Thursday Dose of Cute: A Very Happy Groundhog Day

Bert and Bear under the laundry line -
My four-footed laundry helpers are back in action.

Sunny, breezy, and 64 degrees on the second of February in Missouri? You can bet the laundry line was in full swing today!

More photos below. . .

As for the outcome of Groundhog Day, we thankfully (for the sake of Joe's blood pressure) haven't seen Chucky in years, but if he is still lurking around somewhere on the farm, he definitely saw his shadow—while we saw lots of laundry shadows. Another six weeks of winter is fine with me, though, since it doesn't really feel like we've had much yet.

©, where it sure looked and felt like winter last Groundhog Day—and any day without Chucky is a happy one. (No offense to woodchucks.)


  1. Too dogs would be so jealous! No playing outside today due to too much rain. And 77 degrees. UGH.

  2. Laundry helpers????? Seriously????

    (just too cute!)

  3. Well, there won't be any moles getting to your laundry with Bert and Lucky Buddy Bear on clothesline duty.

  4. Love the laundry shadows on your still GREEN grass! :)

December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
