Happy August!

And that isn’t a sentiment. IT’S A COMMAND!!!

Three white rabbits sat in a row
Looking forward with nowhere to go
The middle one sat up, and declared ‘”I know!
“We’ll do what we do, enjoy it, and go with the flow!”

And the rest became history.

Some commands are worth taking heed of. Onwards! Upwards! Forwards! Forever!

A bit of Monday silliness to sprinkle a little light. Well, it would be, had it been posted on a Monday. (Note for future historians reading this post: August 1st 2017 was a Tuesday. The last time it was a Monday was in 2016, and the next time will be 2022, when it will be/was the only Monday 1st of the whole year!)

The Roman Emperor August I started the Pax Romana era (Roman Peace), which was a time of considerable peace that lasted for around two centuries. Augustus, as he preferred to be referred to, named August (the month) after himself.

‘Onward, upward and forward’ is used in the Bahamas’ national motto (Forward, Upward, Onward Together); the Roman Empire’s motto was ‘Senatus Populusque Romanus’ or ‘The Senate and People of Rome’ (not quite as uplifting I feel)

However, let us now be like those white rabbits… and roam free! Well, it is silly Monday Tuesday. 👅

  2. Three white rabbits – it must be going to be a very lucky month! I like August, but the sad thing is that it’s the last summer month. 🙁

  4. Tom … I have to ask …
    Where did you get (learn) the term ‘White Rabbits’ for the beginning of every month? I’d really be interested to know as it’s such a curious little (good luck) saying, and so few people know about it.

    Cute bunnies. 😀

    1. White Rabbits has been with me forever, Cobs… I just thought everyone knew the term.
      I have no idea where it came from… I presume it’s like knocking on wood. You’ve got me thinking now.
      Yes, I quite like these bunnies too!
