Gnomebody knows the trouble I’ve seen (Postcard for John)

Dear John,

I am quite perplexed and have found myself in a muddle of trouble. See, I woke up this morning to a knock, at least I think it was a knock, on my back door so I mosey on back to see who it could be, because I have a fence and two big viscous beasts of a dog or two and an attack cat and nobody, I mean nobody, comes to the back door. No one can get through the fence, except the pool dude and he’s allowed, but I digress, I go to the back door and see no one there. So now I’m all confused and wondering if I’m perhaps losing my mind and then I look down and here are all these finger and handprints on the glass doors. Now my dogs and cat don’t have digits that small, nor would they ever dare leave anything but nose and tongue prints on said glass door, and all these water drip marks splashed all over the place. Humph, now I’m really a bit confused and I look over and what do I see?

A gnome I tell you, plain as day in my pool snorkeling. Well how the blazes did he get there I said to myself, after all, it’s kind of pushy I think to just go in someone’s pool and make a mess like that, so he doesn’t say a word to me, just gives me those goggle eyes and I walk around the side to make sure the fence is latched and what do I see?

I mean really? Now I hadn’t checked the fridge to see if any of the beer was gone, but heck, I dude here is inviting friends to a party I’m not even having, well then that’s rather rude don’tcha think? Did you send them? How did they find me? Must have been this guy…

Now I know you’ve got rabbits down under and kangaroos too so I think Ricky rabbit rider here must have rode all the way to the USofA, clear from wallaby central to spread the word that there’s some kind of shindig going down….now I know I should have held back in the eighties on experimenting with that chemical stuff in college but this is a bit much…..they are getting out of control and they don’t listen to me…kind of like my dogs it seems, and the dogs are having a ball whooping it up too….but it’s getting late and the music keeps getting louder and I think my new neighbs may call the posse in on me….hold on a sec…..”turn it down already!” Humph……

Well John, gotta run and try to quench this chaos, next time you drop by, I’ll remember to leave a light on for you… may distract them as I think they don’t like the light much….makes ’em kind of grumpy.

Sending peace and love, and please send me some aspirin, I think I feel a headache coming on…..Kim and the crew

  1. Hi Kim,

    Thanks for your enthusiasm on Book 2! Ha! I am hoping for July/August release. I have an artist friend who will help with the cover in June, and the writing is more or less complete! Looking forward to it!

  2. Haha, it was a payback for my bud John for a postcard he bequeathed me with. He did a post on gnomes back in April, thought he’d get a kick out of it. Glad you enjoyed….I will be back to my normally scheduled program shortly😊


  3. Nah, just a post for a friend as payback for one he wrote to me. I have no gnomes here….although perhaps they’re out cavorting at night when I’m sleeping, rather have them around than snakes and alligators I suppose hope you’re doing well, waiting for book number two…hmmmm..chop chop Hafiz….I think he’s side tracking you🙃
    Peace and love ,

  4. What an adventure, Kim! Loved it! I think my favorite is the snorkeler. Resting in that clear water and glorious light, stoically awaiting his wave. Though they’re all really quite nice. You are overdosing on goodness. 🙂
