Candlemas Day 2010

Candlemas Day is finally here at the Frog and PenguINN. The day we find out IF winter is ended OR if we should keep those woollies ready. We trekked down to the beach on our beautiful creek only to find a surprising sight. Now we seldom find bears here on the Shore let alone one playing hockey. He told us that he hadn't seen the muskrats but if we found them, he was ready for breakfast. We decided to move on. Further down the creek we ran across a skating monkey. As you can see, our morning was going from strange to absurd.

The monkey told us the same story, but without the reference to breakfast.While it was a nice interesting walk, we had found no signs of our Muskrats, Mike and Mandy. On our arrival at the town beach all we found were ducks. Now everyone knows that talking to a duck is useless. All they can do is tell bad jokes and puns which just quacks them up.

Of course if you happen to have brought a cow along at least you could have some milk and quackers. So we dejectedly walked back knowing that we would have 6 more weeks of winter. On the bright side we had a big pot of 'Granny's' possum chili simmering (from the Clampett Family Cook Book), fresh Banana Bread, and the DVD of "Ground Hog Day" to watch all day long. But even better than that, tomorrow will be Princess Day!!!!!!!!
