Yesterday morning I noticed Zinny at the Gnome house. I suspected that she had left a message to Gnomey. But because of the nice sunny and warm day I could not sneak over to retrieve the message without being seen. This AM while the girls were up on the main road waiting for the school bus I retrieved these notes, to Gnomey from Zinnia. The first note needs some translation. "DEAR GNOMEY DO YOU LIK FLOWERS? WHY DID ( I want a) GNOME TOOTH BECAUSE I WAS WONDERING WHAT THEY LOOKED LIKE". Looks like Gnomey might be getting some "flowers", if he plays his cards right. The second note concerns me a bit. She's asking Gnomey for a Gnome pencil. This could be a trap, you know. I've already been backed into a corner by a six year old, with the Gnomes replying via a computer generated messages. I'll have to think about this one for a while.

Thanks for the advice on the messages from Zinnia to Gnomey. I'll work up something and return these messages to her....

She's boxing you in..lol. Okay, just say, "I never use a pencil but sometimes I use a crayon so I'll share half of my favorite green one with you. Then just get a crayon, break it in half and put it in the mailbox!

Too late Holee! I made a 3/4 inch pencil with real lead. Used that real fine lead from a mechanical pencil. Drilled a hole in a 1/8th inch dowel and glued the lead in. Then carved the pencil down to the small size.

Aren't you so clever, Tom. See what you can come up with when you're both handy and creative.

I think the pencil will stop her in her tracks if she had an inkling of doubt about the gnomes.

I love it!

I don't know, next question she might ask is why Gnomey doesn't write her a note with a pencil.

She's going somewhere with that loaded pencil question.
