The Grand Hog




February 2,  the infamous Ground Hog, Punxsutawney Phil, predicted there will be 6 more weeks of winter. *sigh*

Thanks to the Princess, this sweet little rodent will forever be known as the “Grand Hog” in the GRITS household.

The conversation when a little something like this 2 years ago in the back seat of my car:


Princess: “Mom, we learned about the Grand Hog today”

Me:  “The what??”

Princess:  “the GRAND hog”

Me:  “what is the GRAND hog???”

Princess:  “you know that animal that sees its shadow and we have 6 more days of Christmas”

Lego-Man:  “It’s not GRAND hog, it’s GROUND hog!!!  And it’s not 6 more days of Christmas, it’s 6 more months of winter!!”


Glad we’ve got someone in the family to keep us all straight. 


Oh, and I love this movie:

I just try to remember that he is in Pennsylvania and in no way does his prediction reflect upon the weather here in Alabama. I do not even agree with Birmingham Bill. Have you seen how she, yes (Birmingham Bill is a girl) decided we would have 6 more weeks of winter. It was ridiculous! I am going with the ground hog that came out from under my driveway, he did not see his shadow. :)

I vote to officially change the meaning of 'Grand Hog Day' to 6 more days of Christmas! And, BTW, I loved your blog.
