Pat Shingleton: "Snowballs and Foreign Objects..."
George Seaman raised Beagle dogs for rabbit hunting in the Pennsylvania. As noted in a previous column, George designed a pen with enclosures at one end and an elevated open area and a place where they could "do their business." The meshed pen allowed droppings to fall and collect on the ground below. Our snowball battles stretched between the Minett and Sudano yards, criss-crossing George's property. The rules of engagement stressed that no "foreign objects" could be inserted into a snowball; such as stones or gravel. My brother Kevin abided by the rules but creatively inserted the frozen "do-do" from George's beagles into the snowball. His direct hit on Johnnie Cornelius' noggin' met with approval-he wasn't a favorite in the neighborhood.
