Mortimer...

To be honest, I hadn't noticed how many "abominable" snowmen we have here in Minnesota once the lakes freeze and the snow starts to accumulate. I was fortunate to be able to take in one such snowman this weekend. And he really wanted to meet you all. Seriously, he begged me.


The snowman who is now living with us is named Mortimer, though he prefers to be called Mort. He's so silly. Even though he begged to meet you, he's being shy for the camera in this first shot.


Mort loves to bake. The mood strikes at least three times a day and therefore he just leaves his apron on at all times. When he arrived at our lakeside home he told me that he'd bake some cookies for us, but first he needed a manicure and a pedicure. I obliged and he told me the story of his journey. Mort's family lives in the northern Canadian tundra. He had ventured south on his own shortly after he finished college. He ended up in Ohio and thought it was too warm, so he ventured West. He found Minnesota winters agreeable and then sought out a sucker to make him in. Yes, that's me. But really, who could resist?

Mort made these fabulous cookies with red, green and white snowflakes on them. They were absolutely amazingly delicious. He really likes this photo of him waving hello to everyone. He says if you come over to call first so he has time to make some fresh cookies for you.

Mort also wanted me to say a special hello to Abby of Abbydid and her family. And he says thank you for taking such good care of him while he was visiting you in Ohio.
