RABBITS, RABBITS! It's a new month....

When I was a girl, a friend told me that if you say "Rabbits, rabbits!" out loud, first thing before your feet hit the floor out of bed in the morning, you will have good luck all month long. Even though I have no idea of the story behind this, I still think of it on the first day of each month, although not always in time to get the full dose of good luck..... I never heard anybody else ever mention this for years and years until one day in the locker room at the Y, I overhead a woman telling another about saying "Rabbits and hares, rabbits and hares!" for good luck on the first of the month. She didn't know what it was all about, either, but she had been doing it since she was a girl.

Does anybody out there know the story behind this?

Anyway, March 1 marks a period of new resolve; I'm going to try to POST some painting each day. Doesn't mean I'll complete a painting each day, just that I'll post whatever I've got going, in whatever stage it's in. It was right about this time last year that my daily painting fell apart, which I'm blaming on the flood. They say we're to have another this year, but I have resolve about trying to stay the course here. Onward.
