: : : : It was a rather stressful week for the poor widdle gnome. Firstly, there is Doc M trying hard to think of ways to replace my vital organs with cotton batting, and there is Dana S carving pumpkins with my likeness and putting red hats on the darn squash. Most distressing of all was that the piece of wood I had labored long on revealed a flaw which caused it to crack along a shear line, resulting in quickly becoming kindling. I was so disturbed I think I invented several new gnome words of foulness.
: : : : After which, I kicked the offending piece of wood about the shop a bit, letting those new words fly time and again. And finally I asked the infamous Lainey, keeper of the matches and firebug extraoardinaire to please toss the darn thing on her bonfire.
: : : : *sigh* and now I gotta start all over again. You cannot imagine how hard it is to get any work done when you are looking over your shoulder all the time in fear of gnome-abusers......

: : : Golly, Gnome! I really am sorry to hear about your cracked stock (seriously). Is there any way you could save those, stain 'em, throw some hardware on 'em and make them wall decorations?
: : : Dana
: : Dana,
: : Well, it's a thought, but being the purist I am, likely not. I wouldn't want something fake on my wall when I can make the real thing, ya know? ;)
: : I am sure that looney tunes Doc M could make a few wall decorations out of unoffending gnomes though. IF she could get her hands on us!
: : Gnome
: Of course you wouldn't put it on YOUR wall. I was thinking about MY wall. I'd pay good money for one of your cracked stocks. I think it would make a great conversation piece. I just hate to think of all that hard work going to waste.
My the extraordinary lengths some Mohicanites will go to in order to have ANY kind of trinket that relates to LOTM! Sheesh. I should donate it to you, but I took all the various metal parts off it for the second Killdeer I. "Coming soon to a theatre near you....Killdeer II. You think you saw it all with Killdeer I but you were wrong! Like a phoenix it arises from the ashes of Lainey the Terrible's bonfire!"
How about I whittle you a miniature Killdeer I from the darn thing?
