|Myself and 'Dave' in 2010!|
Everything was going to plan; we built up his base, rolled up the mid section, created a head and even filled him out with extra snow. We gave him pauperie eyes, mouth and 'buttons', stick arms, a carrot nose and dressed him in an old scarf - he was perfect! After a few obligatory photographs, we left him in our front garden, smiling away at the world. Then, they came along......
Kids who ran into the garden, knocked his head and body off and kicked him to bits - we knew it was inevitably going to happen, but not so soon...
So, in honour of his short existence, we have named Dave 2.0 Soloman Grundy, just like the rhyme... only our snowman's life was much, much shorter!
