Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –
“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”
Today, February 2nd is Groundhog Day. According to folklore, there are two options that could happen today:
If it’s cloudy when the groundhog emerges and he doesn’t see his shadow, then spring will be right around the corner; but
- If it’s sunny when the groundhog emerges, he does *see* his shadow and retreats back into his burrow, then winter will continue for six more weeks.
The largest groundhog day celebration takes place every year in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
Personally, I hope that spring is right around the corner. I could go for some warmer weather here at the Hotel Thompson. And I know that oinker Bacon would enjoy it.
Good luck on whatever you want. I’ll be back soon! Oh and P.S. Some channels on the television are showing the movie Groundhog Day on repeat all day. Is there any day that you would like to repeat like in Groundhog Day?
This was the view this morning going to work – was there any doubt that the groundhog would NOT see his shadow? So here in Hotatlanta – would are in for an Early Spring.
I don’t know about you my friends but I’m all for that!

Snorts with piggy laughter. So true. Having breakfast repeatedly would be awesome for sure brother. Good luck at your doctor’s appointment today. XOXO – Bacon

No shadow! Spring is right around the corner. I would like to repeat the day I won my Annie Award for being Toto in the Wizard of Oz. Or maybe I could repeat one of the nights I performed… Either would be great!

Lily and Poppy (terriers) would like to live over Australia day. Daddy took them on a long car ride to the beach and there were 14 of their favorite peeps and a big barbecue going. That did nothing but run and play and eat barbecue all day and then they had ice-cream and watched a movie and lay on the carpet until Dad drove them home again. Bliss. ❤

Oh my! That’s sounds like a day *I* would like to live over and over Auntie Sharon! XOXO – Bacon
