Have Gnome, Will Travel
My beloved Oma was partial to garden gnomes. When she died last October, I rescued 5 of her gnomes and gave them prestigious plots in and around my home. Because Oma can't come with my Mom and me to Germany this time, I've invited Cedric to come along as her proxy. Luckily, he's the traveling sort with an over-sized passport and sensible suitcase.
Oma, I think, would be pleased. Cedric, for sure, is excited. Marzipan, warm ale, and a taste of smoked eel are high on his culinary list. And he's itching to sway to an accordion's lilt while wearing short, leather pants.
Wir ist gonna have some fun.
And on another happy note, my magazine, The Soul In Bloom~ spring issue, is on sale from now until Mother's day. Who doesn't love a sale? To order your cheaper-than-usual copy, go HERE.
