Ding, Dong...

Ding, Dong, the hog is dead!
And not only in Oz land. We really think the groundhog is dead this time. No dug up holes, not a trace.
No red slippers sticking out under any houses either.

And talking about red shoes I just read this nonsensical stuff on the fantastic internet (my emphasis):
Wearing red socks or shoes helps remind us to ground our bodies. Because red is a grounding color, seeing red on your feet throughout the day will serve as a reminder to bring your attention back to the physical body. This is especially helpful if you tend to ignore your lower extremities. By consciously focusing on the color red at your feet you will be energetically distributing your energies downwards, anchoring your energies to the earth, thus creating a better balance within yourself. Isn't it interesting that the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz story was wearing ruby red slippers? She got grounded when a house fell upon her while she was flying through the air. It was also the magical tapping of the red slippers together that brought Dorothy back home to Kansas.

Well, this groundhog appears to be quite grounded right now. Wow. Maybe the hog went home to Kansas too? I wonder if this is why some people refuse to wear red shoes? I love red shoes.

Of course we have a new growing problem in the little cute orphan rabbit that have decided our lawn is the perfect place to live - wonder when it will discover our lettuce patch?

(PS. The hog's shoes are the real thing, the actual slippers Judy Garland wore in the movie. Don't ask me how he got them).

Haha, I love how they refer to fairy tales to support their theory. Maybe you can do that in your next paper?

Oh, well, but I already do! I am just not telling anybody.
