THE CAT (99) IN THE HAT

Photo by Ken Palm, Rye Reflections

Charlie Griffin is known as The Hat Man at Portsmouth Hospital. Every day, wearing a kooky cap, Charlie roams the corridors, popping in and out of patients' rooms, bringing good cheer. He's a legend. Last week the Honorary Ambassador was honored on his 99th birthday, and, yes, that called for a special hat. Here he enjoys a moment with admirers.
