Project Cubbins: Hat 419 -- Flying with Bill Edition

Day 419 / Hat 419: Khaki-colored baseball-style cap with the word "Flying" embroidered on front in all caps and "" embroidered on back above Velcro-closure adjustable sizing strap. Interior tag reads: "100% cotton, made in China, RN# 102635."

Handed to me today by Zachary Harrison, eldest offspring of one Bill Harrison of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and my bestie from way back in the VA days. (You may remember him getting a shout out back in PC 129.) Bill had sent it to Zach to give to me for use in the project.

When he handed it over, ZH said: "I'm not sure exactly what it means." While I'm not 100% sure either, I'm guessing it's either a reference to the fact that Bill will be flying out here in October to visit his L.A.-based son - thus doing a pop-in here, or the fact we were co-pilots on Space Mountain so many years ago. 

Either way, today's hat-tip goes to Bill Harrison, with the assist to Zachary Harrison. I'm here and I'll leave the light on ...

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.
