When Mike and I first had designs on buying our home, we took pictures of it and sent them to my ma-in-law and my parents. We took pictures of everything - the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, even the yard.

The first thing we were told was: You have a statue of St. Francis in the yard. If the seller leaves it, you have to keep it. Being the lapsed Catholics that we are, Mike and I decided to listen to our parents and keep the statue.

But we felt St. Francis might have been a little bit lonely.

Yesterday, when I got home from work, I noticed UPS had left me something.

Gary had arrived.

Photos, for your entertainment:

Lonely St. Francis

Gary joins St. Francis

Introducing... Gary Gator the Great Gnome. He will protect our yard from stray cats and skunks!

Is it blasphameous to put Gary Gator the Great Gnome alongside St. Francis? Notice we left St. Francis in a prominent place.

Gary looks quite comfortable in your yard. Just make sure that "Travelocity Gnome" doesn't fly by and decide to take Gary on a trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jacky

It is not blasphameous... just shows your bad taste in colleges!

I'm sure St Francis enjoys the company. :)
