Shadows


Happy Groundhog Day!! I have always enjoyed the Bill Murray movie, where he has to live a day without sneering at everyone in his world, in order to stay with his true love...and he's SUCH a pain in the rear guy at the beginning, that it takes a l-o-n-g time to become a member of society that no one wants to punch in the face the instant he says something!

Well, so did Punxsatawney (I spelled it right!) Phil see his shadow and will there be 6 more weeks of winter...??

If the answer is driving you mad, go to his website: Punxsatawney Phil

According to Wikipedia, the groundhog is a large rodent. He's also called a "woodchuck" which brings to mind the famous question ditty:

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Do you know the answer??? Of course it's:

A woodchuck chucks WHAT a woodchuck chucks if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

So, he chucks whatever he wants. A strong minded individual.

So, six more weeks of winter....OOOOPPPPS, I gave it away! Guess it was a sunny day in Pennsylvania. Sorry Phil. But congratulations on your 15 minutes of fame!

Have a great day, dear readers! We've got clouds so NO shadows...does that mean WE WON'T have 6 more weeks of winter HERE??!! What's your weather report?

I may be the only one left but I want six more weeks of winter and I want a little snow along with it. As for Bill Murray...what I remember is he learned to play the piano and since I have struggled for years trying to learn, his way sounds really good. Great post.
