Ground Hog Predicts An Early Spring

February 3, 2012

The sun is shining, and it's lovely this morning even if it is a bit chilly.  When I left for work this morning, it was still dark outside.  On the way, I stopped at Dunkin Donuts to get coffee.  The sky was still very dark when I got back on the road to work.  However, before I could make it to the next traffic light, it was daylight.  Just like that!  In a moment, the sky went from dark to very light.  I guess unless you are outside when this happens, you don't ever realize just how fast it happens.

I checked to see what the ground hog had to say about Spring.  When he (the ground hog, Chuck from Long Island, NY) came out of his little cabin, he saw no shadow.  Therefore, Spring will be coming early this year.  This is excellent news!

Well, yesterday was quite a busy day.  Eddie stopped by for a little while.  We forgot the ceiling paint, so that can wait till next week.  No big deal.  Instead, we had a cup of green tea and a nice visit.  I spent three hours on line and on the phone making our travel arrangements.  Wow!  Air travel is soooooo expensive!  Even Tootsie's round trip ticket was $200!

Folks, Blogger is behaving badly this morning.  I just finished typing this whole post, and it shut down.  When I brought it back up, almost the whole post had been erased.  I'm at work and don't have time to re-do the whole post so I'll just move on to the photos.  Sorry.

This morning, I have some photos of one very happy little duck.  He even looks as if he is smiling! 

Now I think I should start preparing some breakfast for the Mrs.  She should be waking soon.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

That looks like a happy duck! I'd forgotten all about Ground Hogs Day. Of course, I keep forgetting it's winter also :)

Edna, Yanno the Long Island groundhog is a Yankees fan! Just sayin’, can you really trust him?

I love watching ducks flip under and stick their tails up to grab something tasty from the water! :)

Have a great weekend! Go Pats!

Hugs, Nani
