We spent some time coming up with some cool names for her blog but had to find one that wasn’t already taken. We got her up and running. She has 2 posts already and has only been actives since this morning. Rock on Aunt Sandy.
Then I helped Ohiophotgrl with some home work and we went to the post office. We cleaned the house a bit….it’s been a busy day.
As always we are smiling…

Feb 24 tax guy and a night out

I had to make some calls today one to the tax guy…

I decided to text him instead…Bruce B is our tax man. He works at Belmont Tax Associates on Watervliet in Dayton, Ohio. If you need your taxes done and done right he is your guy!
Then we ran errands and I shrunk really small so she wouldn’t find me so I could go too….

Do you think she will find me?
I snuck out while she was in the bathroom and looked at the menu.

Feb 23,2014 our home

So as Ohiophotgrl and I were trying to find a place for Jessie, Buzz and Woody to stay when we look up and see this…..(had to grab my camera.)

What a great spot. They can go undetected, the dogs can’t bug them and they have a great view.
So now everyone has a special place.
One problem down but my biggest question is:
I wonder what were gonna do tomorrow?

Feb 19,2014 cheering on the Tartans

Sorry we haven’t been around much lately…..we are working on a big project for ohiophotogrls school.
Tonight I went with Mrs Sherrie to A basketball game. We were cheering on the Sinclair Tartans.

Feb 2, 2014 groundhog update

DAYTON —
As another winter storm approaches the area, people are wondering when the cold temperatures will come to an end. According to two of Ohio’s furry forecasters, spring is just around the corner.
At Dayton’s Boonshoft Museum on Sunday afternoon, Rosie the groundhog did not see her shadow, signaling an early start to spring.
In Marion, Buckeye Chuck made a similar prediction this morning.
However, the nation’s top groundhog disagreed with his fellow marmots.
At sunrise, Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil forecasted six more weeks of winter, according to his handlers.
According to legend, if the groundhog sees its shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last another month-and-a-half. If he doesn’t see it, an early spring is on the way.
We are keeping our fingers crossed that it will be an early spring but we are not holding our breath!

Feb 1,2014 basketball day

They won the game!
Then we went to lunch!
I love Saturdays!
Hope that groundhog doesn’t see his shadow tomorrow.

Jan 31,2013 socks

Today I got to raid Ma’s sock drawer.

It must be a kid thing I couldn’t find one sock that matched. Maybe the dryer ate the other sock. The world may never know!

Feb 2,2014 groundhogs day

From The Associated Press this morning:

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. —

Emerging from his lair on Super Bowl Sunday, groundhog Punxsutawney Phil couldn’t predict the winner of the big game but his handlers said he was sure of his weather forecast: There will be six more weeks of winter.

Pennsylvania’s famed groundhog was roused from slumber at 7:28 a.m. Sunday and, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, directed handler Bill Deeley to a scroll that contained the prediction — along with a Super Bowl reference.

As usual, thousands of fans turned out on Groundhog Day to see the furry rodent, the most famous of a small group of groundhogs said to forecast the weather.

Legend has it that if the groundhog sees his shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last another month-and-a-half. If he doesn’t see it, spring will come early.

In reality, Phil’s prediction is decided ahead of time by a group called the Inner Circle, whose members don top hats and tuxedos for the annual ceremony on Gobbler’s Knob, the tiny hill in the town for which he’s named about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

The prediction fell on Super Bowl Sunday for the first time. The closest the game previously came to coinciding with Groundhog Day was in 2009, when the just-down-the-road Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Arizona Cardinals 27-23 the night before Phil’s forecast.

This year’s NFL championship pitting the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., will be the Super Bowl’s 48th installment, while Phil has been predicting the weather since 1886.

In a nod to the game, Phil’s forecast came in the form of a Super Bowl-themed poem:

“A Super Bowl winner I will not predict,

But my weather forecast, you cannot contradict,

That’s not a football lying beside me

It’s my shadow you see

So, six more weeks of winter it shall be!”

This year’s Groundhog Day celebration marks a winter that has brought extreme cold to vast stretches of the country, including areas of the South wholly unaccustomed to severe winter weather. A snow and ice storm paralyzed Atlanta and other Southern cities last week.

Phil has now seen his shadow 101 times while failing to see it 17 times, according to the Inner Circle. There are no records for the remaining years.

The National Climatic Data Center has put Phil’s forecasts to the test and found them sorely lacking, declaring the groundhog has “no predictive skill.”

“It really isn’t a ‘bright’ idea to take a measure such as a groundhog’s shadow and use it as a predictive meteorological tool for the entire United States,” the data center says on its website, helpfully if somewhat obviously.

Other prognosticating groundhogs include Staten Island Chuck in New York and General Beauregard Lee

******update******

In Marion, Buckeye Chuck did not see his shadow due to cloudy skies and snowfall, meaning spring is just around the corner.

Rosie our Dayton, Ohio grand hog will check out her shadow in a little while we will update again!

So I think I’ll stay in and read a book and wait for the Superboel game to come on!
