Project Cubbins: Hat 155 - Super Fly Edition
Day 155 / Hat 155: Black plush fly hat with green metallic colored "feelers," red metallic colored eyes and multi-metallic colored wings from Elope, 75% polyester, 25% cotton made in China.
This super-fly fly hat was in the box of "Halloween / Seasonal" excavated from Garlodge storage yesterday. It's among the pieces of headgear I wear while answering the door and handing out candy on all Hallow's Eve.
This hat reminds me of the movie I was watching yesterday while abed -- "Them!" -- a 1954 movie about civilization-threatening giant mutant ants resulting from the atomic tests in New Mexico.

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!
