Project Cubbins: Hat 455 -- True Blue Admiral Edition

Day 455 / Hat 455: Blue, baseball-style cap with white embroidery on front that reads: "True Blue Proud Democrat," with interior label that reads "Made in U.S.A."

Loaned to the Project by my father-in-law (AKA the Admiral) who is as true blue a Democrat as they come. He's the bearded Ernest-Hemingway-looking cat in the photo with me. He hasn't been putting a razor to his face for close to four weeks now, having stepped off a curb in the Big Apple and ruptured his Achilles tendon. Frankly, I think the look suits him -- and adds to the maritime vibe of my nickname for him.

Of its provenance, he says it's the result of donation to the Dems, most likely to the DSCC. 

Today's hat-tip? That'd be to the Admiral. He's unshaven -- I'm the Tschorn.

A Year Ago Today in Project Cubbins

Q: 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 celebrated 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
