#103 – The Sad Snowman

Photo taken: January 12, 2018

What child doesn’t long to spend a snow day off from school (that my generation never would have gotten) building a snowman?  The kids around here haven’t had much opportunity to do that the last few years, but we had a small Christmas snow last year that, thanks to a prolonged frigid stretch, stuck around for several weeks.  And when things finally started to thaw… this was the result.  Three week old snowmen who’d seen better days sitting on ground that barely even had any snow on it anymore.  This poor guy is filthy, seems to have lost an eye, is leaning like a tower in Pisa, and his stick arms seem to be signaling “Fuck it, bring on the hair dryer already!”  Uh oh, here comes the nrighbor’s dog…

  1. I think it was a very smart kid who built this guy… he has a hat and a scarf so he has it warm and comfy outside ;O)

  2. Yes, this guy is listing like the Titanic. Also it appears this neighbor has at least one cat – note the window blinds??? Yeah…..gotta be at least one cat in there!

    The sad decline of Frosty. Very upsetting!

  4. Love the list to one side. I feel somewhat like that today.

    Awww. Poor Frosty. You should’ve brought him in and stuck him in your freezer 😛

    This guy is indeed sad – someone needed to put him out of his misery.

  7. Have you ever seen a happy snowman? Only in cartoons. 😦

  8. Ah yes. I remember this one. Frosty, finally realizing that his hat is NOT magic.

    Poor guy. He looks like a Western Washington snowman and they’re a sad, dirty lot, usually doomed to a very short existence.
