Standing alone, a symbol of the holiday season, Mr. Snowman had a decorative function outside our entrance door. His solitary vigil of greeting holiday guests came to an abrupt end this weekend.
Assaulted by a rogue red squirrel Mr. Snowman’s left arm was missing, the right arm hung on by a thread, his shredded scarf was beyond repair, and his hat was fringed with bite size rips. Thankfully my husband intervened before Mr. Squirrel took Mr. Snowman’s face off! Mr. squirrel, an opportunistic vandal, fled the crime scene before he was apprehended.
A preliminary examination of Mr. Snowman found him to be damaged beyond repair. May he RIP. And Mr. Squirrel if you are still out there be forewarned we are waiting to right the wrong that was done to Mr. Snowman.
