We lost an important man yesterday........
« on: December 06, 2013, 02:09:01 PM »
His name was Kabouter Prikprak (don't ask, it's dutch):


We had a big storm yesterday, with winds well over 100 km/h. Our faithful garden gnome was knocked over and, as you can see, suffered some major, fatal brain damage. Since we don't have a garden (2 stories up), he's been sitting on his mushroom on our balcony for over 5 years, never complaining about the lack of a fishing rod or a wheelbarrow. He was one of the few things our cat never attacked, and will be sorely missed.

Now, you didn't see that one coming, did ya?  ;)

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Try not to judge too harshly.  People can't help it.  Gnome is where the heart is.

So true. Sometimes we cannot help but think of our elf above all others.
