In Celebration of Furry Critters–And I Don’t Mean Hairy Football Players

It’s that time of year:  Groundhog Day!  Yay!  Did you get all your cards mailed out on time? Decorate the house and yard festively?  Plan the party of the season and invite all the A-listers?  Yeah, neither did I…  Well, I invited a few, but so far Tom Hiddleston STILL hasn’t RSVP’d.  🙁

Maybe you’re sitting around in a football jersey instead with your face painted and your coffee table covered with enough chips and dip to feed a small nation, so caught up in the Superbowl frenzy that you forgot today was a very important day for one particular rodent: Punxsutawney Phil.   He’s a cute little fella, but since I just found out that he’s predicted six more weeks of cold, dark winter, he’s in the doghouse as far as I’m concerned.  Bad rodent!

Hope you all have a nice Groundhog Day nevertheless, and if you plan on watching the Superbowl–or, like me, just the commercials–I hope you enjoy that, too.  In the meantime, here’s a clip from the movie Groundhog Day in which Bill Murray re-lives the day over and over and–at least in this part–attempts to use that to his advantage.  Enjoy!  🙂
