Gnome mojo

For anyone who has known me for more than five minutes, you're well aware of Franklin. For those of your poor, unfortunate souls who have never had the pleasure of my company, Franklin is my Travelin' Gnome. Yeah, I stole the idea from 'Amelie'. Whatever.

Anyway, Franklin's been with me for a little over 4 years, and we've been everywhere together: Florida, Seattle, New York City, Mexico, Tennessee, Virginia, the Carolinas, Boston, the Caribbean and, of course, all over Georgia. Franklin's recent trip was to the city of Macon, where he met NASCAR driver Tony Stewart.

Incidentally, Tony Stewart tried to sign my gnome at first. Duh.

After meeting Franklin, Tony Stewart has gone on to win the next two NASCAR races. Coincidence? I don't think so.

All hail the power of my gnome!

Franklin rawks hugely!

And hey, that cutie Tony ain't half bad either! Left handed to boot!

Next time you pass through the raleigh area, lemme know.

I've been told I look like Tony Stewart. What do you think?

(This doesn't give you permission to post my picture with the gnome.)
