True story: 2006
It was a beautiful warmer than usual evening, near midnight when the snow began to fall. Large paper like flakes that seemed to float from the heavens, thickly at first as to appear like a sheet of white tissue.
I love this kind of snowfall and I put on jacket, boots and gloves and called the dog to come out and play.
It was snowing harder as I approached the pool house. The snow on the ground was becoming the perfect snow of which to make snowmen…. so you know where this story is going….. by 2:30 am I had accomplished this wonderful figure, placed on the end of the diving board with the attire that you see in the pic….. yes!!!! Swim mask, snorkel, and “inner tube” placed in their appropriate places. I stood back to smile at this image before me.
Happy as a clam, I went off to bed !!!
In the morning, while admiring my night time work, I am greeted by my husbands’ remark…. "I can’t believe you do things like this!!!! lol
So, last year, while searching for ideas for my Christmas card, I remembered my snowman…. and this is it folks!!!!! lol
