This is my pal Patti. This is her Patti Gnome. It is a kooky-looking mini-me. She received it today as a birthday gift from her lifelong friend David.

She thinks it is sassy. Though she has never worn, and will never wear, a bustier, she thinks it looks good on Patti Gnome.

She may mount it on her ‘Vette. It may hang out in her garden. It may pop up in unexpected places. So beware.

Gnome matter how you slice it, at any age, has to be the best birthday gift I’ve ever seen.
