Gnomes without homes

On Donna's blog, she mentions this "short" article on gnomes without homes.

After the horrors of their abduction, one would think that their owners would claim the unfortunate piles of concrete and paint, and return them to their patio, lawn, and flower bed homes. But it just hasn't happened.

The poor vertically-challenged dears will probably suffer from shock at the impossibility of their return, but one gnome: we'll call him "Willaminafreddieafinfort" did go home. Lucky him.

But what of the others? I think we should construct a gnome outreach program. Anyone with me?!

Just look at the poor exterior design ornaments. Couldn't you share your lawn with one of them?

I've already decided to adopt one. I think I'm naming him Henry.

Yeah. I know. I saw that Henry was taken on Donna's.

I think I want one name Snickersby.

I'll go with a classic. David the Gnome :-) (does anyone remember that cartoon...?)

YES! With Swift the Fox, and all the cute little gnome children... awh, those were the days... Nickelodeon showed that for the longest time.

David the Gnome? Everyone talkied about him in high school. I never watched it. Does anyone have any vintage episodes on tape?

I used to have TONS on video.

Go ahead: ask me what happened to them.

I read about this problem in Better Gnomes and Gardens.
