Tomorrow Is Ground Hog Day

Tomorrow Is Ground Hog Day

Tra!  La!

Today is Ground Hog Day Eve…

Punxsutawney Phil will be very busy…

 

I grew up cheek & jowl close to Pennsylvania…….so Ground Hog Day is a biggie for me…

…..well, that and the fact that it’s another chance for a party (with mediocre Bourbon)…

………………….but we don’t have Ground Hogs in sub-tropical Florida…………………

We don’t have many burrowing animals here in general…….

…..maybe that’s because we are so close to sea-level (at the best of times)…….and their little burrows would just fill up with water upon completion…

*****(I’ve seen that happen repeatedly with digging fence post holes—–you get about 2 1/2′ down and the water starts slushing in)*****

…..so, no mammalian burrowers in Florida…….reptilian and amphibian—–yes…

One  Of  Our  Backyard  Sink  Holes

…..just no successful, burrowing air-breathers…….

SO AS NOT TO BE DETERRED…….

Armadillo

I am designating tomorrow as a local holiday…….

It will henceforth be known as………….!!!Dillo Day!!!

Mr. and Mrs. Dillo

Mr. & Mrs. Dillo from the backyard will be called upon to come out and see their shadows.

Mr. Dillo will be duly crowned…….Armando  Aurelius  Armadillo.

I will dig up an assortment of grubs & worms & cockroaches & fire ants for their feast…

*****The Diet Of An Armadillo*****

Armando Aurelius will (or won’t) see his shadow…….

…..(armadillos have traditionally lousy eyesight)…

BUT…….there WILL BE feasting and merriment and mediocre bourbon all ’round…

Mediocre  Bourbon—–Huzzah!

Tra!  La!

Mr  &  Mrs  Dillo
