Rabbit rabbit because it's March 1. That's the ticket. Do you have any rabbits? I do. I have two of 'em. That's a good one. I don't know what I'm writing about, but I've started on hares. Would you like fries with that? I'm making rabbit stew. Oh, mai oui! Yes, that's the ticket. I wonder as I wander. Where are you going? Are we there yet? It's not 100 characters! It's 100 words. That's a good one. Next year in Israel. You will get what you want and your reality will be greater than your dreams. That's so true.

It's been a long time coming. It's going to be a long time gone. And it appears to be a long time before the dawn. Turn any corner. Hear, you must hear what the people say. You know that something is going on around here that surely won't stand the light of day. Would you like some fries with that? I think that's funny. But there's a total how to say I don't know. Jenna say what? I'm going to go out on a limb here and hope the branch holds. And then we'll see how that goes. I hope.

Marching through the month, I remain wondering where to wander. I wander through the streets wondering where I should go next. I am aimlessly going about the days and I feel like I am having the travel bug biting. It's hurting real bad. I need a break. That's the ticket. What's so wrong with wanting to get away from it all? Even if it's only for a few days, it could do some good. I think that's what I'm going to plan - a little trip. That's the ticket! I think it would give me a new perspective. I need change.

I will not March forth. I will observe March 4th. That's as far as I'm going. May the fourth be with you! Enough of that for now. Enough for now, right? It's going to be okay. Let's all repeat after me. Do you want fries with that? I think that's a good one. No need to wonder any more because you've wandered right into a fry free zone. Nothing fried here. Everything fried here. Which will it be? I made it this far. I'm not changing at this point. Or am I? I'm moving in that direction. It takes time.

Wow, what a large day. I won big at the race track. Actually, I was sitting at a slot machine in the casino aimlessly pushing buttons and out came a winning slip for $423.50. I was amazed. How did I do that? That was pure beginner's luck. I did manage to piss most of it away. That's what those kind of earnings are good for. We bought a shit ton of fresh seafood from the market and came home and had a banquet. I liked winning. There's something about a winner. Everyone loves a winner, right? That's right, dude.

It's the fifth day of the third month. Should be significant in some way. It was just another day. I laid about the house doing nothing. Actually, I ate so much rich seafood yesterday that I never felt hungry the entire day. Later in the afternoon, HRS left me half of his lobster tail which I devoured with relish. It was a good day yesterday with the three pounds of stone crabs, the oysters (all dolled up) and the lobster tails which were grilled when we got home. What a day! That's why today was sort of a nothing day.

Soon it will be St. Patrick's Day. I had a friend named Patrick. His birthday was March 17. He died this year. I was sad for awhile. I guess I still am. Long distance friendships are so difficult, especially when they're over. Those were the days. I remember when we were close. Very close. That was like 40 years ago. Sheesh, I'm old. These are the breaks. Break it down. I wonder what life will be like on the other side. That's a strange thought. Soon it will be a saint day. What of it? There are other saint days.

America is about three. There's north, central and south. They're all Americans. Go figure. All those Hispanic folks are Americans. That's rich. With all the talk about hating on people south of the border, it's just so ironic that they're all Americans, too. What of that, Mr. Dumpf? I'm so over all the over hate, racism, xenophobia and lack of discussion about the status quo of the rich get richer and blah blah blah. Latino or Hispanic? It don't matter. They're all Americans! Go know. I think it's a wonderful thing. That's the way of the world. Plant your flower.

Why do many people expect someone to do something for them? Why do people feel so entitled? There are certain entitlements that we all get, but we have to work for them. Nothing comes for free in this world. Well, everything you need to live is free of charge if you are charming and clean and presentable. But you need to earn some moola first. No cash, no ass, no grass. Or something like that. You know what I mean. There's a place in the world for a gambler. You can do it with Lindsley's help. That's a good one.

Any minute now, I'm going to start a whole food plant based diet. I've only been thinking about it for years, but I can feel myself being drawn to it to improve my health. I've read too much that now I have to prove it to myself. There's a 10-day test you can take to prove it by having your blood levels checked at the beginning to get a baseline and then in 10 days. The results are supposed to be simply amazing. Imagine what 30 days or the rest of your life could be like on this diet.

It's kicking time. It took me years, and I mean years, to get my Internet connection fixed. I settled for so long that I almost feel like I could pay any amount to have the real deal. And I'm getting TV and Internet for less than I was paying just for my TV. Thank you very much. Why did I wait so long? It's like I just stepped into the 21st century. Of course, they lied about some things and conveniently didn't mention other things but it's still better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Yeah!

I can't say why I waited so long but I finally did it yesterday and converted my telephone web connection to a cable web connection. I always said that I would never do it but I'm glad. At least I'm happy right now. Let's see what happens when it goes out! I know that's going to happen but for now I can download shite so fast it makes my head spin. I'm elevated! Who knew I could be so happy over a technological marvel? Having digital cable is pretty cool. The cable guy took more than three hours to connect!

Damn, this site is supposed to be a daily exercise but I can let it go far too long. They need to get the same technology as that other writing task site and then I would be here on a daily basis. That site has me at quite a writing streak, something like 1200 plus days. I know that there are good reasons to write and I like to write, but I'm not the best at 100 words. I'm the worst at one word! Have you ever been to that website where they give you a word and you write?

Happy birthday to my BIL. He's up north at home. My sister and he moved some years ago but then the financial collapse happened and he had to come to work in Miami and my sister continued to live up north. It's only like a five hour drive. They've been living a long distance relationship for years. It's wonderful that they've made it go. It's good for both of them. One more year and my BIL will hit the magic age of 62 and he can retire. He's counting the days! I have been retired but still working part time.

Happy birthday to my friend who has been dead for more than a decade. It's amazing how some people's deaths go unmarked because it's almost like a denial that they're gone. Most of our friends are like that. I couldn't tell you when they passed on because I don't like to admit that they're gone. So many of our friends have been gone for decades. Do we have a weird form of PTSD? It's possible. We're the walking wounded. We have survived all the scourges and just the years. We are still here. But not much longer, eh? We go.

Tomorrow is jolly St. Patrick's Day. I suppose that means that we get to drink a lot of beer and be silly because that's what Irish people do, eh? No, I don't think so. We can drink beer and eat corned beef and cabbage. Just imagine if I were a vegetarian! I wouldn't be thinking of corned beef, but just the idea of it makes my mouf water. I have to look for something really green to wear too! Remember in the old days if you didn't wear something green people would pinch you? Those were the days, my friend!

Happy Saint Pat's. Today is the birthday of my pal, Patrick. I think it's sweet that his mom named him after the day of his birth. He was my buddy in the Navy. I knew him for about a year. He came to visit me when I was stationed in Norfolk. Those were the days, my friend. We knew how to live. I miss those days, but I couldn't live that way now. I'm happy to be slowing down. That's what happens. I don't want to slow down like my friend. He slowed down to nothing. I want to live!

It's Friday once again. Fee gee eye tit or something like that. I will lie in bed all day and watch TV. Oh yeah, that's it for the day. Besides going downstairs to the kitchen and eating and drinking, and then I come back to the bed. That's a great way to pass the day. If I wait for you, then I'll go away. You celebrate your way, and I'll celebrate mine. There are a lot of things that should be done but I'd rather lie here in air conditioned comfort. It's hot outside already and it's not even April.

Saturday used to mean that I would go to the nursing home to visit Helly. Those days are long gone since she's been gone for more than a year. I miss her a lot sometimes. It's amazing how grief works. There are times when it just goes away and there are other times when it just becomes overwhelming. Usually I'm just going with the flow. The problem when I start thinking about someone who has passed on I start thinking about all the other people who are no longer in my life. What a rant this turned into. Oh my.

We went to the produce stand and on the way back I picked up the greens I picked yesterday. I have to remember that when I pick greens they have to be eaten on the same day. If I wait just one day they are wilted beyond recognition. So I washed them and made a soup with tofu and some spice. It turned out pretty good. We have had three servings and the leftovers are getting blended. That's the way to make it more creamy. The tofu will do that. It would have been vegan but I used chicken stock.

Spring has sprung. It's ironic that the temperature already started to climb and suddenly it's cooler again. It's not exactly cold, but it sure became brisk. That's enough of weather talk. Meanwhile back in the year one, the more things change the more they stay the same. I keep going to Starbucks for coffee and it's time to quit. I still haven't begun to walk and I'm ignoring my garden. I'm working on things, but things just keep on slipping into the future. It's a mad world. It's time already. I know that and so do you. Let's get busy!

Tuesday I'm just beginning to see. I don't know where I'm going with this so I'm just going to go with the flow. There are plenty of flowers. Will you be using flour, and if so, what type? There are plenty of flours that are just as good as wheat. Do you believe in the wheat belly? I certainly do, because as soon as I give in one inch to the dreaded white flour, I'm binging. Bingo was his name oh. Bee eye in gee oh. I'm in a mood but that's okay. This, too, shall pass. Be nice, dude.

Batch this! What the hell? I'm supposed to write here every single effing day, but I just don't have it in me. I think of things when I'm not near the laptop but I make an effort to remember. Most times, I just sit here and tap out letters that make words that form sentences and before I know it, I have typed 100 words. There I go again. So, the theme for to-day? I have no idea. I just want to fill up the 100 word quota and continue doing whatever it is I'm doing. Life is good.

This has not been a good month for me and 100 words. I think I have written here three times as opposed to 26 times. I come here and I realize that I've been remiss for a whole week or even more. I don't even know what my motivation is to write here any more. Why did I even start? I should go back to the beginning and see that I've been writing the same drivel for many years. There's no there there. Why would one person write over and over and over? It's totally baffling to me. That's true.

What did I do on this day that set it apart from other days. Today was a boring day. Nothing much happened. It's a lot like other days. The weekends come and go like lazy days. We just lie around and do nothing and eat and then nap. That sounds good to me. Of course, that means that nothing is moving forward. We have to keep moving. Nature abhors a vacuum cleaner. There's no reason to clean in a vacuum. I've always trusted that concept. It's not unreasonable to expect the future will hold. There's more at the door, dude.

We made it through the ides of March. Soon it will be the Ides of April and that means tax day. Raoul was asking me this morning why I haven't done our taxes yet and I told him that it's not a matter of making things up. It's all about reporting numbers and seeing what the final tally is. I know this because I've done taxes for many years. I never sent our numbers to someone else to crunch. I probably could have saved some money over the years, but oh well. What am I going to do now? Nothing!

I am a bad person. March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Is that right? Well, it wasn't so. Once again, but it never really applied here. I suppose it means that winter is at the beginning of the month and by the end of the month it's lovely spring time weather. That's not so true here. Because at the beginning of the month, we're already experiencing spring like weather and at the end of the month, it feels like summer time already! What's a mother to do? It's just not right. I'm not right!
