Project Cubbins: Hat 209 - Makin' a Moose of the 802 Edition

Day 209 / Hat 209: Pink baseball-style cap with black embroidery that reads "802" with brown embroidered moose detail in the middle of the "0."

For those of you unfamiliar with such things (I swear I've mentioned it in prior posts but looking back I see no evidence) 802 is the area code for the Green Mountain State. Yes, that's right --  the entire state.

And, despite there being several moose warning signs along the various and sundry byways of this southern stretch of the 802, I have never, in all my years here, actually seen a moose on the loose.

This was kindly snapped at the Wayside Country Store (where you can buy one of these bad boys for $16.99) by Liz Zakrzewski who is one of the store's employees -- and youngest child of a guy I grew up knowing as "Ted the Telephone Guy." (Go back and look at that mouthful of a last name and you'll know why ...)

So today's winter solstice hat tip goes to the Wayside -- with an assist to Liz!

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 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!
