Project Cubbins: Hat 464 Hillary House Hat Edition

Day 464 / Hat 464: Brown knit cap with turquoise embroidery on front that reads: "Hillary." Interior tag reads: " WK, www.knithats.com, hand wash cold, lay flat to dry, 100% acrylic, made in U.S.A, RN 93084."

Loaned to the Project by my mother-in-law it does, indeed reference that Hillary (haters get over yourselves) and it was appropriated, so I'm told, by my true blue Democrat father-in-law as a "house hat" to potentially replace the similarly brown (but un-Hillaried) version she wears while padding about the pied-a-terre on a daily basis. (She's not the only one with a house hat - that's essentially what the "baby hat" has evolved into.)

Today's hat-tip goes to to all woman of power and influence in whatever capacity they serve. Yes, some serve higher office but some work small miracles every day behind the scenes. I've had a chance to spend time with some of those powerful women over the last few weeks and, having been reminded of their quiet work, realize they deserve a sincere doffing of the hat for their everyday efforts.

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
