Worst neighbor award goes to..................ME

I am a bad neighbor. A really really bad neighbor. I have an excuse for it but you know what they say about excuses. This is what is still sitting on my front lawn right now. Those things hanging off the bush next to it are lights.........yep I said lights.
I never meant to leave it out this long, but it snowed. Then it snowed some more then it melted a little bit and froze back up. See the thing is, when I put this up way back in December I had this bright idea(never good). Frosty kept tipping over, he and my yard just were not on agreement about placement I guess and he ended up on his side or face every hour. So I said HEY lets put a sidewalk stone on the support bar that goes across the bottom of Frosty! This worked perfectly, until it got frozen to the ground. Every time it would warm up a little the top layer of snow would melt and I would go tug on Frosty but nope the bottom layer of ice from the last freezing was still rock solid. So now I am at a loss of what to do. My neighbors had deer out and they went and dug them up, like with a real shovel. I don't think I'm that motivated----ok I know I'm not that motivated. So here is my next bright idea. If I were to dump hot water on the bottom of frosty.....after unplugging him of course do you think I could just pull him up? I think I'm gonna try it later today. I will let you know how it goes.

Next up I wanted to show you the lovly site I witnessed this morning. I am not being sarcastic either when I see one of these bright yellow guys I just about could pee my pants!
He was PLOWING THE STREET! I am so excited, now I can actualy get out of my drive way and go somewhere. Wait............he's plowing the street not my driveway......never mind :( That thing hanging from the top of the photo is my hanging plant pot. Yes the plant in it is still I don't know how. I was going to bring it inside but then I thought well it's still alive out there why tempt fate by temprature shocking it. I took this from behind my front door seing as how I was still in my pj's and all. But let me say I was mighty tempted to run out there-fall to my kness-and beg him to please please come do my driveway. I will hand deliver muffins every week(ummm month, ok once a year) if you can please dig my poor vehicle out. Needless to say that didn't happen. It's already 1pm and I have tons and tons to do today. I shall report back about Frosty later today.


  1. too funny least you have snow for your snowman! A lot of snow at that too.

  2. What part of the South are you orignially from. I am in deep south Mississippi.

  3. Can't wait to hear if it works. It sounds good.

  4. Darsden, I have lived in both TN and GA for a while but my people are from Scottsboro AL and I spent as much time there as possible. I even make the drive about once a month. I stayed in Olive Branch Mississippi for a bit and loved it! Have you ever been very far up north?
