On the road again



Radio Question of the Day:
The tallest one of these was built back in 1999 in Bethel, Maine...What is it?

***********************

Daughters 3D and Acton Bell and I are going to Punxsutawney PA to see the Groundhog predict how long winter will last this year. Actually this year it will be to see if winter ever gets started. That Phil. Youngest daughter AP3 can't make it. Bummer.

We still don't have snow, but it has turned cold finally. Just in time for us to go up the mountain in the middle of the night, in the middle of the woods, in the middle of the winter. It would be so neat if it snowed! After the rodent comes out and prognosticates, they have wonderful fireworks. I've never seen fireworks while it was snowing.

We'll leave on Wednesday, January 31, and return on February 2 late. We'll have fun, whatever the little rat predicts.

**********************************
Answer to the Radio Question of the Day:
Snowman (113 feet tall...They used two 10-foot trees for arms and six tires for the mouth.)

Yeah, well they get SNOW! Unlike some places I know. Damnitall.

Oh I remember when you went to sat that little guy do his predicting last year, too! I hope you have a fine old time my dear, and I'll hope for snow for you, too!

Good thing Bethel didn't try for that snowman record this year. Yeah, there's some white stuff on the ground, but don't breathe, you'll blow it all away.

Those of us who are allergic to shovels aren't complaining too loudly ...

No snow!
"No, no, no, well yes, a bit" as the Pythons would say. It can snow a bit.
You gotta pack lots of stuff in the winter. Geez.

Well of course I missed this question. I was thinking practical, like the tallest outhouse, the tallest septic tank, and so on.

Welcome back! Did you have snow? Here in our part of the UK we have unseasonal mild weather. Think there must be something in this global warming.

Fred said...

Anzious to hear about your trip Lucy, and that little creature's trip out into the daylight!
Hope you and your girls had a good time!

I guess you won't be seeing any winter this year. Isn't that what Phil decided? And I heard that Phil is actually a FEMALE this year? Is that true? Could you tell?
