My Snowman can Beat Your Snowman
  My Snowman can Beat Your Snowman
My Snowman can Beat Your Snowman
He's in my neighbor's backyard and I shot him from just outside my yard's side gate, 75 feet away from him . Used the telephone & electric lines to give an idea of his GINORMOUS SIZE 40 something feet tall or more.
If you were wondering YES HE IS A TRAFFIC STOPPER !! As Christmas approaches cars full of kids clog the street in front of his home & mine as well as the street between our homes. All
wanting to see & get a picture of the SUPER SNOWMAN . He was once a commercial display
who was rescued when he was going to be sent
to the Dump .

Well, Melodie, you can come to my house! We don't even have snow, let alone snowmen.
He's a great conversation piece for sure!

Wow...Mel has MY aversion for clowns (and one tried to molest me when I was a day camp counselor about 50 years ago). But SNOWMEN are HARMLESS, Mel! This one is spectacular, and your shot, Jack, shows vividly just how enormous he is! Bravo! But where is he stored for the REST of the year? I wonder.

Whoa Nelly! Glad he's up your way - if he were around here, I'm afraid somebody would have taken potshots at him by now. Those inflatable displays have a way of getting shot down rather quickly.

Bigger is better, yeah!
This couldn't be shot in Australia, because he is smoking :-)

I was about 3m away, in the kitchen. He wrecked my flowers and didn't take a bath.
