Snow Toy

In 2009, Duane Erickson of Evanston, Wyoming USA (population about 12,000), obtained
United States Patent Number 7,481,208 for a Snowball Forming and Throwing Toy. Its abstract reads as follows:

“A toy for use in forming and throwing snowballs and including an interiorly patterned cup portion to loosen packed snowballs that could injure a person targeted with the discharging snowball; a smooth inner bore adjacent the discharge end of the cup; a hollow handle with control holes to be opened and closed to increase throwing accuracy, and for use in bugling; a handle knob to provide for better grasping of the toy during throwing of a formed snowball, and including an open end to serve as a mouthpiece when the toy is used as a bugling-type noise maker”.

This remix is dedicated to this spirit of invention, as well as to the snow-making machine, the sno-cone machine and all machines involving the joy of snow.

I believe that life often offers lots of snowballs, if we but have the spirit of adventure to throw them.
