One Fine Winter

One fine winter back in the 1970's my brother and his buddies built a snowman. It was the biggest snowman I'd ever seen and the only one I'd known my brother to build. Perhaps it was the fact that the guy in the parka on the far right was from Florida. I can't remember what he was doing so far from home, maybe he'd run away to the land of ice and snow for a little excitement. I remember he was young, about 17. It was 1976.
Little sisters are easily impressed by the feats of older brothers and we were quite impressed. Even Mom was impressed. She came outside to take a picture of us and that was really cool. Shoot! Even the creators look pleased with their accomplishment.

PS. That's me with the red mittens.


  1. Dave says they were some "scary looking dudes". :)

  2. Hahaha!
    I have NEVER seen such a tall skinny snowman!
    Linda :o)
