Happy Groundsquirrel Day!

Once again, I love my Mom. Today she sent me another announcement, to inform us of this important development in her religious tradition the California Local-Wight Pagan Society**:

In this year of hoping for MORE WATER instead of more dry sunlight, I am delighted to see that the groundhogs in California (if there are any) did not see their shadows.
Since the original ‘groundhog’ for this legend were the badgers in Germany, I officially declare ground squirrels to be California’s groundhogs, and wish them a very nice free shower today.


So, Happy Groundsquirrel Day! May there be more water!


** There are three of us now, it seems! Plus Yul Brynner as an honorary member, apparently. I have no idea why.
