October



So, it's October again. We really should get some new months. I mean, really. It's the same old 12 months over and over and over. Can't we do better than that? We're Americans! Heck. We oughta be able to produce a new month now and then.

Meanwhile, say Rabbit Rabbit for good luck in October. After all, a black cat could cross your path. Or a witch on a broom. Those witches. Can't be too careful ya know.

Thinking about a thirteenth month is stressing me out.


All of you should get on this. I shouldn't be the only one working on this new-month thing. Get busy.

Rabbit rabbit! What about a month we'd just call "The Thirteenth"? Sounds a little scaring, and lots of holidays could be put in,

Great idea, TLP and Ariel. Or we can rename the Thanksgiving month Pezember. July and August are named after lesser folk than TLP. Deader, too.

I have to laugh at that rabbit photo. He looks like he is saying...
"Sheeeesh...there she goes with that camera again!!"

Rabbit rabbit. I remember how they wanted to change the calendar to 13 months with 28 days each, but it never caught on, just like the metric system. But I think everything else in my lifetime has changed.

Rabbit, Rabbit. I found you again. i think you may have been zigging while I was zagging.

I love the face on that rabbit. There's real intelligence there.

There should be an extra month beginning December 21st and lasting for 28 days. No one is permitted to work, so stock up on microwavable meals and toilet paper. it is a time for warm booties, good books and hot toddies with your peeps. And i dub it: Tredecimary or Tredecimber

Rabbit, rabbit! I think we should skip the 13th month and go straight to the 14th. I'm not usually superstitious, I just like to say rabbit, rabbit to be safe, which is the way I feel about having a 13th month. And, as Tom pointed out, there's no rational reason why we have ONE beastly month with only 28 days, except for once every 4 years, when it has 29 days.

Was there a point to this? No.

Rabbit, rabbit!!
