A word about the mascot

The little dude you see hanging out there in Bracketthenge is named Sig. Yeah, he's named after Capt. Sig on Deadliest Catch. I have this thing about gnomes -- I can't explain it but I'm hooked. Sig was my first gnome. He was found at Goodwill. Not long after coming to live with us, the top of his hat was knocked off by one of those ruffians who live in the house. Can't even remember who now. Anyway, the other gnomes: Oddin, Thor, and the other guy whose name I can't remember might move around the yard, but Sig always hangs out at Bracketthenge. He's the welcome wagon. Bracketthenge itself was created five years ago after we tore out the nasty back steps. They sure did build things in a real interesting way back in the 1950s. Their construction became our yard art. And boy, do we have some yard art!

Remember, as BW says: you'll never roll a gnome!

  1. I have decided (in the interest of personal safety....) that our gnomes shall remain faceless. If they can't see you, they can't attack you ;)
