So here’s something I’ve never really understood… Why do we here on the West Coast have to look 4000km East to see what’s up with Wiarton Willie when we have our own perfectly fine Vancouver Island Marmots?

Besides, Wiarton looks a little Silly.

Our own Vancouver Island Marmots are much more Handsome. Maybe VI Vinny?

If there are any Vinnies in the Alberni Valley then they would definitely not see their shadow today and judging by the daffodils poking up in our gardens they agree… EARLY SPRING. 🙂
