Hot News Related – Punxsutawney Phil

     Groundhog Day 2011 is on its way on Wednesday, February 2, 2011.  Once Groundhog Day 2011 arrives, the whole world will know how much winter is left to come. Given the intense snowstorms this year, most of the Northeast is already sick and tired of winter. At this point, they may have already started praying to Punxsutawney Phil in hopes that he doesn’t see his shadow. But given the weather to come on Groundhog Day, even praying might not stop winter from staying for six more weeks.MORE HERE ON Punxsutawney Phil


Feb. 2, 2011: No Shadow for Groundhog, Early Spring Predicted

GOBBLER'S KNOB, Punxsutawney, PA -- The bucktoothed rodent known in these parts as Punxsutawney Phil failed to see his shadow this morning, which means, if you believe in this sort of thing, winter will be short and pleasant springtime weather is right around the corner!

 


Jan. 13, 2011 - Tracks

Hamilton, AL. - During the recent snow in Hamilton, Alabama, I came across these tracks in the yard.  I couldn't resist sharing these with my readers.

If you double click on the picture, you will find that one set of tracks belong to a bird and the other set belongs to a cat!  If you will do the same for the one below, you will see the Cat tracks ambling on along around the back house. 

It just seemed odd that we look at our yards every day and take for granted the little animals that come and go across them.

Just think how the paths cross but neither the cat nor the bird seemed to be aware of the other. Of course, they didn't happen at the same point in time...or the inevitable would have happened...the cat would have had a meal and we would have found feathers instead of tracks!

They both walked away, the feral Cat on the hunt, and the two birds as well.  (Their tracts differ, one hops and one runs, putting one foot ahead of the other.) 

Each oblivious of the other.  I can tell this because the tracks of the Cat never waver, they just proceed along the edge of the house and casually turn to the left around the house.

I thought, "this was a happy ending!" I hope you thought so too!

THE END!

Empty Flagpole! February 14, 2011 Sad Valentine's Present!

     Hamilton, AL - This was the former site of our National Guard Armory in Hamilton.  If you look to the left of the picture, (Double Click) you will see the Flagpole, which stands by the walkway, is empty now and the building is gone, demolished by men and machines.

One of, if not the oldest National Guard Armory buildings in the state has been demolished.  It is a sad day for most Hamiltonians and others too who came from different parts of Alabama to serve in this building.

I do not claim to be much of a writer but I can only say how I feel about this situation.

It has only been a few months since we rushed up to the Armory to help welcome home our Soldiers who had come back after being gone for so long.  That was a happy day!

There have been many more days like that, where loved ones who remained at home had rushed to the Armory to welcome home troops who had been in foreign lands for too long...But now, our Armory is gone and all we have left is memories.

I am sure there are some who remember having their Prom there (because we didn't have even one Gym back then). There were also birthday parties and dances and many more good times there.

If you are reading this and you have memories or pictures you want to share, please email them to jmays@49countynews.net
