In the Meadow We Will Build a Snowman...

It warmed up to just above freezing today and the snow was perfect for snowballs and snowmen. This young couple was admiring their handy work and perhaps waiting for Parson Brown.

It's a nice start, but I think their snowman could use a few accessories. Just sayin'.

i hate feeling stupid, because i dont know who parson brown is. but assuming it is a literary figure and not a real parson wiht a tall hat, the building of a snow fort and the stockpiling of snowballs should be completely optional.

Parson Brown appears in the popular song "Winter Wonderland" as first sung by Bing Crosby.

The song begins:

"Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight,
We're happy tonight.
Walking in a winter wonderland".

Then in the refrain it says:

"In the meadow we can build a snowman,
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He'll say: Are you married?
We'll say: No man,
But you can do the job
When you're in town."

I'm sure you are too young to remember when the song was first published in 1934 but it is still heard at Christmas. I bet you know it.

I found myself humming along whilst reading this post:-)

All that snow is delightful to look at but, for me, a so and so to walk in.
