The flower girls came over to our house to play with my visiting grand daughter, so they did not immediately get to the back yard, and therefore had not discovered the Gnomes clothes line. Later on in the day my grand daughter remembered this and suggested that they go out side and play. It wasn't too long before they all came running up and telling of the discovery of the Gnomes clothes line with a quilt and pajamas hanging on it. They were so excited that they forgot to read at the note. They all said at once, "and there's a note too". To that I asked, "whats the note say"? They looked at each other and turned around and ran back to the Gnome door yelling, "we forgot it".
Later my grand daughter (10 years old) said to me, "pa pa they really do believe there are Gnomes living under their deck". To this I breathed a sigh of relief. My grand daughter, the one who has said she cannot keep a secret; had kept one.
Tonight I just have to leave this note for the girls.
