February's a Strange Month: Black Rabbit Mixtape

Much to my surprise I have discovered that February is a month that commemorates many things. Here are a few:
            Valentine’s Day
            Black History Month
            National Grapefruit Month
            Spunky Broads Month
            National Pet Dental Health Month
            Return Shopping Carts to the Supermarket Month
            Marijuana Awareness Month (Always a favourite)
            Jobs in Golf Month
            Beans (Dried and Fresh) Month (not such a favourite)
            Adopt a Rescued Rabbit Month

And that’s not the half of it.

It is also the month when Washerman’s Dog issues another mixtape of wonderful music. Smooth soul, pop, classics, covers, African and Algerian.

Perfect to listen to as you adopt a rescued rabbit, feed it beans, search for a job in golf, grow your awareness about marijuana, contemplate returning all those shopping carts to the supermarket and search for a dentist for your pet while sipping grapefruit juice in the company of some of your favourite spunky broads.
