Groundhog Day...sort of

Just a day of cleaning house and prepping the woo room for guests this weekend.  On this day last year we began a 68 hour stretch of below freezing temperatures.  The high last year on February 2nd was 26°.  It was quite a bit warmer today.

In honor of Groundhog day, a new tradition has been born here at The Southwest Texas Alternative Energy and Sustainable Living Field Laboratory - thanks to this from my friend JD in Denver

From the Barometric Burro of TFL:
I, Field Lab Floppy, forecaster from the Fizzle Flats, robustus donkey of the desert, being of sound mind and lengthy manhood, hereby declare... "No shadow from my dangler here, so an early spring shall soon appear!"

the Dirk Diggler of the Desert - a weather forecaster, a watch-donkey... is there anything Super F is not capable of?... besides giving a thumbs up.

You aren't planning to stuff him like Freddy (or Trigger) are you?
If you are streaming his "dangler shadow"show live, the FCC, DoJ. Homeland Security, PETA & Dita Von Teese will all be coming your way... whoa, Nelly.
Different Freddie: he saw his shadow....

Floppy is just doing his porn show again...and ya'll thought his name was Floppy because of his ears.
Doc Johnson ought to have the Floppy model right next to the "Johnny Wad".........

I seem to be picking up on a vibe here. My "burro gaydar" is lighting up like Broadway. Does Mr Floppy always seem to be "happy to see you"? Does he follow you around in that state? (Not talking about Texas here). Does he follow you into the "woo room"? When you run an errand, does he "pine for your return"; standing in front of your door in that state? (Again, NOT Texas). Can't he quit you? If so, you, JW, may have a gay burro on your hands, a burro "light on his hooves". You may need to locate a burro "pal" for him. I hear Marcus Bachmann is good with animals; buying sunglasses for doggies 'n such-- maybe you could get him to pay you a visit to "pray away the burro gay". Or you could just let Mr Floppy choose your wardrobe for you- you'd look sharp.
