Project Cubbins: Hat 186 - Talking Turkey Edition

Day 186 / Hat 186: Golden brown colored plush turkey hat with white paper drumstick cover detail. interior tag reads: "Made in China."

I've never been really good about scheduling themed hats, but I've been keeping ye olde turkey hat in cold storage ever since I began Project Cubbins, knowing I'd want it to be today's installment.

There's so, so much to be thankful for this year, I won't even begin to enumerate them because I know I'll forget something or someone. (Though my brother and my special girl both deserve a mention.). But I am especially thankful for the readers of my daily millinery missives. While I would be doing this exercise in silly headgear even if no one was reading, it's gratifying to get the response and support I have along the way. That I have a cornucopia overflowing with hats as a result is just, well, gravy I guess.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?

A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1

Got hats? If you loan 'em, you'll get e'm back safe and sound!
