Unadilla Bill, Nebraska's Official Groundhog
The official Groundhog Day was 2+ weeks ago. Brenda did a nice post on her blog on that day, featuring this very same card.
Since I'm, oftentimes, late for just about everything, it seems fitting that my own Groundhog Day post would be 2+ weeks late!
I had hoped to find the real Bill the groundhog that I had read about.....
..... and I did find him, at his home, The Bar, which is a real bar. He had been resting on top of that cooler case in the background.
Unfortunately, Bill, unlike his cousin Phil in Punxsutawney, Pennyslvania, is no longer alive and well.
But still, from what I was told, Bill is a good sport about it, and participates in the town's yearly groundhog parade and festivities on the first Saturday of February.
