Groundhog Meme

I was tagged for this meme by Mary, aka The Teach at Work of the Poet.

List five reasons why you either love or hate the groundhog.

The following are five reasons why I LOVE the groundhog. (or at leat tolerate it)

1) Ground hog rhymes with web blog

2) Considering how accurate my local meterologist is, how far fetched is it to ask a blind rhodent to predict a few weeks of wheather?

3) It's the other white meat.

4) Groundhogs don't ruin my lawn like moles do.

5) Somehow I don't think even Hallmark will be able to guilt us into buying cards and gifts for the sake of a groundhog.

The rules say to tag five people, but when have you ever known me to play by the rules. If you want to jump in on this one go for it. If not, no harm, no foul.

*Side note. My extra long days should wrap up pretty soon so I'll be back to posting on a more regular basis. Thanks for hanging in there and visiting even though I haven't had much to offer up lately.

Hallmark has cards for EVERY occasion, Jeff. That's why they are the #1 card company!

Don't work too hard.
