Project Cubbins: Hat 425 - Busy as a Beekeeper Edition

Day 425 / Hat 425: Cream-colored sun hat with four-inch brim and four copper grommet and black mesh air vents on crown. Additional detail includes a subtle-to-the-point-of-stealth tone-on-tone embroidery on crown (which the blur hat number tag in the above photo is pointing right at) that reads: "Burt's Bees." Interior label reads: "100% cotton, made in China, RN 97556."

You know what's a good way to end a week? Coming home to find a bag of hats on your doorstep. That's exactly what I found when I rolled into the homestead this afternoon -- thanks to FOC (Friend Of Cubbins) Josie Witte who dropped 'em off personally in a bag marked: "Cubbins - Rock On!"

Which means a Friday hat-tip - and a future tour of the apiary -- goes to Josie for her thoughtful loan of this (and another soon-to-be-featured) floppy hat.

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.
