« The Hair Chronicles, Volume II: Mia | Main | 2008: It's Going To Be Better »



It was great seeing you today. I have a feeling my girls will be begging to visit you guys when they wake up. Thanks for helping make a great Christmas.


Well obviously this whole gnome business requires some explanation. Is it like the Travelocity Gnome on The Amazing Race? Will you win a vacation if you reach the matt first?! I'm glad the family event went well. At least it didn't sound like you had to live in fear of there being moonshine, guns, ignorance and tempers, which is always a concern when attending events at the homes of my seldom seen white trash cousins. Yeah, moonshine. They actually make moonshine.


These gnomes; do they actually speak to you? When you have to drive them around, I mean. Do they tell you where they want to go, or do you get to decide where to take them? I kind of like the idea of a gnome mascot.

Darr, you have relatives that make moonshine too? My Uncle used to have a still, and I had a great Aunt from the Bayou who was pretty mysterious. I never knew what kind of potions and powders I was going to find in her bag. She was so much fun! I really miss her.


Doesn't everyone? Who knew?

We were so glad all of you were able to make it to family Christmas. It was great seeing you and catching up. Mia is an absolute sweetie too. We look forward to checking up on the gnome thru out the year and hopefully we don't have to wait until next Christmas to see you again. We hope it's sooner and more often (not just on online). Take care and have fun with the gnome.
Love, Jim & Tammie

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love

    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)

  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
