gnome dilemma.

4 Jun
Pull up a chair and listen to my gnome dilemma, friends.
Gnome-town has a gnome decorating contest.
(I am so not joking right now.)
The gnome wood cut-outs were available downtown for $3 at Bates Hardware. Buy a gnome and then the idea is that you decorate it uniquely, return it to Bates, and thus enter it in the gnome decorating contest for Riverfest weekend (which is the annual town festival held the last weekend in June).

Buy a gnome I did. Decorate it yet I have not. The only real rule is that there must be a red heart on the sleeve; other than that, the possibilities are endless. The deadline for gnome returns was June 1st … but rumor has it only four of the 70 gnomes purchased were returned on that day. I have it from the organizer’s mouth that I just need to have it in by Riverfest. Game on.
Japanese masking tape? Paper doll outfits with evening wear and swimsuit options? Macaroni noodles?
Any suggestions?
(Speaking of gnomes … I’m giving Friends on dvd a break and revisiting Gilmore Girls on dvd, a show over which my sister and I bonded in the last few years. I’m working my way through the first season and heard this truthful expression from Gilmore’s crazy short neighbor’s mouth : “They kicked a gnome. Right there in the head. I wouldn’t trust these boys. Gnome-kickin’ says a lot about a man’s character.”)
