Default It's no funship

It's a snow funship.
Here's what to do with those big piles of snow, when you'd rather be cruising somewhere warm...

A border Collie and a personality that makes lemonaide out of lemons ( in this case beautiful snow sculptures out of lots of snow!) Thats just great, a nice idea...........bet you that pup of yours did some serious running in the snow today! Mine sure did ( shelties- close cousins to the BC behaviour wise! )

WOW how cool is that! How long did it take the border collie to build that snow sculpture? (I'll bet he's smart enough to build it!)
The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I finished the roof on our new building yesterday, so I'm going to take a break from that project today. Lots of other "stuff" to do instead.
Have a great Sunday, and next week. 7 days!!!!!!

What is that white stuff you made it out of? When I talked to my oldest brother last nigh (Indiana) I asked him about the white stuff and he siad that it was "Snow, don't your remember!) No I have completely blocked it out of my mind. The only thing I remember was that it was C-O-L-D.

That white stuff is s-n-o-w, a four-letter word, IMHO. We've had a snowy winter (52" so far, avg is 33") but that's nothing compared to some, so I'll quit whining.
Donna, with all the snow you folks have, you could build a whole fleet!
The ice carving demo on our cruise was a ship, thus the seed was planted. It's finally warmed up (upper 30's, low 40's) with some sunshine, good snowman/snowball weather my DH says.
We started building Friday after work and finished up yesterday, maybe 2-3 hours total. We just "re-shaped" one of the piles off the patio.
Our pup didn't help much, she was too busy chasing squirrels off the feeders and enjoying the warmer weather.
