Hehe #4 :) Come on spring!

I love Groundhog Day! It is the one "holiday" that Hallmark hasn't taken over. Instead of celebrating and being with people we can wake up, tell everyone to leave you the fuck alone, turn over and go back to sleep. You can bite someone if you want. Fucking bring it on!

DEZMOND said...

that last prediction isn't really a prediction but a general fact....

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

Happy Groundhog, Candlemas, Imbolc and I'm going with Willie and Phil!

Robin Larkspur said...

I knew I could count on you to give us a good laugh about the stupid groundhog thing! Love them all!!

Wendy S. said...

Meh, 6 more weeks of winter? Who cares? Grumpy cat would eat Phil up.

Sulky Kitten said...

I thought it was just a movie!

Dancing Goddess said...

I think the 9 more months of bullshit is optimistic Mr. Phil.

Magic Love Crow said...

Tilda said...

The groundhog and the guy holding him look strangely similar---especially in the 4th picture, haha!

Riot Kitty said...

These are great! I think we all see b.s. with politicians, though...

Jeanne said...

Yep! That's what the forecast was for here as well. :0)

Rue said...

The groundhogs always know where its at. I am going with Phil and Willie this year. Forget the more Eastern rodents. Spring is coming. Period.

Happy February!

Phil had better be right. I'm sick of all this snow. If he's wrong, I'm sending my cat after him.

Also, as has already been said, that last picture is absolutely hilarious.

Hi Debra, I keep seeing your gloved hands icon showing up on blogs that I'm following, especially in "From Sophie View" and "Ocean Breezes," so I decided to visit your blog and become a follower. As an elementary teacher, I had to deal with Groundhog Day every year, so this post was full of laughs for me. By the way, I loved the last image - it's hilarious and true!

SUZY8-TRACK said...

I love Phil! He's so cute with his chubby cheeks! Even though he predicted an early spring, it certainly doesn't feel that way today...supposed to get some snow later.

Elsie The Writer said...

I was wondering if we were going to get more freakin' cold weather. My poor daffodils are so confused. They came up from the ground during the warm snap we had, then they froze during the snow!

Professor Chaos said...

It really baffles me that every year hundreds of media outlets all pretend that a cute fuzzy animal can somehow accidentally predict the weather by maybe seeing a shadow or not. How are we supposed to advance as a civilization if we can't let go of nonsense like this?

Hi Debra,
That last one - I need to steal,lol..
