No Surprise Here

As much as I love February and all the made up Holidays in it, I do think that Groundhog's Day is absolutely ridiculous. Seriously? All the morning news shows have to announce and discuss how some rodent saw his shadow. Look at that crowd! Of course he saw his shadow...the damn groundhog has cameras flashing everywhere. And of course we have six more weeks of winter! It's only the first week in February! Then they have a fireworks show. Are we really a nation in crisis if we waste time and money on a groundhog?

Also, why isn't the groundhog ever a woman? Probably because she is smart enough to know not to get out of bed yet because there are too many people out there and it is way too cold.
Here's a little groundhog joke for you...
Over breakfast one morning, a woman said to her husband, "I’ll bet you don't know what day this is.""Of course I do," he answered as if he was offended, and left for the office.At 10:00 a.m., the doorbell rang and when the woman opened the door, she was handed a box of a dozen long stemmed red roses. At 1:00 p.m., a foil-wrapped, two-pound box of her favorite chocolates was delivered. Later, a boutique delivered a designer dress.The woman couldn't wait for her husband to come home."First the flowers, then the chocolates and then the dress!" she exclaimed. "I've never had a more wonderful Groundhog Day in my life!
