BTW...we're totally going to make plans to head up to Gobbler's Knob for the big Gorundhog Day celebration next year. Gates open at 3 AM. Lots of food, drinks, and all sorts of dressed up groundhog day groupies to be sure. Seriously. I figure I have to experience it at least once in my life...since we live so (relatively) close and since I'm technically a groundhog :-) If you're crazy like us and want to tag along, let me know.
Fast forward...as I've been writing this post and searching the net for photos of Phil, I've read a little about the legend and folklore that is Punxsutawney Phil. Apparently he is the one and only official groundhog and been predicting the weather for a whopping 126 years. Immortal groundhog. How does he do it, you say?? The Elixir of Life. I should have known. Needless to say, in addition to the few photos of Phil I found, I had to look through many, many more of the crazy-intense people who are way, way, way too into it! Woah. We might not know what we're getting into.
|Just a quick question...why is Phil being bribed with a mint milano?|
