Gravy in the Graveyard

Starting a new project. A children's picture book.
Inspired by a groundhog I saw running through 
Prospect Hill Cemetery in York PA.
Groundhogs are not welcome in cemeteries. They dig their burrows underground and undermine the monuments. They collect things that don't belong to them, things from above ground and below ground. But in the big scheme of things, groundhogs have a place in the world. As I watched the groundhog scurry through the graveyard, I thought she looks alot like Punxsutawney Phil. Maybe they were related. But Punxsutawney Phil is trademarked, so I could not write a book about him. But I could write a book about his family . . .
