There’ll be two winters in the year.”

  1. I have one in my yard that has been there for years – he never seems to come out on groundhog day. It is so cool that you, Laura and your sister went.

  2. Great that you all were there but Flat Ruthie, too? Now that’s really special! I knew a couple of people that worked on the film. I still remember their praise prior to its release. I did enjoy it but, for me, if Bill Murray stars in a movie, I’m going to love it. We Cubs fans are thick as thieves. 🙂

    • It’s a movie I can watch repeatedly and always like thinking about. Hadn’t thought of it in baseball terms, 😀
