The Director and her dog enjoying the snow. Has anyone else got a good snowman?

Nod, nod ... Wink, wink!

Not lacking the snow here in East Lancashire, just lacking the energy to create a frozen effigy, but I will add to the New Year jollity with a winking robin captured outside our front year a number of years ago!

Sorry, like Cliff, cannot manage the snowman but here is my 1956 Austin A35 Pickup with a snowy hat on! May attempt a snowman later but it's still snowing steadily here.

Sorry again, I put "picking" in the search box rather than "pickup" !

Snow does have a strange effect on the brain.

Good use of plant material again.

Cliff, - Brian thinks your robin was not winking, but had been in a fight resulting in the loss of an eye.

Hi Brian and Maureen,

The robin was not maimed - this image was among about twenty I took at the same time. It appeared to be very tired, actually sleeping on the fence and allowing me to get particularly close, but it also hopped about inquisitively as I worked in the garden and watched me plant up a small trough. It flew off later and was spotted the following day on the same trough. Happy New Year to you both.

Fair enough, Cliff. For years we always had a 'tame' robin, - if you left the back door open, he was in like a shot and went beyond the kitchen if the inner door was open. Here he is in our bedroom upstairs!

Another of the snowman in our road

Notice that this one, too, is made up with plant material

Finally one for the footballers

Take note of the agonised expression on this snowman's face, fairly normal for a Manchester City Football Club supporter

At last, some snow good enough to make a snowman out of. We missed the first lot and it went powdery.

This snowlady was made by my wife Helen and her 88 yr old Mum. It is about 5ft high. (The snowlady, not Mum)

This "igloo" was constructed on Welland playing field on Tuesday, it is large enough for 4 people to stand inside and amazingly warm therein.

Helen and her Mum standing alongside.

Come on Colin ... stop trying to kid us! That young lady is NEVER eighty eight years old!
