      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.

        I adore the little poem and since we live on the Mississippi Coast it is perfectly fitting for here as well.

      Which is more frugal, hand washing or dishwasher?

      My husband and I bought a house last summer and it came with a dishwasher. We were so excited because it was the first we ever had! Now, it's a burden. It's a piece of junk and never gets the dishes...
