Somebody stold my three gnomes (Cubs, Bears & Blackhawks) right off my front porch last year and I am still really mad about it.

Some people just ruin everything Jennifer. Sorry to hear that. Maybe the gnomes will get their revenge on the thief or thieves.

Oh no! I love that house with the gnomes on Duane! I noticed they weren't out in the yard like usual this week. Poor guys.
Mary Ann Lopez August 16, 2012 at 05:53 PM
Zoe, I bet the family and the gnomes are both unhappy.
J. Burket August 16, 2012 at 06:59 PM
I do not condone gnome theft, but one would naturally think that they are manufactured specifically for that kind of activity. Gnomes must be kept under lock and key . . . or, at the very least, in the safety of one's backyard.

You and your gnomes Zoe! :)

Roaming Gnomes convention - okay, this one is challenging - two gnomes left on my father's grave in Glen Ellyn (they were in his yard in Glen Ellyn for years) are also missing. Is there a gnome meeting somewhere? There's no place like gnomes . . . seriously, it would be great if they were just returned. No questions asked. Chris

Well that is just wrong. I am guessing that whoever took those gnomes is going to deal with the result of some seriously bad karma at some point.
