SNOWMEN GONE BAD:



How would you like to have this guy looking at you?


These cartoons were sent to me early last year, but I decided to save them to post for this winter. I just LOVE the creativity! For those of you who live in the snow, have you ever created snowmen like this? I remember as a kid that we built many snowmen, and tried to build igloos and snow blocks for forts, too. Sometimes they even worked! We would also sweep and stomp the snow into floor plans for big houses...living room, kitchen, bedrooms, etc. What a blast we had...until we got cold.

Being in a family of six children, I remember many times that we would have to wear little plastic bags over our hands with socks instead of gloves or mittens because we had either lost them or they were wet from the last time out or mom just couldn't afford to get us more at the time. We didn't have all the fancy waterproof fabrics like they do now, so no matter what you wore, it was usually wet and icy within minutes. There were many days when we'd come in from the snow barely being able to feel our cold little fingers, toes and noses...I'm sure it wasn't as bad as it seemed, and it was all worth it!

Click on the pictures if they're not big enough for you to see them well on this page. Enjoy!



Snow sharks. That guy's a goner.
