Project Cubbins: Hat 214 - Troublemaking Tannenbaum Edition

Day 214 / Hat 214: Custom trucker-style hat with green mesh back and white foam front with printing that reads: "Naughty Pine" accompanied by a grinning and winking pine tree logo that's so naughty it makes the Grinch look like Mother Teresa (close-up above right) . Additional detail includes green terrycloth sweatband lining.

"Naughty Pine" is the nickname for  the 802 pied a terre, which in another era (say the late '80s or early '90s) might be colloquially referred to as a "party house.," and the punny name is also a reference to the fact that my in-laws' place next door is dubbed "All Pine." (Though I had, in all earnestness, suggested "Mostly Pine and One Son of a Birch.") 

This was a Christmas present from my sister-in-law Kathleen and with it she moves into the Project's rarified "Hat Angel" status. So a tip of the troublemaking tannenbaum bough toward 'Thleen.


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!
