Well, there’s one way to make national – and international news! The mayor has forgiven Jimmy for the nibble on his ear (an official pardon was issued 02-03-2015) …
My thoughts are this:
Jimmy leaned in to whisper “Early Spring” to the mayor just as he caught glimpse of his shadow! Startled, a nip ensued and mixed signals received!
So, six more weeks of winter, or early spring? Yes! Guaranteed to be one or the other!
Jimmy arrived by limo to a well bundled up crowd at Cannery Square! There is nothing quite like the muffled applause of mittened hands! Jimmy did whisper his prediction…. And that is the beginning of a confused prognostication. As the mayor leaned in to hear Jimmy’s message, Jimmy nipped the mayor’s ear! Not serious, but enough to lend confusion to the event! The Mayor said Jimmy told him Early Spring, but since there was not a cloud in the sky… We’re pretty sure he misinterpreted it!
This Jimmy is the 11th in a long line of groundhogs. This was his first time in front of a crowd. I’m pretty sure he was nervous! It was the Mayor’s first prognostication too…. And sad to say, Jerry’s last time as Jimmy’s caregiver. Bundle that all together, and you get a complicated prediction, indeed!
The big day is coming! Get your winter woolens on and meet me at Cannery Square! Don’t be late!
