Snow Puppy and the Horned Snowman of Doom

Snow Puppy and the Horned Snowman of Doom

Something lighthearted and fun for this Friday:  It’s snow season around here and I recently enjoyed some fun in it.  The snowman started out normal enough, but ended up turning out distorted – kind of like Frosty’s demented radio-active cousin.  It’s been a few years since making my last snowman, so I was a bit out of practice.  Since he was already pretty odd looking, I threw on some horns and “gonna grab you” arms and hands to complete the look.  The little snow puppy turned out pretty well considering I’ve never made one before.

After snapping a photo, I was reminded of those crazy Calvin and Hobbes snowman-based cartoons.  I can’t hold a candle to the comedic genius expressed in those comics, but still wanted to share my little construction-in-the-cold.  My wife doesn’t care for the “horned snowman of doom”, but I got a kick out of it and hope it brings a smile to your face, too.

For those of you who live in a winter wonderland this time of year, what kind of snow-creations have you (or your kids) made recently or in winters past?  Tell me about it.  Post a link to a photo or two in your comment, if you’ve got any to share.

  1. Love it, good work. Each year I keep re-reading the Calvin snowmen strips – they are fantastic :)

    I have to ask though – who built the Donny Darko rabbit in the background (that is a rabbit that freaks me out…)


    1. Thanks, Stacy. :) Yeah – those Calvin and Hobbes snowman comics never get old. I enjoy them each year.

      As for the “Donnie Darko rabbit”… it is entirely possible that writer Richard Kelly somehow took control over me as I crafted the snow. I hear he’s into that kind of thing these days. lol :) 50 points for the awesome reference, btw. :D

    1. Thank you, Petra. :) I was pleasantly surprised to be awarded, and very grateful my offerings are meaningful to many who have found their way here.

      It means so much to be missed in my apsense, as well. Thank you for taking the time to tell me. :) You’re a real sweetheart! Seriously, it means a lot and I very much appreciate it.

      New post coming very shortly… a bit of advice for a sister in need. I hope you’ll check back to offer her your insight. This particular situation happens all too often…
