A Photo A Day For 6 Months: Day 160: Mr Slippendicker's Big Day

"Trust not in Sprites nor the motivations of a Gnome."

~Jefferson Smith, Strange Places

In my travels the other day, I came across a yard with perhaps 200 garden gnomes in it. They faced ever direction, and no two were exactly alike. In addition to the gnomes population, there were at least 10 or 15 gargoyles here and there. At first I thought perhaps they were on display for Halloween, but upon further viewing it became apparent that every day is perhaps Halloween. LOL. I like garden gnomes, but I am not 100 % sure I trust them. LOL. I have had one or two incidents in which I was pretty sure that a gnome was responsible for my having tripped or fallen. How do I know it was a gnome to blame? Well, you see, I could kinda hear the sound of evil, far off laughter, as I landed on my rear end and slid down a muddy lump of a hill. Gnome-like laughter. I know what you are thinking... and yes... it could have been a neighbor, but something tells me it was more than likely a gnome. An evil gnome! Yep! A gnome!

His name was probably Mr. Slippendicker.

Or maybe I am a klutz.

Now, go see what my friend JR is sharing with us today. He's awesome!
