Snowmen....

..... well, thanks to the latest bit of snowfall, my front lawn is now decorated with two of the most hideous, lopsided, walking-dead looking snowmen that The World has ever seen..... evidently there is an artistic side to building snowmen that is lost once a snowman builder reaches a certain age...... anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it......

.... maybe it's like seeing ghosts?.... I was watching one of those crackpot paranormal thingies on TV last night, and they said that kiddies could see ghosts because of their "closeness" to "the other side"...... and that they'll continue to see ghosts until "societal cues" poo poo the idea of ghosties, and force the kid to act normal and stop being afraid of the monster in the closet... (mine was always under the bed, incidentally, but I digress..) .....

... then again, maybe I always just sucked at building snowmen but it never registered properly when I was sculpting them in my childhood front yard because I was six.......

..... anyway, I can now say that - at 37 years of age - I DID create two snowmen yesterday...... and while they both look as if they have recently downed a pint of vodka, they DO exist.....

.... hey, at least I donned my boots, gloves, fleece, and jacket and TRIED!.....

..... thankfully my camera is on the fritz...

Bullshit So Far

It's been quite a few years since I built my first snowman. It was about half a foot tall, sitting on my car's hood, which was the only place the snow wouldn't melt immediately. Living in Florida all those years, that was all the climate could manage to grace me with.

I ain't buying that "camera is on the fritz" shit anymore. I want to see the pictures.

Anyway, we got hammered. I was in Knoxville in 93, and that Blizzard was small flakes...same thing here this time...really cold too. Stretch can walk run skate slide on top of the snow blanket. He's confused. Funny though.
