Groundhog Day. February 2. Stirred some nostalgic memories of Punxsutawney, PA. Sleepy little town town not too far from the Ohio border. Got my first car from there, a 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera. ECT 4072. What memories, Shabbo. Yearly drives to Punxy for the vehicle registration. Remember the first time I drove into town, and realized this was the Groundhog Day place. Saw the big statue of Punxsutawney Phil in the town square. The little gas station store waiting for the work on the car to be done. Columbian coffee. Hot dogs. Chilling with Kirtiman in the meantime. The Beatles and Springsteen and Pink Floyd on the radio. Freezing cold mornings. Speedway replenishment. Dozing off behind the wheel. Good times, good memories. RIP, Shabbo.
