WTF?






So as I've been gone to work my usual Friday and Saturday night shifts, only to return home this morning to be greeted by the proverbial "Lawn Gnome". Only there's not just one there are several lining both sides of my driveway. I, of course stopped the car and pondered the wonderment for a moment thinking, "Geeze, Steve and Zoe sure went to a lot of trouble." and "No way, They would never have been this creative on a practical joke and if anyone in this house was to play a practical joke, it would me." and " There is no way Steve would waste the money on so many lawn gnomes, would he?"
Steve met me at the house as I got out of the car and I said, "What the hell?" and he said, "I know, I was so pissed this morning when I let the girls out and saw what I thought was trash all over the lawn!" I said, "So you didn't do this?" His reply, "NO!" We've since figured out that it was one Zoe's friends. He left her a present after she told him he sucked for not stickin' around to hang out with them today. I can only imagine the town folk all waking up with at least a half a dozen of them reporting to the local police that their lawn gnome has gone missing. Good grief!
So Zoe promptly gathered them all up and washed off all the spiders and old grass and she plans on keeping them in her room........Creepy!
I then decided it was time to don the girls with their new fly caps and geezus, they look ridiculous! Steve said people will be stopping to take pics of our clown like horses. I guess I could have chosen more subtle colors, but well, that wouldn't be me now would it!

The gnomes were an interesting greeting committee for you this morning. These kids are so wacky sometimes. Hope all the people missing the gnomes don't track them to Zoe's bedroom. It's pretty funny though. I love the girls new hair-pieces they look very exotic.

Oh dear, the i-gnome-nimity of it.

I hope that thief doesn't make a hobbit of this!

Callie said...

LMAO, you guys! I figure if word gets out, we'll track down the owners, however, there are 17 of them!

Shirley said...

Couldn't you call the cops and tell'em that 17 aliens landed on your lawn and to come and get them? But they'd probably take one look at your mares and figure that you really are nuts!LOL! Love the red fly mask.

Callie said...

I know, I know, They look ridiculous! I think the clown brigade piled out of there little car and put those silly hats on!

Pony Girl said...

Those gnomes are creepy! I can't believe Zoe is going to keep them in her room, lol!
Hey, where did you get those fly caps? I am looking for a similar style for my gelding....

Rising Rainbow said...

The gnomes are HOT!!! Geez, that wouldn't be good......with my luck I'd be in jail. lol

I hate fly season. The horses finally shed off all that winter hair and I want to enjoy their pretty faces instead they have to wear those ugly things.

I wonder what they think about them.

Horsing Around said...

Wooo..........where can I pick me up one of those darling little fly masks?

I think my girl
