A Dozen Snowmen and A Dog


 What to do with a yard full of snow 
that you never really wanted...

 Make a snowman? 

 I had two snowballs rolled and then I was pooped out.  

(old.age.setting.in)

  But as I'm building these 2 big snowballs I'm thinking,  

Snowmen.  Not one.  Not two.  But a yard full of snowmen. 

 Good advertising.   "Look at all those snowmen!"  "And the ear"  "Huh!  They must sell hearing aids here...  Let's stop and buy a hearing aid."

Then I thought.  But I can't even build one snowman yet alone a yard full of them. 

 Then the lightbulb!

I called my unemployed son and asked him 
if he wanted a job.


He worked hard into the night.  
I went out and helped him off and on.  It was bonding time for mother and son.  Today after church Gary and I visited the $1 Store and then put the finishing touches on the faceless mounds of snow.

And now, we have a dozen guests living in our front yard and they just might be here for a while....

Rambling On...

Many ask, how are you enjoying retirement?  I am!  I loved my job, and especially when I ran my own business, but being retired is even bett...
