I started slowly building this lump of ice on Jan 1st for the frozen theme. This lump of WTF is the result. Now I have no idea what to do with it. But it is certainly frozen!
No Water pipes were harmed in the making of this photo.
Less Ugly in LightBox :)

    I agree with Don, it does look like an octopus! Well, you could always hire a chef to come and scupt it for a dinner party. LOL It is pretty cool looking and great effort, Tim.

    JOE FAILK gave props (4 Jan 2010):

    No, I just truned on the water and losened up the hose a little so the water would spray out.

    Cindy Mikulski gave props (4 Jan 2010):

    Well, I'm not seeing the dog nose, octopus? yea! I agree it look really cool in the lightbox. But overall I give you an "A" for effect because obviously it is damn cold and I think turning the hose on and running back in the house is definitely the way to go for this theme.
