Save the Snowman

A couple of days ago on Pappy's birthday we had an unexpected four inch snowfall that was ideal construction material. But I notice while walking Pappy that our neighborhood is littered with the half-formed corpses of proto-snowmen. A big ball here, a little ball there, or maybe two balls stacked at odd angles. I'm not sure why they weren't finished-- excessive ambition, inadequate snow, the evening switchover to rain, or just poor work ethic.

In case the problem was a simple lack of schematics, I've included a blueprint below. I'd hate for this knowledge to be lost to future generations.

P.S. Adorable Chihuahua Minou has been doing poorly. Let's root for her recovery.

Oops, I think maybe you should number the steps. Remember, this is the younger generation we are teaching here, and it is best to keep it simple as possible. Wouldn't want any pyramid shapes snowmen, would we?

Thanks for the well wishes.... We have our fingers crossed and the kleenexes handy.

Gus,
I'd hate to make it too easy. Perhaps this blog can be the Rosetta Stone for deciphering the instructions in the distant post-apocolyptic internet.

Minou and Birdie's Mommy,
We're staying tuned. Recent news sounds promising.
