Project Cubbins: Hat 393 - In the Pink (Dodgers' Cap) Edition

Day 393 / Hat 393: Pink baseball cap with blue embroidery of Los Angeles Dodgers logo on front and New Balance logo (also in blue embroidery) on wearer's left..Interior fabrication tag reads: "100% acrylic, made in China."

Barring any undiscovered leftover lids, this marks the final contribution to the mother lode of millinery that was the Marilyn Ruiz Bag o' Hats. (But I'm not counting her deep hat bench out  - this particular one is the last of four leftover lids discovered when I as repatriating her generous cornucopia of caps.)

For those of you keeping track (you know I am) this makes the fourth Dodger-related piece of headgear in the mix (others are PC 335, PC 334 and PC 149), but the first of those in a dashing shade of pink. 

PC 93: Sparkle Minnie Ears
PC 193: Cap from Kabul
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.
