Packing Heat at the Sales

Marguerite of Canoe Corner comments:

Went to an auction last weekend and the person selling must have been a yard art lover. Pelicans, swans and gnomes. One gnome in particular caught my eye. When did these little guys start packing heat? I knew you had to keep an eye on these guys but it's getting crazy out there, be viligent.

"The Old Lady, she wasn't so good to us. Now we find ourselves on the slave market. I suggest, you be good to us."


"You tell 'em, Vincent."

I was not surprised to discover Marguerite, did not bring Vincent home. A caffeine headache can make one a bit grouchy.

What Vincent and his buddy need is to get back to their 'hood:



....or the Starbucks

  1. Where is everybody ? Looks like I'm the only one to face up to the gnome from the hood. He says he's riled by the treatment of his friend in Texas.

  3. Hey, I'm here! Blogger thwarted me on another blog this morning - I even went into my account and changed my password - no dice! According to Blogger I am now signed in, but your blog, and 7MSN, won't accept me as I am! Grumble. That does it - I'm going out to find a bunch of gnomes I can hold hostage until Blogger does the right thing.

  6. There's a deceptively sweet look on that gnome's face. He reminds me of the boss bear in the last Toy Story.

  7. Vincent rocks. I think he would make a swell end-o-the-driveway ornament--to scare all those folks turning around in our driveway that drive me nuts. Can't believe she passed him up.

  8. OMG!!!! You're in my hood!!! I burst out laughing when I saw my metro stop. This rap is pretty famous around here. Our gnomies aren't packing heat but rather a coffee from one of the 4 Starbucks, or 2 other coffee shops within a 3 mile radius of my house!! I don't live in Arlington, but close enough!! I LOVE that you posted this!!

  9. Vincent looks right at home in a Texas garden. Don't y'all pack a firearm in Texas? Send him to Dallas.

  10. Hey, give that gnome a break! He is just keeping an eye out for home invaders. All my little gnome friends wear a big smile and carry a big pistol beneath their pointed caps.

  11. I still want a Travelocity gnome. If they made one that carried a gun, I would have had it already.
