Please Mr. Groundhog

Old Groundhog stretched in his leafy bed,
He turned over slowly and then he said,
"I wonder if spring is on the way,
I'll go and check the weather today.
If I see my shadow between eleven and noon,
I then will know that I'm out too soon.
I'll crawl back in bed for six weeks more,
Pull up the warm covers and snore and snore.
But if no shadow gives me a scare,
I know that spring in in the air.
I'll wake my friends and wish them cheer,
With glorious news that spring is here!"

Did you write that poem? Its great! I've never heard it before. As much as I love spring-time, this winter needs to last a long time around here. We need more and more rain, and we need it badly!

Ah...very cute! We have overcast skys here today...was suppose to be in the saddle at 9am today but at 7 the phone rang and the BOY TOY boged out on me. I could have gone with the rest of the group but decided not to. Now I will go ride with the Bossman this afternoon for an hour or so. Wish I could ride bareback out there!

I could swear I'm sleeping with Mr. Groundhog...snore...snore....part! I was up at 3:00 A.M. this morning! Too bad 6 more weeks of winter! I gotta get outta here! Between the cold, snow and snoring, I'm ready to get out of dodge! Not to mention the lack of getting to ride my favorite ponies! lol! I've resorted to viewing my videos taken of me riding this past summer at the trainers! LOL!
