Just five days* update-Just 2 days now


It's just two days until that silly ground hog makes his forcast for the rest of the winter. So you know that spring is close.

Niks and I will go to Punxsutawney on Tuesday, and stay until at least Thursday afternoon, and possibly Friday. Depends on how much fun we can find.

I'll check on blogs when I can, but I won't post until next weekend.

Watch for me on TV. I'll be the one in twenty layers of clothing.

Have fun!

Say hi to Punxsutawney Bill from all of us.

A Little Bar of Soap said...

Filthy superstition! New Age blasphemy!

joared said...

Do they let that poor little guy wake up on his own on the day of his choosing, or do they just drag him out on a specific day 'cause humans have the press and TV cameras scheduled?

Have fun!

Keith said...

Don't forget to wave to us. Better still carry a placard with "I'm the famous TLP".

We have a similar thing here called "Gobsmackingandkickass" Day", when they all dance naked around an effigy of the Prime Minister at the time.

I'll be interesting in knowing how they keep Phil from running away.

If you find a LOT of fun, I'll have to suggest that we try this next year:)
So, have a lot of fun!!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Thanks T & I! I plan to.

Hi Hale McKay! Haven't seen you in a long time.

Little Bar: Yeah, ain't it the truth.

Joared: They drag him out. But they really are nice to him the rest of the year.

Keith: Let me know when you go to that one. Wave to me.

ActonBell: I hear that there's a LOT of beer consumed. No problem finding fun.

Fuckkit said...

Strange tradition methinks. Mind, I come from a country where we celebrate a failed attempt to blow up parliament with fireworks and burning effigies of a bloke called Guy :)

Saur♥Kraut said...

Have a great time! Why dontcha add to my menagerie and see if you can find a baby? At the rate I'm going, I'm turning into Michael Jackson... gawd, where is that burka...I know it's around here somewhere...

Fred said...

Make sure you get one of those hats for Niks. Heck, why don't you wear one too?

still life said...

A whole week without TLP, Tan Lucy Pez aka Tender Loving Posts...what am I supposed to do now?

Minka said...

I loved the movie: "Groundhog Day". I think it was Bill Murray. How many hundreds of years has this animal been alive now? Must be a decendant or something of the original PHIL by now?!

Klondike Kate said...

Have fun! Your wit will be missed! And I'm with Keith - carry a placard!

Boobabe said...

Sounds like fun. So what does it mean if he sees his shadow and what if he doesn't??? Either way winter sucks!!

Doug said...

Have fun, TLP! It's about 70 here so I wouldn't even be watching if it weren't to find you.

Sylvie said...

Have fun. Of course as a proper Wisconsinite, I'll be watching Jimmy the Groundhog.

OldHorsetailSnake said...

Lucy: With all your clothing, you may cast a large shadow on the proceedings. So then how will Phil know what to do?

Sar said...

Have a wonderful and hopefully warm time, TLP! Could you do me a favor and wave with your right hand? It'll be our secret wave and when I see it I'll say that's the famous TLP waving to me! :)

Bela said...

Hope you have a wonderful time and manage not to be stuck there for ever. :-)

Jamie Dawn said...

Enjoy your trip!
You must tell us all about it. If it turns out to be dull, please make something up.

AP3 said...

Enjoy your blogging break, too!

lime said...

i think you should sew a pez to your hat to help us pick you out of the crowd. have fun!

mireille said...

thank you for checking in ... and have fun with the groundhog! xoxo

angel, jr. said...

I think for the most part, winter is over. At least in West Virginia it has been.

Libby said...

huh...we must have a twin in ohio...buckeye chuck!!

Manchego said...

I'm kind of jealous. But hey. Here's a question. If the little rodent's hole is surrounded by tall people with cameras and LIGHTS, isn't he gonna see his shadow everytime????

Lucy said...

Folks in PA have all the fun.
Is there like a Ground Hog Day Eve party or something?

sherle said...

You know... every year i think about Phil and wonder is i shouldn't take advantage of the old groundhog that has tunnels all over under my garage!

Will be watching for you Lucy! ;-)

BarbaraFromCalifornia said...

I am so jealous! I have always wanted to go to that city for groundhog's day, honestly.

Please take lots and lots of pictures to post!!!

Ivy the Goober said...

Hey, now that I know what you look like from the Hershey's ride, I will look for you!

Monique said...

Enjoy your trip!

kenju said...

Please help Phil not to see his shadow!

dddragon said...

lol - I can't believe all the comments already!

And here in PA there are plenty of other rival groundhogs ...

joel said...

Although I don't think you can use fasting as a diet or weight loss program, I do feel that it can be a great start to a proper weight loss diet and exercise program. I think it is definitely something that everyone should do at least once a year.

Fred said...

Are we there yet? Huh? TLP, are we close?

I think you went so you didn't have to watch the State Of The Union address. Very clever.

Jamie Dawn said...

Looking forward to reading all about your trip!

AP3 said...

Rabbit, rabbit!

Sar said...

Ditto AP3!

Doug said...

Groundhog, groundhog! (sausage, sausage)

Manchego said...

...or the all inclusive..."RODENT, RODENT!"

dddragon said...

Rabbit Rabbit squirrel squirrel chipmunk mole vole

schnoodlepooh said...

Oh please please please let him not see his shadow. If we have six more weeks of this wretched rain I swear I'll go insane....

AP3 said...

Groundhog, groundhog!

AP3 said...

I heard. 6 more weeks of winter. *sigh*

AP3 said...

I'll bet they don't have "the internets" (as W. would say) in Punxsutawney, huh?

Manchego said...

So, it's the big day! Woodchuck, woodchuck! Winter? Oh, #$(@!

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH
sorry, it's almost over, we are almost back to having TLP coverage of the blogworld.
I have tried to be strong, but...
sob sob
I've missed you.

Sylvie said...

Ha! Jimmy the Groundhog said early spring.

Meegan said...

Hi TLP, I hope you're having a great time!

BarbaraFromCalifornia said...

Hi TLP!

I heard that he saw his shadow yesterday!!! More winter and cold weather, huh.

I cannot wait until you post pictures.

Lucy said...

eagerly awaiting the TLP report.

Doug said...

I'm starting to worry the groundhog ate TLP.

dddragon said...

**tapping foot***

actonbell said...

Hey, TLP, we're all waiting to hear about the ceremony's highlights!

Good luck catching up on your sleep, I'm sure you were messed up for awhile:)
