Just heard from Gary and Co. at Gator Country. It's official, Al had his KFC!!
You say Groundhog, I say woodchuck. I'm just glad I'm not in Pennsylvania.
The Puxatony 'hog may know about weather up north, but I'd rather listen to Big Al.
Big Al lives at Gator Country near Beaumont. He is:
1. a lot bigger than the Yankee hedgehog (try the largest alligator in captivity at 1,000 lbs) and
2. He has also proven more accurate -- like 100% accurate -- in his "winter's over or not?" predictions, according to owner and gator-rescuer/naturalist, Gary Saurage.
Every year on Groundhog Day, they offer Big Al his most-favorite-food: Kentucky Fried Chicken. Alligators are genetically unable to eat until all danger of winter freezes is past. Their bodies simply cannot digest food until warm weather is assured.Anybody can have a groundhog....
Did anybody see our Farmer's Market write up in the GCDN? Rave reviews! All the hard work put in by Jennifer and Dave is paying off. Great job y'all!
Mardi Gras Parade next Saturday followed by Red Beans and Rice Popeye's style at the Club House. I have a few openings for Mancakes. Drop me a line.
