Bold Statement - ABC

Dontcha wish your snowman was hot like mine

B



If you are on B's Facebook you will know I'm less B for bewitched and more for bothered and bewildered by the whole island failure to connect properly with the outside world.the last 24 hrs. Maddening. So you get a last minute substitute image as I've being haranguing Facebook all day to no avail about getting the Isle of Man a proper, stand alone server. We are an island, a country apart. Ramsey is not in Manchester, UK. In fact none of the island is. Don't get me started on that one, or I will tell you why we should not be paying for a TV license either! Rant over. The snowman.


Not sure if it's a snowman or snow woman. Play safe and shall we say flamboyant? Whatever he/she/it is I'm going with Lola ( you should know my musical references by now) and say that is just the coolest outfit you see on a snow person, of which I can take no credit for dressing, and that outfit surely is a "bold statement." Ambiguous B, yes but Bowring Road would be such a boring obvious B, and I have shown you the Britannia pub before. There is a bonus B in there if you look very closely. Babooshka. As I don't really exist though, only for blog purposes, maybe that reflection of the photographer is in your head.

Gail's Man said...

So you're not the only ice maiden on Wicker Island now then!

Grace and Bradley said...

I do not know that it can snow on you island and snow enough to build a snowman (snow woman). Hope your connection gets better now.

Anna said...

Brilliant:)

As one island resident to another, may I respectfully suggest that ice should be conserved for chilling certain beverages? Although I confess if we had as much of it as you, (or any for that matter) perhaps a small dip of the toe into similar high art would be excusable.

I just get used to your photography skills and you floor me with your writing Patsy. Just how many names have you got?

Leslie: said...

To us, a babooshka is another name for a scarf wrapped around your head. I'd call this a bonnet. But then you call the hood of the engine the bonnet. So.....LOL

peripheralperceptions said...

Love the snowLola. So stylish. :-)

Chuck Pefley said...

LOL!! And when you come to the letter "H", let me know as I've a snowMAN wearing a construction worker's hard hat -:) Happy to loan him to you.

Some Ramsey-ite obviously have good taste!

Babooshka said...

Gailsman -There was only room was one us, I stared at maiden until she/he melted away.

Chuck - That wood be another H a hoot. Snowman in hard hat is not your everyday image, and the Ramsey lass with the glad rags is the creme de la creme and extremely stylish.

Leslie- I quite like being a scarf and I have to say new one on me.

bitingmidge - I missed a trick there. Should of got the bottle of JD out and chipped away. I always forget Australia is an island because it's so vast compared to this postage stamp.

Love the snow person....

I have seen that hat before.

That is a sharp looking snowman or snow-woman. LOL.

Roger Owen Green said...

The ambiguity of the snowperson brought to mind lyrics from the Broadway musical Hair:

I would just like to say that it is my conviction
That longer hair and other flamboyant affectations
Of appearance are nothing more
Than the male's emergence from his drab camoflage
Into the gaudy plumage
Which is the birthright of his sex

There is a peculiar notion that elegant plumage
And fine feathers are not proper for the male
When ac---tually
That is the way things are
In most species

On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you! - Ramblin' with Roger

I love this post and the "flamboyant" snowperson. Great use of B words too.

Leif Hagen said...

Actually, we don't have a snowman at the moment but if we did, he's be cooool, not hot!

A friend said...

Lass,love it.

Diann @ the Thrifty Groove said...

That brought a smile to my face!

When I read Leslie's comment I'd say:"The English language is frustrating and complicated"! But I realize that English is a mixture of Latin, Saxon, Viking, Celtic,and French. It has 800,000.00 words whereas many other European languages have 200,000.00 words.
The hat of the snow"person"is very nice!

Somewhere a leopard is missing its spots... :-)

Brainy B!

Brett said...

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

Babooshka said...

The owner was nearby making pancakes, so no it wasn't me but I have been known to walk out with the hat when drunk.

Jedediah said...

Love the snowperson (Gender Issues in Snowpersons...sounds like a bestseller)!

Spiderdama said...

Great snowy person;-)

Mojo said...

"Girls will be boys and boys will be girls / It's a mixed up muddled up shook up world except for Lola / Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola"

Ah Babs, you always did know the straightest path to my heart dincha?

mountain.mama said...

That is the hottest snowman I have ever seen!

Babooshka said...

Mojo - always count on you. An ipod favourite.
