Gnome in the tree

Cutting down a tree for the mother of my daughter’s friend. I was trying to get the branches teamed first. When I cut off the branch that was growing over the driveway I spotted this little guy looking at me. I stopped and told the woman she had a gnome living in the tree we were cutting down. Little was I to know she was very superstitious and made me stop cutting on the tree. If you drive by her house still today, you’ll see the tree just the way I left

He's such a sad looking gnome...but I have a feeling he was smiling after you stopped cutting! :)

You seem to have a talent with the supernatural when working with wood!
The knome story is also amusing!

Word ver
that's what we do at work!

I thought you were about to say that the woman says she sees a gnome every now and then. :)

I had a time trying to see the gnome Ellis, but I finally got it :) People are funny when it comes to superstitions.

Hey, I thought gnomes were in Alaska? :)

That is awesome!! I bet he is glad to have the view now. Genie let out of a bottle.

I could use a chainsaw around here! :)

What's her address? I'll see if the guy who keeps trying me to hop on the back of his bike would mind stopping by.

We´re a few countries away, so it might take a while....

It took me a while to make out the gnome but I finally did--he is sad looking.

It's hard for me to believe there are still people that are so superstitious in the world--seemingly intelligent too...

Oh, well. Enjoyed your little story here, Ellis. Thanks.

I was ready to cut a slice and save it. The other half of the limb that got cut off did not have him on it.

I seem to spot things other people seem to miss. Yet I have had my share of ghost.

The woman thought that red center was the Gnomes heart I had cut into.

I like to look outside the box more than in it. I have a lot more room to roam.
Yes people tend to use anything to try and make since of things.

I think Gnomes eat kids brains. When they run loss.
