Like today for instance; late this afternoon I received a text from Hannah.
One simple line, "Happy Punxsutawney Phil day Mom."
Here are some of my favorite lines from Groundhog Day. I am sure my dad would appreciate them as much as I do.
(Phil) "There is no way that this winter is *ever* going to end as long as this groundhog keeps seeing his shadow. I don't see any other way out. He's got to be stopped. And I have to stop him."
(Phil) "When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn't imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter."
(Phil) "This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype. Groundhog Day used to mean something in this town. They used to pull the hog out, and they used to eat it. You're hypocrites, all of you!"
HAPPY GROUNDHOG DAY
