Hello, furry ones!
Yesterday was Groundhog Day and Mr. Groundhog had quite an eventful time with everybody watching and waiting to see if he saw his shadow. Now, you have to understand that after so many years of shadow-watching and people watching and those people watching him, that our friend has become a recluse. It's true!
So, the groundhog everybody saw yesterday was NOT Punxatawny Phil!
You heard it here, my friends!
In truth, the real Phil wants nothing to do with people. He told me so himself. All the flashing cameras and stupid cell phones, the obligation to look for his shadow every year, and someone taking off with his welcome mat outside his den has put him over the edge.
But, we caught up with him, and he was nice enough to pose for my blog! Thank you, Phil!
Dig his hat, worn Sinatra-style!
Anyhow, that's the truth of the matter.
Any other groundhog claiming to be him is bogus.
Just thought I'd give you the scoop!
