My mom's good friend had several cockatoos and when they laid an egg and I hatched, they gave me to my mom and dad. Even the vet said I was the ugliest bird she'd ever seen since my bird mom plucked me when I was 3 months old! But see, the Ugly Duckling story is really true!!! hehehe

  Hi Picabo
heard that they celebrate putting a tiny plastic baby in a cinnamon cake in new orleans which is similar i guess to what they celebrate where you live. i think the baby is suppose to be baby jesus and don't know why they want to bake him in a cake. would think the plastic would be toxic. it has something to do with lent. wonder if they put him n soup too.

we haven't been on BC because our dad is having a lot of health issues and as soon as he hears mom go to use the computer he needs her for something. mom then loses her traIN of thought, which isn't hard for her to do, while helping dad. tonight was better because he seems to be feeling better. it did get cold out. i think its 18 right now but at least we didn't get much snow.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

Poor Liv, she still has pink eye & she also has a stomach virus! It hasn't been a good week for her! Mom hasn't been on BC the past 2 days because we were taking care of Livi and she spent the night last night. I love the grandkiddos sooooo much, but they don't like me chasing them around, but they do like giving me kisses!

We are in for some really cold weather. Between now and Sunday the high temps will be in the teens and low 20's and the low temps will be in the single digits! On Saturday the temp will be around 11°/-2° and very windy & with the wind chill it could feel like -20°! That's way too cold!

Yes, mom was glad that Peyton Manning and the Broncos won the Superbowl! We're pretty sure that he's retiring & good for him to go out on top!

I hope your day was a good one!

Blow harder buddy...Heehee!!!

You can blame this one on mommy!!!! Yesterday she was supposed to color her feathers and she got caught up doing something else...

Cleaning the house...


So today as I chat with you my mommy has a new color in her feathers.It smells! Now she's playing catch up.

On my blogs? The nerve of her!!!

The weather is hot and mother Nature sure can be rude at times.
Do you agree with me???

Sorry I got to make this short,like I said blame mommy on this one.

  Morning Mr Picabo-from Jen & Christy
...we alo love Ms Kookie, she is so pretty! We have had a very tough couple of days, but things are starting to look a little bit better at our home, the furnace is temporarily repaired, and the TV digital converter box is working again! My goodness, here it is hump day again, and dad's nurse is coming today to recheck a few things about him and reinstate his VA Home Health Care approval! It is bitter cold here with temps of well below zero, and it will be that way all week, come on Spring time! We all feel sorry for the outside birdies, they are still looking around for food, so we feed them, they need to maintain their body heat! Have a great Wednesday, and give our love to all in your warm and happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Hump day love from Jenny, Christy, Ms LaLo, Ziggy, & daddy Dallas

I just love your pic! There are so many good ones on the milonga page, it's tough to vote. We're trying to make sure everybirdie gets a vote or two, but there are so many couples, we're not going to get that chance.
Peppy thanks you for the vote.
Maxine and Falco have been giving mom fits with their shredding lately. Falco likes phone books, and Maxine loves cardboard. Falco finished a phone book yesterday. Mom won't give her a whole one, unless it's the skinny local one, because she can't wait to get in there and shred. She just gives her 25 - 30 pages at a time. Maxine is shredding boxes, paper towel rolls, and anything else mom puts in there. Needless to say, it makes cage cleaning more of a challenge.
Yesterday we did sheets and towels, and not much else. We've been getting what the weather guy called snow globe snow. That means squalls followed by some calm, then more squalls. Mom got the driveway and walkway cleared this morning before walking the dogs, and we're hoping they stay clean. The snow is supposed to clear up today sometime.
Well, there's not much else new, so I'm just going to wish you a very good day, full of attention, cuddles, and scritches. Try not to get into too much trouble. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Vote Laka for BOTM, Peppino, vote Laka for BOTM & Falco, vote Laka, 259145, BOTM.

  Hello Picabo~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. We are finishing up laundry and getting mom ready to go back to work tonight.
McKenzie is feeling happy today. I can tell because she keeps getting into trouble!hehehehehehe
Mom went to Costco yesterday. The problem with that is trying to find places to put the stuff. We have a case of applesauce sitting on the computer desk and cereal on the breakfast bar. The paper towels are on the dryer and there is a case of Starbucks White Chocolate Frap on the file cabinet. Those are for Jennifer. The freezer and pantry are full also. I know it sounds like a lot but mom only goes there every 2 or 3 months. Depends on how long that case of toilet paper lasts! There is a really big bag of broccoli in the fridge. Mom just won't give up! She knows I'm not going to eat it but since she is going to make me some chop I have a feeling she will sneak it in there. I'll just eat around it!hahahahaha
It's almost like Spring here today! I feel so bad for all those out east who are having to put up with snow. Wish you could all be here with me! Well you guys never get too cold so I know you're okay!
So what's up with the lights? Did your parronts ever figure it out?? It would freak me out! We always have the stove light on and night lights in the bathroom so that no one trips over Merlin in the middle of the night. He likes to lurk at night!!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big ole hug too!

What the Awk is going on here??? Today we are having very unseasonable hot weather...
99 Degrees.Not good!!! Us California birds are going to fry!!!

My flock and family wait all year for the cool weather and we get a tease!!!

A lot of birds say we are lucky but what they don't know is that we live in the central dessert where it's the hottest.

My mommy is supposed to put color on her head feathers today.Hopefully she gets it done.She doesn't like coloring her feathers but someones got to do it!!!!
Right???

Have an awesome day

Happy Monday!!! We are looking at weather that's too warm once again...
Mommy couldn't stand it yesterday and in the next few days it will be warmer...
This is supposed to be winter and we are wondering what happened to it???

This is quite ironic on how mommy starts to get better because the heat went away and now it's back.All 88 degrees of it!!!

This is so not right for us California birds!!!!

Other than that we had an awesome BBQ with green chili and Steak along with blue cheeseburgers and BBQ beans with fry bread.Yummy!

Just a quick note tonight, mom is watching the Superbowl game. She would like to see the Broncos win, would like to see Peyton Manning go out on top!

Change of plans, mom & Liv aren't starting the crystals until Tuesday. Sis called this morning, Liv has pink eye, she's the last one in her family to get it! Mom wants to wait a couple days because her eye is swollen shut! I sure hope mom doesn't get it!

I hope your day was a good one!

I hope you are having a great day! We are having a little Puppy Bowl party. Don't really care about the Super Bowl. We just hope it's a fun game and that everyone has a great time.
Mom has been filing the papers we sorted out this week. That is one big job done. Now she just has to make sure everyone keeps up with filing! There is a big box of papers for dad to go through when he gets home. I'm sure he will just love doing it!
Mom has 2 more nights so we are going to enjoy them! Jennifer is home and she is watching Agents of Shield. We have seen them but she hasn't. I don't mind seeing them again.
I hope you have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Picabo,
Today I want to talk about where my mom is from. She grew up in a little town called Hilo pronounced (hee lo). The name of Hilo is an ancient one, its origins lost in the mists of time. One of the widely accepted origins is that Hilo was named for a famous Polynesian navigator, Hiro, perhaps in honor of his great skill in bringing his people to this rich and fertile place.

The first night of the lunar month, just following the new moon, is known as Hilo. The think crescent moon is on the eastern horizon as the sun rises, its shape reflected in the curve of Hilo Bay's crescent shaped black sand beach.

No story of Hilo is complete without mention of the three names for Hilo. Hilo-one refers to the part of Hilo fronting the black sand beach, where shoreline activities like fishing and canoe launching took place. Hilo-Hanakahi, the fertile food-producing land south of Hilo Bay was named for a beloved chief who ruled here during a time of peace. The formidable cliffs that run north from the mouth of the Wailuku River are known as Hilo-pali-ku. Hilo was considered waiwai, or wealthy, due to its abundance of fresh water.

A charming folk tale has long been told linking Hilo to King Kamehameha, a great warrior, whose chief ambition, which he lived to realize, was to become the ruler of all the Hawaiian Islands. Naturally, he had numerous enemies, and he never remained long in one place for fear that the some of them might learn about his whereabouts and attack him.

Okay now for some fun stuff. Today is Sunday and it is spelled Lapule pronounced (la-poo-lay) in Hawaiian. The month is February and it is spelled 'Ianuali pronounced (yah-new-ah-lee) in Hawaiian. Have you got it? :)

Just say it slow and it will come, soon you all will be eggsperts in speaking Hawaiian.

Tomorrrow is spelled i ka la 'apopo pronounced (ee kah lah ah-poh-poh) in Hawaiian.

We shall finish or pau/(pow) in Hawaiian with good afternoon or aloha awakea (ah-low-hah ah-vah-kay-ah)or (midday).

Mahalo a Nui Loa (ma-hah-low ah noo-ee low-ah) or Thank you very much for your love and support.

Here's a vote for you and hope you all have a great Lapule afternoon! :)

Love,

  Hi Picabo & Squeaky,
Tonight I want to talk about Madame Pele, the volcano Goddess of Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Legend has it that the lava flow will never come down to the Hilo side or the Kona side as long as the "Hawaiians" are in check. So to speak.

That's why there are Hula Halaus that have ceremonies at the volcano to leave offerings of food and other stuff but no hooman sacrifices. Which is good. :)

There are many legends at the volcano observatory that have written testimony from hundreds of tourists that have taken a trinket from the land and have fallen into lots of bad luck.

Be it a rock or black sand or something minute, everything from the Aina or land has to stay here. Once taken off the island the person or persons will have terrible terrible bad luck.

Many of them had since sent those things taken sent back to the island ASAP.

There are warning signs about taking anything off the island. All the written testimony proves that the legend is true.

Tourist beware, or prepare to have terrible bad luck. Indeed the Madame Pele spirit of the "Aina" or land is so true and strong.

That's like Mr. Glen Grants stories in his book "Chicken Skin" tells all and then some it's very true.

Happy weekend everyone and a vote for you too.

Love & Aloha from Hawaii. :)

Thank you for you votes and support.

I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
It sounds like your new room is going to be so awesome! I think your mom did a great design and it's going to look so cool! I hope I get to see some pictures!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

I want to give a very big thank you to SweetPepper & her sweet mom for making my awesome Valentine's Milonga pic! Thank you sooooo much!!!

Mom left for 1 1/2 hrs today to get some supplies for Livi's science fair project. Mom is going to her house tomorrow morning to start working on sugar crystals. Livi is in a girls' basketball league so mom has to work around her practice schedule. I'm sure not going to like being in lockdown every time she leaves! Mom's world is supposed to revolve around ME!

mom spent all afternoon grooming our older cat. first she tried to get as many mats off of him without pulling her hurting him. she tried to cut them in half and then pull them apart and then try and brush them out. one of the mats had a stick in it. then mom gave him a bath with tearless conditioning cat shampoo and then put a coconut cat conditioner in his fur. then she tried to brush some more mats out. then after she towel dried him she blow dried him and he seemed to enjoy that. his fur wasn't dirty at all and he doesn't look any different after all that but he must feel better. then mom wanted to brush him some more but she misplaced his brush or else he hid it from mom so she would stop. then after dinner she gave me a nice shower and then bow dried me. my feather feel very soft now and i spent about an hour preening myself after wards. Boo Boo watch all this and thought to herself thank god its not me

I hope you had a wonderful day! It was busy around here but that was just because of puppy duty. McKenzie got into a lot of trouble today. She just couldn't seem to sit still. Mom was chasing after her most of the day! She still is! McKenzie just doesn't want to leave Merlin alone. Mom doesn't want to keep Merlin locked up all day and McKenzie really needs to learn to leave him alone.
I decided she was looking pretty hungry so I started throwing seeds, nuts and pellets down for her! Mom didn't think it was a very good idea. She swept it up and by the time she dumped it, I had thrown more down. Mom swept it up again and then dumped the rest. I got some veggie instead. That was my plan all along!hahahahaha
Obviously, we didn't get much else done. Mom was working on cleaning the oven. Since we don't use any chemicals around here it takes a bit longer to do. She should be able to finish it up tomorrow.
Your picture is so awesome!!! Did you enter the contest?? I'll have to go by and see!
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Mom went over to see her granddaughter Olivia for 3 hrs to discuss her science fair project. Mom had the nerve to put me in lockdown! Livi is so excited to be growing crystals for her project! Mom showed her different crystals on websites. They are going to do at least 10-12 different crystals. Mom said that I don't get to help at all...how rude! She said that boiling water and birdies don't mix! For the crystals that will be made using chemicals will be done over at Livi's house...NEVER any chemicals used around me! Mom is going supply shopping tomorrow and Livi & she will start working on crystals over the weekend. The science fair is on March 7th, so hopefully they will get a lot made by then!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Picabo,
That's a cool picture! :)

Well, so far we've gone to the north shore of Oahu and seen the big 24 foot waves and boy was it windy! :)

Today we are going to Hanauma Bay (pronounced Hanau-ma). It's a nice cove that's a fish and aquatic sanctuary. It used to be free but now everyone has to pay to go in.

Mom has passed by and from the hill looking down the water is prestine blue and clear. Before you could feed the fishes and they sold frozen peas for you to feed the fishes. Mom heard that all the fishes are tame since they are fed regularly. They come up and rub your legs as you are in the water. Never heard of anyone getting bitten by them tame fish. You never know one might just get a little too greedy and take a chunk of flesh to see if it tastes good.

Anywho, maybe when one of the BC parronts come down to Hawaii, mom will actually have a reason to go there and feed the fishies.

The picture of Hanauma Bay is in my gallery thanks to Cookie's mom, Momma Mary. :)

Love and warm hugs to ya'll in the cold states.

Also a vote for you.

I hope your day was fabulous! I had a pretty good one. I helped mom go through more papers today! Mom found tax returns from before she was married!!! She has been married for nearly 34 years!hahahahahaha Ian said it was pretty impressive. Mom said it was really bad of her to hang on to stuff that old! It's all shredded and gone now. We do know that McKenzie will bark at the paper shredder! Mom brought her over to it so she knows it's not a scary thing.
Mom made a trip over to the Goodwill and deposited a bunch of stuff! She is very pleased that we got rid of so much stuff! There were things mom didn't even know we had and hopefully someone else will be happy to have them!
Ian took mom to Chipotles for lunch. She loves having salads there. The manager gave them drinks and chips for free since they come in there so often. That was so nice of him!! They have had a lot of bad press lately but mom have never had a bad experience there.
Mom checked her schedule for next week and she is not scheduled until Tuesday night! That means extra days of vacation for her! YAY!! Don't know if that will be the case but it's nice if it is!
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

What a beautiful day, our temps were 64°/47°, the average temps are 36°/21°! Tho it's going to cool down again, a high of 40° tomorrow.

Mom is going to be busy for the next couple weeks. She'll be helping Livi, her 7 yr old granddaughter with her science fair project. They are going to make several different kinds of crystals. Mom said that I get to taste the rock candy crystals, yummm!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Avast there good matey!
I’ve come by to invite you to my 11th Hatchday Pirate Party over on me page. There ye will find in the “How I met my owner” section of my profile some limericks that I’ve brought back from the far corners of the world to share with you! If ye feel compelled to write some words of yer own on my page, please try to keep it clean & with the rules of this good BC in mind. Garrr….there were many that I couldn’t share with ye because of it being a bit risqué . It wouldn’t be much of a “pirate” limerick without such things but pillaging & dismemberment will have to satisfy ye!

Bring a good appetite & be prepared for some ale & rum, lads & lassies! ’Tis a fair day fer turnin’ 11! (aye-aye). See ye real soon! Sam bows & waves with his pirate hat “goodbye”.

  Hi Picabo
Thank you again my dear friends for the Hatchday wishes and for BOTD honors! I had such a great Hatchday and it was wonderful to be queen for the day! Tho I must admit that I have my mom so well trained, she treats me like a queen every day!

Some friends asked me about two of my pics, so I'll answer in my blog.

In my one pic I chewed up two $20s. She put all the pieces into a baggie & went to her bank. Mom explained what happened & showed a pic of me. All the tellers came over to see the money shredding birdie & had a good laugh! Mom left with two unchewed $20s. Mom no longer leaves money on the table!

The other was about shreddable pinatas. They are my favorite toys! Mom always gets me a parrot & a horsie (or donkey). I always bite the face off first! Then I bite off the hanging string & destroy the rest of it on the floor!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Picabo,

How are you? It's Oz. Sorry I haven't been by but Mom was having a lot of problems with BC and when she could go on she said it was slow as you know what! Hope all is well. Mom went out to dinner with her Best Friend, Shirl and her whole Family on Sunday. They ended up at her Grand Daughter's House right near the Restaurant. It was a very nice day. Mom even had two White Russians at dinner and she hardly ever drinks except on occasion like a Party or Wedding, etc. Yesterday she spent the day running her errands. She's home with us today but tomorrow she's watching her Niece, Hope. Sat. she has her Brother, Dave's 50th Birthday. She'll get to see their Puppy, Puck again. Can you tell they are Hockey Fans LOL?? They also have a Boxer named Macy who keeps Puck in his place LOL! Oh Mom's Brother, Ed will be 60 tomorrow. Mom is 60 till the 21st of this month. So for about 2-1/2 weeks they are the same age LOL! Her Brother, Dave (50) and Brother, Rich (will be 51 on the 21st also) are also the same age for 2-1/2 weeks! Yes, Rich was born on Mom's 10th Birthday LOL! Then there's her youngest Brother, Jimmy is born in August and we tease him and call him the Bread Man's Kid LOL. We use to have one come around and sell door to door. Okay, here's a vote for you. Bye for now!

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

  Hello Picabo~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was busy around here. We are still going on with the spring cleaning and the back of the car is now filled with stuff for the Goodwill. Mom will have to drop that stuff off tomorrow so she can put more in there. McKenzie is in the back seat so anything we put there would be chewed up by the time mom got to Goodwill!
The kitchen and the dining room are done and now mom is working on her room. It's slow going since she can only do it when the puppy is taking a nap or at night when she is in her crate. McKenzie is a very curious girl and wants to see everything!
Dad is in Utah and says the weather is nasty. He he one of 28 trucks who are hauling the equipment for a show called Marvel Universe Live. It's got Spiderman and my favorite, Captain America. It's coming to Seattle after Utah but I don't think dad will be hauling the stuff again.
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a hug too!

Thank you my dear friends for the honor of BOTD! Thank you for the Hatchday wishes! Two special days in a row, what a blast!

My 20th Hatchday was very special! My Aunt Amy (mom's bestie) came over to help me celebrate! After mom, Aunt Amy is my favorite person! Mom got me my favorite cake (and hers) white almond with whipped cream icing! I'm sampling the icing in my profile pic! We didn't have ice cream, mom didn't want me having too much sugar! Mom and Aunt Amy sang Happy Hatchday to me then I got to eat some of my delicious cake, then I got to unwrap my presents! Aunt Amy got me a bag of walnuts & and a bag of almonds. Mom got me 2 lbs of pistachios, a wicker ball toy and 2 shredding toys. Both are fillable pinatas...one of which was shredded in about 10 minutes! I had so much fun I didn't want the day to end! Then I woke up to find out that I was BOTD, WOO HOO! I spent the day at the castle celebrating with King Jedi! Thank you again my dear friends!

I hope your day was a good one!

Who gave me vote 9000? Well today the computer was a mess earlier. It was the last zap from the power outage yesterday from the rain storm.My mommy has to turn off the computer to prevent any damage from happening.Well that last zap wiped out her Pop up blocker and she had to redo it.
I was so angry that I wanted to beat up the computer!!! I chased down the sucking machine this morning and my mommy had to turn it off and catch me.I gave her a good run heehee!!!
I think the sucking machine is scared of me cause it runs from me.
That's what makes it fun...
We enjoyed the rain and hope to get more.We really need it...

Have an awesome day
Love your buddy

Happy February ! Where did January go ? Only another day till we find out if spring is coming sooner or later . . . it's not been too bad a winter in my part of the world :) Even the wild birds aren't at the feeders this year like they were last - except for last week's snowstorm ! Mom and dad will be able to get up to the summer cabin in just a couple months to check out the house !

My Laura came to see me yesterday ! At Christmas she was teasing mom cause there weren't enough glasses that matched for everyone at the table (what's wrong with that eclectic look ?) So when she came across some while out shopping, she picked them up - now mom has 10 of each size - and they're pretty too ! Now mom just has to clean out the glass shelf in the cabinet !

Happy Monday - and enjoy your day :) love Cookie

Groundhog Day is coming
Phil is 130 years old, supposedly. The average groundhog lives to be between 6-8 years, but Phil takes a magical elixir every summer to extend his lifespan. The elixir also changes his appearance which explains why Phil may be grey one year and a youthful brown the next. the elixir does not work on humans. it just makes them fat and baldThe groundhog's name is Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators and Weather Prophet Extraordinary.When Phil comes out of his stump on Gobbler's Knob on Groundhog Day, he has a conversation with the president of the Inner Circle of the Groundhog Club in Groundhogese. The president then announces Phil's prediction. he's never wrong, however,if the president doesn't translate Phil's prediction accurately -- which is why sometimes it looks like Phil got it wrong.

Phil weighs about 20 pounds. He is 22 inches long, while the average groundhog weighs 12-15 pounds and is 20 inches long.Phil has had many wives. While Phil has an extended lifespan, his wives do not partake in the elixir so they pass away like normal groundhogs do. Phil always finds love again, though. Phil's current wife is called Phyllis While there is nothing wrong with Phil reproductively Phil has no children - he and his wife decided they are really too busy to raise a family. But that doesn't mean he does not love kids.He considers everybody under 127 years old his kids. Phil has such a full schedule he was not able to partake in the filming of the movie. In the Bill Murray movie he is played by a groundhog named Scooter - who bit the actor three times during filming.Handling Phil is a dangerous Groundhog Day task because of his fondness for biting.He once threatened to impose 60 weeks of winter if he didn't get some booze during Prohibition. Oat and honey granola bars are Phil's favorite food, in particular Nature Valley ones.He has a special car called the Philmobile. It's a little bus that houses members of the Inner Circle. Phil has a special seat on the outside, so he can be seen on parades.Oftentimes during summer parades, crowds will panic as the Philmobile draws through because they will see Phil lying flat on his back, legs in the air looking dead. But he isn't, this is just how groundhogs cool off Some people get upset when he calls for six more weeks of winter,but it's not his fault that he sees that coming."

Today was such a beautiful day! The sun was shining and it reached 64°, which was 28 degrees above normal! It will be around 50° until Wednesday, then back to winter weather!

Mom uploaded some new pics. For some reason they are all sideways & mom has no idea why! The one pic showcases my best "artwork"...I chewed up two $20s!

I had the most wonderful day today, I'll tell you all about it tomorrow!

Thank you for the Hatchday wishes! I'll tell you all about my special day tomorrow!

Groundhog Day Facts
In 1723, the Delaware Indians settled Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania as a campsite halfway between the Allegheny and the Susquehanna Rivers. The town is 90 miles northeast of Pittsburgh,. The Delawares considered groundhogs honorable ancestors. According to the original creation beliefs of the Delaware Indians, their forebears began life as animals in "Mother Earth" and emerged centuries later to hunt and live as men.
The name Punxsutawney comes from the Indian name for the location
"ponksad-uteney" which means "the town of the sandflies."
The name woodchuck comes from the Indian legend of "Wojak,
the groundhog" considered by them to be their ancestral grandfather.
When German settlers arrived in the 1700s, they brought a tradition known as Candlemas Day, which has an early origin in the pagan celebration of Imbolc. It came at the mid-point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Superstition held that if the weather was fair, the second half of Winter would be stormy and cold. For the early Christians in Europe, it was the custom on Candlemas Day for clergy to bless candles and distribute them to the people in the dark of Winter. A lighted candle was placed in each window of the home. The day's weather continued to be important. If the sun came out February 2, halfway between Winter and Spring, it meant six more weeks of wintry weather.If the sun made an appearance on Candlemas Day, an animal would cast a shadow, thus predicting six more weeks of Winter. Germans watched a badger for the shadow. In Pennsylvania, the groundhog, upon waking from mid-Winter hibernation, was selected as the replacement.Pennsylvania's official celebration of Groundhog Day began on February 2nd, 1886 . The groundhog was given the name "Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, and Weather Prophet Extraordinary'' and his hometown thus called the "Weather Capital of the World.'' His debut performance: no shadow - early Spring.

The legendary first trip to Gobbler's Knob was made the following year.
