A Bumble Snowman





Snowmen today, all kinds. Little Ella has been watching Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer a lot when she is here. It features The Abonimable Snowman, snapped from my T.V. screen in the first picture. It is very hard to pronounce abominable, even for adults. Ella calls him "A Bumble Snowman". It cracks me up and I try to get her to say it often. The second picture is also The Abominable Snowman. He resides on a local dentists office roof every winter, dangling a giant toothbrush from his hand. So this would make a child want to go to this dentist? I would think any kid would run screaming from the building!! In other late breaking mythological monster news, Bigfoot has been spotted here in Virginia!! Here are the two newspapers I snapped, not just our local paper, but it made a national paper, too! Billy Willard holds a plaster cast he made from a big footprint. The decal on his truck reads "Sasquatch Watch Of Virginia". Several local people have purportedly spotted a giant shaggy two footed creature galavanting around their wooded property. Perhaps he's trying to get to the dentist. Those huge toothbrushes are hard to come by.

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea..." Psalm 46

Even though it is snowing up here it is not snowman making weather! Yours looks like fun! A bumble snowman - sounds so much friendlier and even cute!

DawnTreader said...

Poor Bumble. Looks a bit hunted to me in all those pictures! ;)

Annie said...

Bumble snowman! Too cute. I forgot how funny kids could be trying to wrap their little mouths around an impossible word.

I love today's header. It looks like a tree is growing out of the snowman's head.

Regina said...

That would certainly be a tough one to pronounce..I agree, I should think they'd run out screaming too!! We never see anything odd like that here. Well I'm sure I'm missing out too! Hope you have a great weekend..I can't imagine where you too are going to get lost this time (heh heh)..

Bumble snowman is good, much easier to pronounce than abominable. Kids are so cute when they come up with other words.

Maybe you can get some shots of Billy Willard's sasquatch, I'll bet Billy could set up a photo session. We have had Big Foot sightings in our area, just a few miles from our house. Usually he was seen by hunters who might have taken a little too much beer on their hunting trip.

SquirrelQueen said...

BTW, thanks for your comment on the cosmos. I think your photos of them were amazing Ginny, don't sell your photography skills short.

Arti said...

The bumble snowman is cute and dangling it on the roof of the dentist clinic might really coax children to go there happily!!
Have a wonderful day:)

Mildred said...

What a cute post! Enjoy your weekend!

Ann said...

I always loved the line in Rudolph where Corny says that Bumbles bounce. The bumble at the dentists office makes sense since the misfit elf wanted to be a dentist and he was the one that pulled the abominable snowman's teeth. Is it obvious that I've seen Rudolph a few times?...lol

Fred Alton said...

That abumblee-ble snowman needs a teeth-brush. You know the toothbrush was invented by a Tennessean, right? If it had been anyone else it would have been called a teeth brush. (☻) hahaha

Sandra said...

love the HAT on the bumble snowman in your header. is phil prepared to drive you to get me a photos of the Sasquatch? huh? huh? i want to see him...i know how brave you are behind a camera, so click click click before he moves on to another state.

I love how little kids say things...their version. It's one of my favorite stages of their lives. I know they need to learn how to speak well but I do love to hear what they think they're hearing. I'm with you on the dentist's idea of advertising.

Melanie said...

I remember watching that movie.
That little Ella is just too adorable. I remember when Katie was that age. It was so precious. You never knew what she might say!
Fred's joke was cute. :)

With a creature like that at the dentist's office,I sure would want to stay away.I'll take Refuge in God instead.
Blessings,Ruth

I was just looking at the photo that I took of the abominable snowman at the dentist's office just yesterday, trying to think of some clever post. David drove by one day to show it to Ella and let me see it. I went by another day and took a picture of it.

Thanks for the "Ella-ism."

Stephanie V said...

In our house, the Ella-ism would last so long the grand-kids would be hearing the cute story.

That dentist photo is a scary one for sure.

Tracy said...

Ginny, I use to be afraid of the Bumble but goodness, he looks as cute as ever. Amazing what a change in perception offers, isn't it? Case in Point: God is my strength and my refuge; YES, but only if you allow Him to be!

Chatty Crone said...

It is hard to say - but I do know the show. He's cute.

Our snow was ice! Too hard to make anything.

lov,

Bumble sounds cute! As for the dentist's sign, who'd want to go there? Sounds so sweet when kids can't pronounce certain words...

photowannabe said...

That's a wild looking guy hanging on the entist office. I don't know if it would intice me into his office though. Great saying by Ella. Its always fun to come here and see how you fit your thoughts, photos and scripture together. I hope you put them in book form sometime.

Mary said...

This was a dear post save for the poor fool out there hunting for Sasquatch. Art Linkletter used to do a show called "Kids Say the Darndest Things" I loved it. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Ah---your header!!!! Love Ella's snowman the best... And I love her pronunciation of the Bumble Snowman. TOO cute.... Aren't kids just marvelous?

Have a great Saturday..
Hugs,
Betsy

Hi Ginny, I have a friend in the mountains of Oklahoma who believes in the creature... I am, however, a doubter. Oh well. That is such a cute photo of that snowman. My husband and I built our first snowman (a smaller one) last winter and oh did we work! Ha! Have a fabulous evening tonight and a super Sunday tomorrow!

Remington said...

Lots of snow here to make snowmen! Yours is really cool. We have people around here that claim to have seen Big Foot. Would be cool to get some pics of one....

Doris Sturm said...

I get a kick out of little kid's mispronouncing big words - it's so cute!

I just wanted to stop by and say hello ...I've not visited much. Been outside enjoying the cool weather and being able to breathe.

Wishing you a lovely and blessed weekend, my friend :-)

Rachel Cotterill said...

Your posts always make me smile - I love the idea that bigfoot might have come to get his toothbrush back :)

THE OLD GEEZER said...

I like "The Bumble Snowman" better than "The Abominable Snowman" :-)

Ginny, I hope you have a great SONday :-)

Bobbi said...

I love that - Bumble snowman - so cute! That's a pretty awesome one on the dentist office. He doesn't look too scary... actually pretty sweet. I love the snowman on your header. Did you build that snowman with your granddaughter or with Ella? I love snowmen... none for us yet this year. Just a dusting here and there. Not complaining!!

Stacey Dawn said...

I thought I recently heard "big foot" was in the northwest - he sure travels fast!!

LV said...

My, what interesting things you can find when our and about. Good thing you had the camera ready for these shots.

George said...

A Bumble Snowman sounds pretty good to me. I trust you'll let us know if Sasquatch is in fact found in Virginia.

srp said...

Love it... the bumble snowman... how adorable is that!

Jenn Erickson said...

Okay, so not only is your local butcher an artiste, but that dentist has an awesome sense of Christmas nostalgia!!! Sounds like you live in a great place with lots of fun, happy, and creative people (like you!)
