Did she or didn't she?


I don't know about where you live (or if you're basing your spring prediction on Punxsutawney Phil), but here at Run*A*Round, on this fine Groundhog's Day, Pig II not only saw her shadow...
...she got a freaking suntan!

She's such a diva!

Haha! Not here...we could swim in this rain.
Not that I'm complaining!
I'd actually like to experience some winter around here.

That is hilarious, we have currently got -6c daily temperatures, and are expecting the worse with bad winds of -45c coming from Russia.
he he he, that has made me chuckle !!!!!

ellen abbott said...

cute. they may be having 6 more weeks of winter up there but spring sprung out here while we were gone.

Candy C. said...

ROTFL!! Oh dang (catching my breath) I had forgotten about Pig II!! Love the pics with the sunglasses, guess you get six more weeks of "winter!"

Bruce Clark said...

Not here and I will take it. Only have had to break out the snow blower once, so far, this year.

A Quiet Corner said...

Where's the bikini? Our local GH saw NO SHADOW...:)JP

Tombstone Livestock said...

Just like Jimmy Buffet says ... "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" so I guess there will be 6 more weeks of winter "somewhere" LOL.

Montanagirl said...

Hilarity! LOVE IT!

Giga said...

Zabawne zdjęcia :-). U nas mu nie były potrzebne okulary przeciwsłoneczne. Bardziej by mu się przydało kolejne futerko, bo jest spory mróz -18 stopni. Pozdrawiam *** Funny pictures :-). With us it was not needed sunglasses. More imparted to him the next coat, because it is large frost -18 degrees. Yours

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Oh my, I think someone needs to get out from the ranch more often. (;^))

Sylvia K said...

Considering we're having a lot of sunshine for a few days, I guess it means winter will return with a vengeance!! I love your friend -- and her sunglasses!

Lynne said...

Thanks for the giggles . . . with our winter . . . all predictions are out the window. So far we haven't used our snow blower . . . A year ago today we were receiving over a foot of snow to add to the many inches we already had on the ground.

Today . . . ZIP snow and 50 degrees.

Rain said...

tooo funny Theresa!!!

Karen said...

ROTFL!!!!!

Mike said...

No shadows here this morning. NC uses the woolly bear worm to predict the winter. It's been wrong all winter, so far. If I'm going to go with a critter, I'll pick Chattanooga Chuck. He didn't see his shadow. Of course, our early Spring started right after Fall. ;)

Chatty Crone said...

He was so cute! Sunbathing... sandie

Janie said...

OH MY HOW CUTE!
I almost fell out of my chair at first. You got your collection of stuffed animals out. I think you are pretty clever. But will your dogs go after this one is the question?

I can't figure out the weather. Seems like early spring here. Ho hum.

Jane

Lorilee said...

We really haven't had much winter yet in my part of south Texas!
Blessings,
Lorilee

Barb said...

Ha!what a tease!

Carole M. said...

...so THAT's a ground-hog!

parker said...

LOL! The sun was bright here also, but starting to cloud up. Much needed rain is in the forecast tonight and tomorrow!

Michaele said...

I had forgotten all about Pig ll! So glad he got to come out today.

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Oh no! The shadow means 6 more weeks of winter! Who knows what the added sun tan means!:@)

Jill said...

Now this made MY day! I have been missing Pig!

Margie said...

You goofball! Margie

Darcie (My Modern Country) said...

Haha! I LOVE HER! We have actually had RAIN today-yay for us! We have also had big fat snowflakes, while it was raining. Crazy, but beautiful and much needed.

Tammy said...

LOL...I never got that. Doesn't it seem backwards? I mean,if the sun is out, 6 more weeks of winter...if the weather sucks, spring is on the way???

Gone Country said...

Hahaha! Pig II is cute (even though she's a diva)! I'm missing Pig I...

mick said...

haha! I do wish better weather for you - but not summer too soon please! That would mean we would be into winter and I do not want that yet!

Margaret said...

Yes, a suntan she would have got here too. It was 60 degrees at least today!

And as for textures... it is so fun, I WARN you now. :)

polkadotpeticoat said...

I needed this laugh....too funny!

Joe said...

HA! Pretty cool pig :). We've had great weather the last couple of weeks also.

MarmePurl said...

Party Animal, that one.

Paula said...

We finally had sun after a pea soup morning. Heck I don't care if we have more winter to stall off summer.

Sharon said...

We had yet another beautiful day, I can handle 6 more weeks of this! LOL! I know it won't last....

Elaine said...

Too cute!! We pay no attention to Phil because we know we have a couple months more winter here. We do have groundhogs in Fairbanks, but they don't poke their noses out until late March or early April.

Sall's Country Life said...

I just hope that means 42 more chances of rain for you Texans! Love the diva pics (maybe the heat is getting the best of y'all, but I love a dry sense of humor!)

c. Joy said...

At first glance I thought your diva was a rabbit - I mistook the sunglasses for ears. I've been out in the pollen today and I'm a little blurry eyed. Feels like Spring to me.

MarieElizabeth said...

I'm fine w/6 more weeks, if the winter stays like it has been here!

Deb said...

lol..love it...watching the movie Ground hogs day right now...

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

So very cute !

Rita said...

So funnnny!!!!
No sun here today. Fog and clouds.
Hummm?

Farm Girl said...

that is so funny, she looks great. I really like Pig's sunglasses.

rainfield61 said...

So cute yet so real.

Arija said...

Good on her, just mind she doesn't get sunburn and develop melanomas.

Gillian Olson said...

Very funny, love those sunglasses.

SquirrelQueen said...

Now that's my kind of ground hog. The other ones jump if they see their own shadow and hide from the sun. Gotta soak up those rays and enjoy it!

Angela said...

That's so funny! I've been thinking about Pig all day today! lol Wondering if she's came out yet because it is so hot here this week that it's just crazy! If we have 6 more weeks of this Winter Spring then gee we didn't get a Winter at all here where I live! lol We will go from Spring to Spring!

Love your Pig II!

Liz said...

Haha! Hilarious. Love your humour :)
Thanks for making me smile on this dreary but HOT day in Australia.

Kerry said...

omg if only I had a groundhog! But it was sunny here also, so maybe it doesn't matter.

Randy said...

Love those glasses!

Kelly said...

...hehehehe...cute!

SweetMarie said...

This is the BEST! You have me laughing so hard! I LOVE your sense of humor!!!

gowestferalwoman said...

holdingmoments said...

Brilliant!!

Carletta said...

Too cute!!

ruma said...

Hello, TexWisGirl.

  The coldest winter will be melted by your warm heart.
  The works gently accept all visitors.

  I praise your creative art sense.
  The prayer for all peace.
  
  Have a good weekend.
From Japan, ruma ❃

BlueShell said...

Oh...she's cute...and a bit fat, isn't she? But she is lovely...a Diva for sure
BS

NicoleB said...

Hilarious!

Stewart M said...

Looks that young man has spent a bit too long in a good paddock!

If push ups are good enough for the first lady - I think he needs to do a few as well!

Cheers - Stewart M

heyBJK said...

LOL! I don't understand why this one didn't make the news! That's pretty darned official. Apparently, we're supposed to have six more weeks of winter, but we've never really had winter in the first place.

Ellie said...

He he that made me laugh!!!

joo said...

You've made my day with this post:)

Mary Howell Cromer said...

This is too wildly CUTE!!!

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

oh my word, this is adorable!!

smiles-thanks for putting a smile on my face.

edenhills said...

Too cute! Groundhogs here say six more weeks of winter. I guess that means we'll have a total of six weeks.

Terry's Tete-a-tete said...

Here Wisconsin's Sun Prairie Jimmy did not see his so we're all hoping he is correct one.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Ha ha! Were you thinking of Pig 1 yesterday? I sure was!

bailey-road.com said...

So cute!
She certainly saw her shadow here - bright blue sky, not a cloud in sight.

Paula said...

This made me think of the little guy in Caddyshack!
(The groundhog, not Bill Murray... *haha*)

Sandra said...

so silly so funny and I am laughing my head off. love it. Pig II is adorable and looks soooo good in her shades. we got suntans too.

Texan said...

Dudette, I mean it was, sunshine bring it on!

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

teeheeeheee! =)

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Some parts of Europe are getting slammed while we are fortunate to have Spring-like conditions. SPF-20?

Michelle Renee said...

ROFL!!!! Too funny. I didn't realize I laughed out loud until my daughter came to see what was so funny! :D

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Wouldn't have seen her shadow here either -- a bit cloudy, though warm. :)

Pat Tillett said...

You have to enjoy the sun when and where you find it. No ground hog issues here, no winters here...

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

Haha! So cute!

Marvin said...

LOL! Plenty of sunshine here on Thursday as well, but today it's raining.

pattisjarrett said...

Now there's a rodent with class!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

LOL! That is so cute!!!

Robin said...

T, hilarious! Like you're really worried about 6 more weeks of winter. It would be a welcome relief to how many day of +100 degree weather!

Susan said...

You are so funny! How do you think up stuff like this?

Kathy said...

And I'm thinking: I didn't know we had groundhogs in our part of Texas!

Raindrops and Daisies said...

How cute is that!!!

You have made me smile this afternoon!

wayside wanderer said...

That's funny! And cute.

Southwest Arkie said...

Too funny-I hope we aren't in for 6 more weeks of winter, but this morning's 40 degrees sent me digging for my warm socks. (And I was just getting used to those balmy 70s too!)

Rose said...

hahaha!!! Good post!
