Greetings from Punxsutawney!
Phil Says Six More Weeks!
Hear Ye Hear Ye Hear Ye
On Gobbler's Knob on this glorious Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2010, Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators awoke to the call of President Bill Deeley and greeted his handlers, John Griffiths and Ben Hughes.
After casting a joyful eye towards thousands of his faithful followers, Phil proclaimed, "If you want to know what's next, you must read my text. As the sky shines bright above me, my shadow I see beside me. So six more weeks of winter it will be."
Can you believe it? This animal that looks like a heavy set squirrel or a funny looking cat or a huge rat that they call a groundhog can predict if we are going to have six more weeks of winter? He even has a day called Groundhog Day named for him....I wonder if there is a Newfie Day and I wonder if I could predict anything....I will have to put my research hat on for this one!
Later -- Remington -- still glad there is six more weeks of winter -- SNOW FOOTBALL, anyone? -- out!
