The Year of the Gnome

It's a brand new year and all the elves sitting on shelves have been put away or burned for warmth or eaten by the dog or whatever.   Evil Twin is bored and driving me nuts so I found something to amuse her. I now introduce Gnome on the Run, the colorful garden creature that continually gets away from his evil captors, Gargoyles of the Pale.

Oh dear.  I see he's been captured.   I wonder where they are taking him?

 I'll send Evil Twin out to help him:

Yes, that's better.


Moving on....

It's been a bit shaky around here.  A nearby city (about 25 miles east) had NINE earthquakes yesterday.   Yeah, in Texas!  We've been hit by a few here and there and most folks blame the fracking, part of the process of extracting gas from the Barnett Shale.  I have yet to feel the earth move under my feet but I noticed a few items hanging more crooked than usual on my walls. 

Anything earth-shattering happening with you?

"1.00s, 1.50s, 1.75s for the short arms. If you know what I'm talking about, you're probably old, too."

"Boomer brain fog: What was the last, middle, and first part of what you just said to me?"
