Newport, Pennsylvania — Some tiny gnome homes that were evicted from a Pennsylvania park are making magic elsewhere.
Little Buffalo State Park managers gave permission for Steve Hoke to create the mini houses in December but then decided they could affect wildlife habitat.
Hoke had made about 40 gnome houses in tree roots, in hollow logs and on stumps around the forest near Newport. He says children loved the houses but he removed them last month.
Millerstown and Duncannon offered to keep the gnome homes in local parks.
News site Pennlive.com (http://bit.ly/1Ronnij ) reported Monday that 11 gnome homes have been moved to Millerstown Community Park and three are in Noye Park in Duncannon.
Hoke says the reaction to the gnome homes has been positive and "people are thrilled to have them there."
Atta Boy Steve--thanks so much for making our world more lovely (and each other more loveable)!!!
We've got a gnome.
We have a couple, too. Had 'em for many, many years.
The others left, coz they were... er... gnomads...
I don't gnome any gnomes......
Let it be gnome, far and wide, that the replies to this topic were well received.
Obviously not as old as your jokes!
I suspect I might be the senior citizen, here, now that dear old Crikey's gone. Am I not?
I'll be able to get free prescriptions, in July.
Too late Katzy, we got our free prescriptions this week (at least, until next year, that is)
Fortunately I got mine ten years ago have made great use of it since.
We have to spend so much on our Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme for medicines on that schedule before they are then issued free of charge, until Next year, then the process occurs all over again. If the pharmaceutical is not on the scheme, too bad, so sad. The scheme works well for those who do not rely on medications. However, for those whose lives revolve around prescribed medications and are often not particularly well off, it creates a lot of financial stress early in the year.
OO! I feel almost young and vibrant, again!!
