The mighty Quinn

Here’s Hattingdon wearing a sweetheart hat, with its magnificent, wide upswept brim in red, white and blue, and adorned with an anchor. Vivian named the hat Quinn — after a song that came to mind while she was creating it. More on that in a minute, but first . . . . the hat!

Quinn Hattingdon.

Adorable! Now, the song — the Mighty Quinn.

Remember this anyone? By the inimitable Bob Dylan, performed below by Manfred Mann, considered the quintessential interpreters of the song. Here are a few of the lyrics:

Come on without
Come on within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn
Come on without
Come on within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

Everybody’s building
Ships and boats
Some are building monuments
Others dummy pound notes
Everybody’s in despair
Every girl and boy
But when Quinn the eskimo gets here
Everybody’s gonna jump for joy
