I don’t usually enter contests, but it’s all about change…and it’s a new year…so…I’ve entered the Great American Snowman Contest.
We’re supposed to use materials in our area. (Rules..schmools…I really didn’t read them closely.)
I’m too much of a slacker to drive to the mountains, so I used what every western Oregonian has in abundance: RAIN & RECYCLE.
If you have a graduate degree you’ll understand why Rain is a perfectly logical snowman material.
I present….. (tra-la-la)
RAINY, the Pre-SNOWMAN
I must add, I was readying Mr. Rainy for his photo op when we had a rather embarrassing moment. Mr. Rainy said it was because he needed to do some core work, but I think it was really due to his rather slippery nature.
Anyway…part of his torso jumped and rolled under the deck. Mr. Rainy LOOOOOVES to turn dirt into mud….what a kidder. He even suggested he’d help me clean up with a candlelight bath since he’s not afraid of a little heat, like those “normal ” snow men. In an attempt to dampen Mr. Rainy’s attitude, I didn’t fully load his innards for this photo.
I tried to get the feral lop-earred cat—who thinks his name is: “Don’t-feed-that-fur-ball,” because that’s what Dallas Cowboy Fan is always shouting when he sees him.
Well….I tried to get the drenched cat into the photo to garner the sympathy vote, but the cat wanted nothing to do with Mr. Rainy–even though he had food under his recycled balloons.
So I’ll just tell you the benefits of this wonderful creation.
- Portable: Mr. Rainy can go anywhere. Mobile and ready to roll.
- Adjustable: Fits any space.
- Refillable: That’s why he’s so popular at party. His only competition will be Mr. KEG.
This is logically the best snowman in the world. I expect he’ll eventually wash away all the competition.
