Anyone who knows me knows that I HATE critters that do not belong inside or around my house. Snakes, mice, coons, groundhogs, you name it, I hate it! On this day, I went to the garage to get something, and much to my surprise, this varmint was at the foot of the garage doorway. At first, there was no urgency, as I thought the house cat was just trying to get back in the house. However, it didn’t take long to realize that with those bucked teeth and flat tail that it was not Charlie Snow. It was, in fact, Punxsutawney Phil.

With today being Groundhog Day, Phil probably won’t exit his hole. He won’t try to assess the weather to see if he can see his shadow or not. He doesn’t want to encounter another Chuck Norris-like human again. So ol’ Phil will be taking a sabbatical from his duties until further notice, not because he saw his shadow but because he encountered Kyle Ballou. 😉

Kyle went to the garage and nearly stepped on a groundhog that was standing at our door from the house to the garage. The following is what ensued…for your viewing entertainment…😂😂😂
