Obi-wan and the Gnome

We have a garden gnome!

From Miscellaneous

It’s difficult to see in the photo, but he’s holding an axe in his right hand. But Obi-wan has his light sabre, so I guess that makes it an even fight.

In other news, I now have 50 Facebook “friends.” I’ve decided that’s my limit. If I accept any more friend requests, it means I’ll have to kill off one of my other friends. That works for me. Facebook is a reminder of how little I have in common with any of my “friends.” My favourite friend is Whole Wheat (aka Jim Kloss). No joking. I look at everything my other friends post, and I either have no interest or I can’t relate to them at all. Jim went out to work in his garden the other day. I can relate to that.

  1. sniff sniff.. can I be your friend…or mayby your handicapped older brother type figure…facebook eeesh…won’t be seeing me there…just got back from a livestock auction and meetings with health inspectors and another with the city manager…now I have to go walk my dog…can you relate to any of that….I just want a friend….

  2. I will not send you a friend request. I ignore all my friends, I blocked all their postings, I do not answer their requests for joining or belonging or playing games. I do draw graffitti with Linda Davick, but that’s an ARTISTIC endeavor. We’ll just continue to interface at arm’s length here at SWT.

    Of my 50 friends, there are less than 10 whose postings I don’t block. And I don’t think I have to worry about offending them here because they don’t read SWT; they’re all reading Facebook.

    Ditto.

    You’re the best, Mean Jean.
