Project Cubbins: Hat 325 - Tiniest Swashbuckler Edition

Day 325 / Hat 325: Gray printed paper pirate hat with black and white Jolly Roger print detail on front and and brown contrast printed edging. Additional detail includes elastic string to keep in place while buckling assorted swash.

Freshly assembled for purposed of the Project from the package of Mini Party Hats (a Christmas-tide gift from my sainted mother) , it being the final hat in the series of six. (For some reason the teeny tiny tiara and the pink cowboy hat slipped through my grasp -- I feel pretty confident they're safe and sound among my belongings at Naughty Pine back in the 802.)

Photographed in front of the Pirate Lair (aka Garlodge). Notice the piratical-looking lock on the door behind me.

Yes, you're right, I should've saved it for Pirate Season but there''s more pirate gear behind yonder blue door. Trust me on that.

And yesterday's hat was a big one -- in both size and impact -- so I figured today would be an appropriate time to play some small ball -- hat-wise anyway.

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
