Well that ole rodent, Punxsutawney Phil, saw his shadow today. Supposedly that means there’s 6 more weeks of winter left. Little do the people know that fall for this each year, but if you look at a calendar, there ARE 6 weeks left of winter. Anyone can read on a calendar the day that spring begins!!
I used to love Groundhog Day when I was little. Now I don’t care one way or the other. I swear that groundhog takes after me though. He’s fatter and fatter each year!! Truth be told, ole Phil has seen his shadow more often than not. It must be really sunny up there in PA!!
Did you know that a groundhog is just a woodchuck?? Yep, it sure is. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuch wood? Remember that growing up?? HAHA We had to learn that for English in school. We had to be able to properly pronounce all of our words and we had to do riddles in front of class and be understood when we did it. Too bad that’s not something that’s being passed onto our younger generation. Miss K had never heard that riddle until I told her today. Quite sad that school has forgotten the simple things that really did work at making us better.
Can you see your shadow today??
