The Groundhog Cometh-- Part 1

And, I Will Be There to See Dear Old Woodstock Willie!!

It's that favorite time of the year for me again.  The Groundhog Day festivities in Woodstock, Illinois, where the famous movie was filmed, have kicked off as of yesterday with the annual pancake breakfast

This Wednesday, that certain varmint makes an appearance on the balcony of the Woodstock Opera Hpuse, which stood in for the Pennsylvanian Hotel in the movie.  Of course, Thursday, February 2nd is the actual Groundhog Day Prognostication at 7 AM.  I plan to be there and have breakfast afterwards at Angelo's in the Square where so much was filmed.

Afterwards, it is to Donovan's Reef I go where we will play NTN and watch the movie, "Movie-and-a-Beer" at its finest.

I plan to be at the Shake Off the Winter Blues Celebration at the Moose Lodge, just off the square.  It costs $15 for a buffet and then music from 8 to midnight with the group 28 Days.

More to Come.  --RoadDog
