It was nice out, so I decided to make a snowman. I got all the components, snow for the body, carrot for the nose, prunes for the eyes (I didn't have any coal, so I figured the birds could eat them), and, of course, deer poop for the teeth. Donning my rubber gloves, I assembled the guy and tried a little bit of sun flower seeds for hair. It looked like some sort of concept film of "Frosty The Snowman" filmed by Alfred Hitchcock.
When the bigger birds landed on the carrot nose, it went all Michael Jackson on me and fell out.
As it was a warm day, the snowman is just now a large lump of melting snow, seed hulls and feces from a variety of different critters. Isn't winter just grand!
