Saturday was my 62nd birthday.

(Insert Happy Belated Birthday, Davey Do! here)

Thank you. 

Being born on Groundhog Day and working as a Psych Nurse got me to thinking about the Groundhog being frightened by his shadow.

And what about after the Groundhog sees his shadow?

Thank you, sirI. BTW: Classic WKRP episode!

Since you're here, I want to proclaim a public note of appreciation for you, sirI. You have  been there to support and encourage me and for that I am very grateful.

Joe's been okay, also.

Just kidding-

Joe's been great and allows me to have fun with his avatar!

Thank you both!

He'd better apply for SSI!

I don't know about that, Emergent. Your suggestion of having the Groundhog apply for SSI brings up a point of contention, and I'd truly like to hear your opinion on this. 

If the Groundhog applies for SSI due to PTSD resulting from trauma experienced from working at his profession, won't that   allow him to be complacent, resulting in a stagnation of growth?

After being stabbed by a psychotic patient, I talked with the clinic's psychiatrist quite a bit. We talked about a lot of things, like working through psyche pain in order to grow. He believed

Following this psychiatrist's premise, perhaps the Groundhog wouldn't be motivated to get better if he's receiving money for his symptoms and just become a nonproductive parasite of society.

Speaking of Groundhogs and nonproductive parasites of society, I have always respected Groundhogs. I was born on their day and growing up in a rural area, I would see them now and again. They caused no problems and were content to be asocial.

In 1984, I moved to town, bought a newspaper, and lived in an apartment. A neighbor lady allowed me to clear a portion of her property and plant a garden for which she would get some fresh vegetables in return as payment.

It was then that I discovered Residential Groundhogs are not like Rural Groundhogs. The Residential Groundhogs would sneak into my garden at night like Polk Salad Annie's Brothers:

What do you think? Should the Groundhog face his fears or receive compensation for having them?

The groundhog should definitely face his fears and move on!! I have seen those type of people/patients who enjoy being ill because of the attention they receive and also they have next to zero responsibility for their life/actions and enjoy doing what ever they want with little to no consequences for their actions and are way to happy to take other peoples money. That being said, there are those who try but are unable to deal with the trauma they have experienced, so no judgements to those who try!

I also have a garden that is being over run by pesky rodents (gophers),  we have made a nice buffet for them, 😂.

And, last but not least, a very Happy Birthday to you!!!🎂

Well, as I've seen several of my co-workers celebrate their "birthday week" or "birthday month," I think we can call it not-so-belated?  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
