All You Need Is One Person To Say....
This is good packing snow
That is all I needed to know
Off I went to make a snowman
Here I am a fifty-six-year-old man playing in the snow
Just like a kid
On my knees
Trying to get a small snow ball into something bigger
After a few attempts
My earlier advice was correct
It is the perfect snow
How long will it last?
So I have to go out there and work fast
Two hours and then it became dark
The next day another two hours and I showed some more progress
Am I carrying this a little to far
I made one snowman
Not complete just the shell of a man
Then I tried to rework the body
That wasn't happening
So each time trying to make small improvements
Coming a little closer to the real thing
Rain on its way
That is a life sentence for a snowman
I have to work fast
Can I save him
Will it be too late
I am going back out there
Have I lost my mind
Am I reliving my childhood?
I must of made a snowman
I can't remember?
Was it really so long ago?
That I don't remember at least making one snowman
Well I have work to do
Before I go to work
Please, if anyone sees an old man crawling around in the snow
If he is still moving
He is o.k.
Just having a little fun Mr. Police Officer
I just want to see if I could make one

Ann Carr I am not as young as I use to be. I can't believe it. I am looking forward to going to work. It was a lot harder than it looks. I still had so much fun. My wife had to call me in. I think you had enough. We had a light dusting and covered the ground lightly. The snow on the ground turned to ice. I am glad I started when I did. I had a few thoughts on my mind. So but what better way than to share. Thank you so much for reading my snow-covered love. Have a very nice afternoon.

You're very busy writing today! Brilliant!
This made me smile - I love building snowmen but don't get the opportunity these days - warmer weather and hardly any snow in the south-west by the sea.
Love the humour in this and the determination to get it done. If we don't do one in a day, it's gone anyway! Love your phrase about rain being 'a life sentence for a snowman'.
