Tuxie Tunnel, Pawsome Blogger Award, Ground Hog Day War

Hey - what's this groundhog doing popping out of my tunnel!



Hi Pals,


Happy Tuxie, Tunnel, Pawsome Blogger Award, Day.  Whew - that's a mouthful!!    

My good buddy George Cloony over at Cloony's Nom Nom Fund presented my tunnel with the Pawsome Blogger award.    We don't have that many blogging kitties with tunnels and the ones that I know of already have this award, so he said we could present to any pawsome blogger.  
I has so many PAWsome Bloggies that I follow, it's hard to come up with just three to pass this on to.  But - here goes:

I present this award to these pawsome bloggers:

     1.  @Pandafur  at  http://pandafur.blogspot.com

        2.    @ShawneeShepard  http://www.blogger.com/profile/05921986900409656655


If you are not familiar with their blogs, go over and take a peek, and I'm sure you'll agree.   

Enjoy your award pals - it's well deserved.  

On a side note:   GASP - did you hear about the disagreement among two groundhogs - the one in Pennsylvania  (Phil) that gets all the national publicity and our local Wisconsin groundhog (Jimmy) located in Sun Prairie - a mere 2 hours from our house.    
It might be fun to be a ground hog.  I'd like to be Jimmy.
Now we prefer to believe Jimmy of course because he's a local dude.   In fact, he even has his own website:    http://groundhogcentral.com/   He says it will be an early spring, and we believe him.   It's early February and we has green grass in most of our back yard.   Our temperature highs have been hovering around 40, whereas normal would be in the 20's with at least a foot or two of snow on the ground.   And I have been asking to have a window open cuz i want to whiff spring air.  M even opened a window for me a couple of days - well she left it open for about 15 minutes before saying we were wasting too much money in letting the heat in the house escape outside.   Humans can be so unreasonable sometimes.   

Jimmy said we will not have 6 more weeks of winter, so I'm getting ready for spring by starting to shed my winter coat, and I refuse to snuggle with M at night and instead sleep by myself in her office chair.   Those are sure signs of spring.   The weather man even said we'd have spring like temperatures in the 40's the next 5 days.   Now I have to work on M a bit more to convince her to leave the window open a little longer.

Until next time pals,

Mario

Maxwell: We agrees wif Jimmy too! Allie sez 6 more weeks of winter is Simply Unnacceptable and Pawxatonie Phil is being Unreasonable!

FaRADaY: Speaking of Unreasonable - OUR Mommy won't open OUR windows either? *shakes head* What's a kitty to do?!?

Beth said...

Our Peoria groundhog Gertie said spring was just around the corner and I believe!

Max the Quilt Cat said...

It's almost never winter down here, so the groundhogs took the day off. It was 70 today. I can live with that.

Have a great day.

pawhugs, Max

Congrats on your award, Mario! Here in Michigan we have Woody the Woodchuck and she...yes, Woody is a girl...predicted that we would have an early spring! So we're going with her!!

Prancer Pie said...

We've had absolutely NO winter so far! So, we're ready to move on to spring! Concats on the award. xoxo

Congratulations on your award! Sounds like you are all ready for an early spring. :)

Clooney said...

Oh. My. Cod. A Groundhog is the best thing ever to appear so far in a tunnel! That is just pawsome! Loved your post Mario and that Jimmy sounds like he's got it going on so spring is surely around the corner!

Whisppy said...

Groundhog cat - haven't I seen that before?

Glogirly and Katie said...

Jimmy knows his stuff. Jimmy is never wrong. Jimmy likes talking about himself. (if you're a Seinfeld fan, you'll get it...if not, well, you can just make a puzzled face.)

Well I think you have to go with what your local groundhog is telling you... although here in the UK I was starting to believe it would be an early spring and now we've got mounds of snow everywhere!!

Kolo Martin said...

Love the groundhog look! I always think of groundhog day even though we don't have it. You have so many cool traditions in the US!

Our mom must be losing her head! She thought she had commented on how much we liked your ground hog & what an improvement on the species it is. We kept telling her she didn't, finally we made her look. Now she is sorry cause she didn't mean to ignore you. She was saying "Mea Culpa!" but we think she's "Mea Crazy"!
