25th June

DP 176

When I was drawing these little arrows, I remembered my Dad singing:

"Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes made of ticky-tacky
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes all the same
There's a green one and a pink one and a blue one and a yellow one
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky and they all look just the same."

He used to sing this when we drove past housing estates filled with identical houses, even though we lived in a 70's housing estate ourselves at the time.

And remembering that song, I thought that maybe my little arrows were rows of little houses with snow on the roof.

At least those houses had a wide spectrum. I shake my head at the housing of the 2Ks. I call them pantyhose houses, as they are all cream and taupe and ecru and suntan, with ne'er a yellow or blue in sight.
