    Hereabouts there was no shadow to see. Decided to take a long nap, which made about as much sense as anything else.

      Long naps are very excellent, indeed. However …..the guy I live with pointed out to me that it’s called “ground Hog day”. Oh well.

        Call it what you will, still an excellent day for a long nap.

        Almost every day is excellent for a long nap. I think that’s one activity which requires no excuses or justifications. “It was a beautiful day, so I spent it outside, napping.” Even that sounds reasonable.

        Well, young Chess, as so often with your posts, I had to look it up. You and the guy you live with are very educational as well as entertaining. We don’t have any subterranean hogs here. You didn’t enlighten us as to the day’s outcome – weatherwise for the weeks ahead. If it’s anything like here, it’s all gone completely mad…..

        A ground hog, also known as a woodchuck, is a marmot. Apparently, if the ground hog comes out of its burrow on February 2nd, and sees its shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. (Like the movie Groundhog Day.)
        Even though I’m not a ground hog, I saw my shadow, but the guy I live with says that here it means six more months of winter.

    You’ve seen your shadow – time for some brie!

  3. Ground dog day, huh. No wonder Petey and Shredder are out in the garden posing.
    You do look like you’re mulling Meaning, Chess. When you figure it out, let us know. I understand thinking goes better when a purebred Border Collie chomps on a biscuit.
