Stumpy wrote:Hi,

My name is Stumpy. I was trapped in a Christmas tree for almost 8 years!  (Don't believe me? Just count my rings!)  

Now that I'm free again I "wood" love to travel around the neighborhood playing hide-and-seek with you!

Btw, I live in the community garden behind the preschool, so if you find me somewhere, take me home!  And if I look bored at home in my garden, read me a good book or perhaps hide me somewhere new in the neighborhood!

-Stumpy

Ps. In exchange for playing hide and seek or reading to me, I promise to not steal any more of your tupperware lids or socks!

Stumpy is the best-looking garden gnome I have ever seen.

You are so creative with both wood and verse.

I have an inkling of a feeling that other gnomes or maybe some other feyfolk are on their way to my garden.

Wow, Stumpy, I love that variety of purple kale you're hiding behind, and my ducks love it too!
 
Yeah, but how did the squirrel get in there? Was it because of the tiny ad?
