    • Melted Snowman Gravy

      The day we prayed for had arrived at last,
      Winter weather came in from the north with a blast.
      We dug out our coats, hats, and mittens too,
      And ran out to play for an hour or two.
      We rolled a great ball, using all the snow that we had,
      Then we borrowed from the neighbors-they weren’t very mad!
      We built a three-story snowman, a rare sight to see,
      In this Louisiana bayou of heat and humidity.
      The wind changed, now blowing out of the south
      And soon all we had left was mud and the coal from his mouth.
      But in the spirit of sharing and Christmas greetings, too
      Here’s some leftover snowman from the Burnell's to you.

      Remember years ago, a cousin brought some brandy filled chocolate covered cherries from Germany. Reading this post brought back child hood memories.
