAT go help out with a production of Seussical The Musical at the Fredericksburg Theater Company.
4: Her HAT was so happy. He had a fine job. He sat on a lampshade helping light up the lobby. Everyone who came saw what a fine HAT he was.
5: Three weeks later Seussical The Musical was over - no more shows. Her HAT'S job was finished. What would he do now? He wanted to find new things to do.
6: Where did he go? No one knows! He forgot to tell Dimmy where he was going. She looked all over the theater. Is her HAT under the table? No! Is her HAT in the closet? No!
7: Did he go visit some Hat Friends he met at the show? No one knows! Did he go home with The Cat? No one knows.
8: Where, oh where, is Dimmy's Dr. Seuss HAT? Dimmy needs a NEW HAT to wear when she reads Dr. Seuss books to Lily. Lily is almost big enough now.
9: Should Dimmy wear this hat? NO!
10: Should Dimmy wear this hat? NO!
11: Should Dimmy wear this hat? NO!
12: Should Dimmy wear this hat? NO!
13: Should Dimmy wear this hat? NO!
14: Should Dimmy wear this hat? NO!
15: Should Dimmy wear this hat? NO!
16: Where, oh where, is Dimmy's Dr. Seuss Hat? Dimmy will miss her hat, but she feels happy because she knows he is havng fun wherever he is.
17: Until her HAT comes back from wherever he is . . . TWO of his Hat Friends want to go home with Dimmy. One Hat for Dimmy and one Hat for LILY!
18: So, pretty soon now, when Lily is big enough, Dimmy will wear her new Hat and Lily will wear her new Hat . . .
19: . . . and they will happily read Dr. Seuss stories while happily wearing their Hats!
20: Author's Note This is a true story. It happened in July 2009 when The Fredericksburg Theater Company swallowed up Phyllis Guthrie's Dr. Seuss hat. What happened to her hat remains a mystery for all time. (But we think he is having lots of fun WHEREVER HE IS!) Jackie Gannaway
