Groundhog Day, All Over Again...


Today was Groundhog Day... a day when we Americans, so attuned to our modern world, so dependent on our iPhones, tablets, laptops, GPS units, and every other technological device found under the sun, turn to a large, skittish rodent to forecast the future our weather pattern for the next six weeks.

Seems legit. 

According to Punxsutawney Phil, the most famous of all the meteorologically inclined critters, six more weeks of winter are to befall us, and only the foolishly un-superstitious have stored away the winter coats and ice scrapers. Of course, if you live where I do, "six more weeks of winter," = "hey look, six weeks of winter!"

And now for your obligatory Bill Murray, Groundhog day joke:

Glad you both enjoyed it! :)

Patrick Lyddy, things are looking up for me. I've started two kinds of therapy 4 days a week for my hips, and it seems to be helping. I believe I'm making progress. I've also been working at a business a few minutes from my house that is letting me come in when I can, so that I'm still able to make some money and do my treatments too.

I've gotten my house back to rights, and the last round of tornadoes missed me, and my new job site. (They were hit last time.)So all of that is a great blessing... along with my faith, family, and good friends, I'm doing alright. Oh, and yes, a good sense of humor always helps. LOL!

I hope you have a great weekend too! :)
