Here's a few pics of Babbman and I today in Aurora. 37 degrees, 10-15 mph with gusts above 20 :mrgreen:

I was fine until my Chris said, "it must be about 3 and I'm starting to get cold"... then my feet told me I was cold too...

It was a great couple of hours and a bit of playing follow the leader...

37 deg with 10-15mph winds... are we obsessed or what?

Well I guess you would be the guys who knows about that :oops: ... Although I thought you did most of your hunting with compression sacks. [smiley smilie=17 fontcolor=000000 shadowcolor=00FF00 shieldshadow=1]Lizard Killer[/smiley]

I'm :sorry: , that must've been quite a surprise when you unpacked that kite...

I'd feel pretty yucky myself, those little guys are so cute.

Nice pictures guys, would have liked to come out with you guys. But I didnt feel like doing that much driving today, so I just went local too. Looks like there is still some pretty good amount of that WHITE stuff laying around yet. :shock: Winds were good round here also. :-)

Chris is that snowman a yard ornament? Look nice hanging from the sled, LOVE the tails too!!!

Yeah, he was part of a snow globe inflatable that developed a tear in the clear plastic last year. I fixed it with packing tape, but it got worse this year. I looked at him one day and figured....why not? :twisted: A couple of modifications, a little sewing, and next thing you know... :rotfl

Chris, the snowman is great!

He maybe needs a superhero cape. :mrviolet: He's a little intent on looking at the ground, it might give him a more courageous look.

I picked up an after-xmas snowman last year and did the same thing. I haven't gotten around to it, but I think it would be interesting to try and bridle it more like a SLK than line laundry. Put a vent in the front of the hat instead of the top and try to get it more vertical. But, I like he cape idea! That and an "S" on his chest would be pretty funny.

Neat :up:


There must have been some magic in
that old silk hat they found,
for when they placed it on his head
he began to fly around!
