Hear Ye Hear Ye Hear Ye . . .
On Gobbler's Knob on this glorious Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2010, Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators awoke to the call of President Bill Deeley and greeted his handlers, John Griffiths and Ben Hughes.
After casting a joyful eye towards thousands of his faithful followers, Phil proclaimed, "If you want to know what's next, you must read my text. As the sky shines bright above me, my shadow I see beside me. So six more weeks of winter it will be."
Our Southern "Phil", General Beauregard Lee, from his home at the Yellow River Game Ranch, concurs: a rainy day, not a ray of sunshine to be seen, and thus six more weeks of winter to come.
All in good fun . . .
