Request For Gnomey Family Photo!

After a few days of no message activity around the Gnome house door, I found this message pinned to the door this morning. And it sure looks like I'm in trouble. Well, not real trouble, because I have the collective imaginations of lots of readers that had better step up and offer some guidance. A "family photo" has been requested. This is where I need some serious, imaginative (one can do both, can't they?) help.

I'll have to do some further checking about the "mailbox" that Zinnia is referring to. There are a few empty nut shells that have appeared by the door, but this message was still pinned to the door.

And the salad, I think I can handle myself. Zinnia asked me the other day if Gnomes like grass to eat. I responded that I didn't think so. I said that they probably liked the same kinds of salad we liked....

So far, I am thinking they still believe....

A photo is a bit of a challenge. Two ways to deal with that: 1) find (carve!) some gnome miniatures and take some pictures of them, or 2) say that they don't have a camera and have their portrait painted or drawn instead. Either would be fun.

Or you can say that they are superstitious about cameras 'stealing their souls' or something like that. Can't wait to see what you figure out!

While doing my gnome research, I found out that they cannot be photographed. If someone tries to take their photograph, the frame comes up blank, just as though they weren't there. If they could be photographed, then people might be able to capture them and perhaps do mean things to them. That is why very few humans have ever seen a gnome in person.

But, to people who believe that gnomes do exist, they are very willing to become silent and invisible friends, and will always leave something of themselves to those offering friendship...like a glimpse of their washing in the line, a dropped hat, etc.

Great story Kaaren, but these two are pretty smart, picking up the computer writing. They might say, well I can see the clothes so why can't I see you?

I still looking for more photo's Tom. The snow ones seem to hide them pretty well so they might do it.

All great ideas. Thanks for reading and leaving an idea. I dare say, that I'll probably combine several ideas into one. I think Holee may have something there. The girls are very smart, and clever. But still???
