we are very big in Japan.....

You see lower down, I made a Godzilla wall piece where he is eating a gnome...why are gnomes such easy targets for FUN? They ARE!
And here, the pic of me? The wise man, even if his birthday is several weeks away, selects the perfect gifts and has the wife set them aside to wrap, etc when the time is right :)

Ahhhhhh Gnomes.....perhaps the strange popularity they enjoyed many years ago.....around the same time as the Smurf thing, may explain why they are susceptible to teasing. We have one that I like to hide out in the woods by the holly tree.

I don't think Penny is yawning........she's waiting for her gnome treat!

Now you need a gnome eating Godzilla! Title it "Fear the Gnome!"

There is a distinct resemblance between you and Penney in this series of photographs.
So...I guess it's true what they say about people and their dogs beginning to resemble each other.
