Felix wakes up March second,
he's now a big nine years of age.  

The funny thing is
he doesnít feel any
different.  

Heís still hungry,
his old manís still locked-up,
and his old ladyís still
hollering at him,
as usual.  

Sheís still not feeding him regular,
and thatís hard on his stomach,
which aches and aches,
as usual.  

He figures that might be the reason
sheís always hollering at him
as usual.  

He really does wish
he could make that
little problem go away.  

He figures itís not going
to be easy to do that.  

Of course,
nothingís easy around
his neighborhood.  

Itís not an easy place
his neighborhood isnít.  

No, itís not, not at all.  

He doesnít know what to do,
but he figures he better do something,
before he just dries up
and blows away in the cold wind,
coming through everywhere,
and all around the leaky house.  

He thinks perhaps
if he had some money,
things could be a little different.  

Then, at least, he could wrap his mouth
around a cheese steak sandwich.  

Heís heard that just the ticket,
to warm you up.  

Felix dreams about
all that he could do
if he only had some money.

Bobby

Well, Felix was born in March (like Marchmadness) my birthday is the 12th, now I feel even closer to Felix. I think I understand him very well.

Passing shadows,

Yes, most all of us must have money to live.  I'm sure you will find money, the same as Felix.

Good luck in that regard.

LadyTom,

Thanks for the read and comment.

Felix deals with the years one-by-one as they come along.

My goodness! I almost missed Felix's birthday! The operative word is "almost"!
~ 'Cause Earth Angel's here now!

I have just baked him a heavenly BD cake
and I have put several silver dollars
in it, as a surprise!
He can have several Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches and stuff his precious little face!

Note that there are fresh strawberries
on top of the cake! Lots of Vitamin C in them!

Happy 9th Birthday Dear Felix!

Love & Birthday hugs,
EA

Earth Angel,

Awww geez.  Felix is having quite a birthday.  He's becoming overcome with emotion.  

It's way gratifying for Felix to know how many people care about him.

Thanks Hon.
