Why I Love Marshalltown

We’ve had our first real snow accumulation over the past week.  Here’s what the neighbor kitty-corner from me did with it.

This is the corner of a pretty busy street, so it’s even more fun to watch people stop and hold up traffic to take a gander.  Folks park and get out to talk to him while he’s working.  A very humble, shy guy who’s not quite comfortable with all the attention.

Ahh!  Now the day care gaggle from the Lutheran church up the street is gathered around King Kong taking pictures.  This is just too cute!

What I love even more than the art or the public’s reaction is that the artist is Hispanic—a much-maligned minority in our White Bread town.  HeeHeeHee.

    How cool! Is that Fay Ray cuddled up to Kong?

    Looks like he had to work hard to get enough snow too! He should come compete in the St Paul Winter Carnaval next year!
