If only it were that easy.

Smook said...

Do you have enough room in the backyard for that?! Lovely sketch,Arna.

UM said...

Very charming illustration. Are you going to have a go at making a real one and can you post images?

Steve, Alina, St John St. Smook, Uli. Thanks for visiting again and for your kind response to the sketch! I'm delighted that you suggested the slide idea, Steve. Our backyard is small with trees all around.. so maybe we'll do a mini ice dino. The way the weather is coming on we might have 10 cm. of snow in the next few days!

We'll post pictures as this winter develops. It should be interesting...

Hey kids. Please, please speak with your insurance company before undertaking the above design, I beg of you. God its a beautiful drawing...but...a reckless and dangerous design, especially during a thaw. At least there is no pressure treated lumber involved, I'll grant you that.

I Enjoy checking in with you occasionally on your site and blog. I have become a fan of computers now that I can turn them on. It's so wonderful to be able to have social intercourse without any form of eye contact or exposure to disease vectors, unsavory vapours and ultraviolet radiation. All the best for the holiday from our bunker to yours, love and intercontinental ballistic kisses,
Clive.

Mr. Powsey! How nice to read that you've been blurking about on our blogeral! We will send you an electronic missive of a slightly more personal nature.. (email) Still no eye contact however! Hi to Sheree-Lee, from the sloppy wet mess that is Toronto today. Looks more like Vancouver!

Matt J said...

Cool, you're really gonna build one? Look forward to the photos. Must be freezing already in Toronto right?

Hi Matt! We'll need to wait til there's some snow that stays on the ground first! We had snow last week but it's been balmy here, up to 16 celcius yesderday. We'll possibly getting snow and a bit of wet flurries during the next day...

Hi Arna and John.
Nice to hear there is snow on the way for you. the unreliable weather folk in the UK say we are supposed to have a cold winter, but you just can't trust them. Well I'm dreaming of snow anyway. I promise we will attempt a snow dino if it precipitates.
Haven't blogged for a while but finally started again after doing some work for myself. Good fun these sabaticals, just don't happen often enough.
Read Kenneth Oppels book, will have to go and by the sequel now...

P.S. have been watching Robin's Gerald Mc. Boing over here and have genuinely laughed out loud frequently.
Give him a hug from me and tell him he's a genius..

Hello Michael and Sharon! Don't know if you will come back to read this, but thanks for dropping by again. We passed on the compliments to Robin... havn't given him that hug yet, but will do. We're hoping this week to send you a COOLMAN! dvd. The snow fell last night and covered everything then half melted away... streets are greasy tonight. Mild. That's the weather report from T.O. Cheers!
