It may never snow in Sarasota, but there’s always a snowman to cheer me up. He lives on Arlington Street and is as festive as Frosty but so much more versatile. Last time I posted his photo, he was covered in shamrocks and drinking a beer for St. Patrick’s Day.
Today, he’s dressed in drag as the Statue of Liberty. Underneath the dress are two more logs carved from a palm tree. The ends of each log were tapered with a chainsaw to make them look more rounded like snowballs. Very clever and easy to do if you have the skills. People carve tikis with chainsaws; a snowman would be a cinch. Me, on the other hand, I’ll stay away from the chainsaw, keep all my fingers, and wait to see what this one will be wearing for Halloween.
