Breaking News

Remember, you read it here first.

I guess it's now officially winter.

The corn is dying out.

Winter??!!!! Can't we have fall first?

Scottius Maximus said...


Just remember, you read it here first.

Scottius Maximus is now the evil opposite of Punxsutawney Phil - he predicts the coming of winter.

Lucy, please help. Does Scottius have groundhog in his bloodline?

Scottius Maximus said...


I'm fat and furry, not unlike my good friend, Punxsatawneyus Philimus.

Fall is just a winter warm-up, a practice run if you will.

Yep, it's over. Winter's here.

Quipper said...

Scottius - somehow, though, spring isn't a warm-up for Summer. What's up with that?

Scottius Maximus said...


I don't know. It may have something to do with the fact spring only lasts a week or two and then we're in the clutches of summer heat.

It gives one pause to consider the mysteries of the seasons.

The son of a corn farmer who lives with me says it's called "drying out". Unless you were making some sort of a play on words related to "global warming".

Scottius Maximus said...


It's drying out 'cause it's dying out. Probably due to changing seasons.

And I could become a believer in "global warming" if this weather keeps up. It's unseasonably warm today, it being winter and all.
