Poor Snowman!

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

Guffawing here Carol!

Poor beggar needs a crutch 'cause he's tipsy and now there's the threat of a hang-over! Too funny!!

Groan, Lyn. But very true! laffs Inge's also good at keeping up stile sweeping and shoveling whatever gets on the steps connecting Patio/Fence/OTGF to Talking Plants. It's a makeshift but sturdy structure designed for gardeners who're not up to "hopping the fence" (from whatever side[s]) some days.

Ummm, where is the kitty litter for some traction, Ms SQWAWK!!![for short]?

Not sure how long that crutch is going to hold the poor guy up...anyone want to guess when the ETT (estimated topple time) is going to be?

Hint...mild weather on the way!

Editing as Ron posted his toppler while I was posting....LOL Ron!! That's hilarious!

So how about:

ETT for my snowman on crutch: __________?

ETT for Ron/Jeanne's snowman on ski poles: __________?

ETT for my snowman on crutch: 6:54pm Sunday EST

ETT for Ron/Jeanne's snowman on ski poles: 5:01pm Sunday EST

Oh goodie! An endurance race of tottery, teetering snowthings. Gads, splitting a gut looking at Jeanne's creation, complete with "Ronsty's" corn on the cob hat. Hope he's wearing a toque till Frosty melts/topples/puddles.

Good luck, Cars' homme or 'dame de neige! (excuse my bad français, Jazz) This is gonna be a VERY interesting contest!!

Now, no cheating Ron and Cars, giving your snow people gentle nudges before they're slushpuppies!

Mare/Mars;o} haven't looked at netherwetwork yet so predictions are ill-founded

P.S. And is first guess final? ee ee
