For Dawn

(if she happens upon here to see it...)

I've said it before, Dawn loves her some gnomes. She has cool ones in her garden, watching over her flowers. Seeing them displayed in her garden made me want to get one or four. BUT! I dont have a garden. (I'm fighting to be able to get them to just have them in the backyard, giving some light to our now-dark walkway.) Imagine my surprise when I happen upon the website (to lovingly admire and desire them) and I see that they want to clear their summer inventory to make room for Christmas stuff. (Don't even get me started on stores already getting that holiday stuff out...geez, Louise!) They are offering their adorable little gnomes at discounted prices. I found a new one I like-but I really couldn't put him anywhere since there are no trees in my yard:Don't you love him? Maybe I could put him on the clothesline that no one uses? Maybe hang him from the gutters? Or perhaps I can ask my backyard neighbors if I can hang him off their Pear Tree that hangs over our fence. (Yeah, my neighbors have a Pear Tree that drops nasty looking pears into our yard all the time. It should be the least they can do right?)
I'm still working on getting my light gnomes (blogger wouldn't let me upload the pics last time, today they went up with no problem. Stupid Blogger.), Daddy is no longer just saying "No." so I think he is softening up.

Haha...I happen to love gnomes, too. And I am not much of a gardener either, so my 1 and only gnome lives inside with us. Well, he is only about 6 inches tall. I was too cheap to splurge on any of his bigger brothers. Oh well.

So I should not mention how, in a pinch mind you, gnomes make good golf tees?
