This is done by Inner Circle members.[5] According to the Groundhog Club, Phil, after making the prediction, speaks to the Club President in "Groundhogese", which only the current president can understand, and then his prediction is translated for the entire world."
I've reverted back to a 12 year old and keep chuckling that Phil lives at Gobblers Knob

There used to be one here as well, Houston Horace, but everytime he made an appearance someone took a shot at him so he went into hiding. And that explains why we have no seasons here what so ever

Gen Beauregard Lee, the resident rodent in Atlanta said, oh no, 6 more weeks of winter. He's been correct 94 percent of the time.

Oh no I can handle three months of it and that's it. And then only because I know that spring will be here, hopefully next month!

Decided to write on my Dad blog again today. Haven't done that in nearly two months. Got some very nice messages from people about it to.

Being able to use my treadmill again, and also getting back out on the open road for a speed walk. Feels great.
