Do you know the only mammal to have a day named in his honor? Yes, it is the lowly groundhog, sometimes called the woodchuck.
The groundhog’s day is February 2. Now, it’s not a federal holiday and nobody gets off work. But, to have a day named after you is quite a feat.
Groundhog Day Trivia

- Farrah Fawcett, Tom Smothers, James Joyce, Graham Nash, Christie Brinkley, and my son were all born on Groundhog Day.
What do you think Clay Aiken is doing this Groundhog Day? I wonder if he is at home, sorting things…one box is labeled NYC, another NC, and another Goodwill!! Or maybe he is in New York, working hard. I do hope he had fun watching the Super Bowl and just used yesterday as a day to have some fun. Wherever he is and whatever he is doing, I hope Clay is having a great day!
Pictures of Clay always make me smile. How about you?
Do you remember these appearances?
They certainly are diverse!
What an exciting life!
Do you remember these occasions ?
All of them! What fond memories I hope he did relax and watched the Super Bowl with his family and friends.

Thanks for all the photos of Clay to brighten a snowy Ground Hogs Day. Clay has certainly had a lot of different hair styles and colors over the years. Hard to choose the one I like best.
