So long, and thanks for all the fish!

Well, it’s been a great six years since Gnomeland’s grand opening, and since then we’ve provided a great home for gnomes in rural New Hampshire. Alas, all good things must come to an end.

Our hosts, Ariane and Brendan, have decided to move to the West Coast, and, alas, will not be able to take Gnomeland with them. So Gnomeland closed to the public on May 4th, and we are in the process of finding gnew homes for all our resident gnomes.

Thanks for all the support in the last six years!

Gnomes in the Service

We at Gnomeland are proud of Feldwebel Camel. Shortly after the grand opening of Gnomeland, he grew restless with his practice maneuvers around the yard, and decided instead that it was time to enlist. He headed down to the recruitment station, and due to his extensive experience in outdoor concealment, he was quickly trained and deployed to Afghanistan.

He recently sent this shot back to the folks back at Gnomeland showing that he’s enjoying his time at Camp Leatherneck.

Lost Gnome: Irwin!

Onkel Irwin has had a lifelong obsession with alligators, so when he heard that a coworker of mine was headed to Florida, he hopped in his luggage and left. He made it safely to Florida, and had several days enjoying both the Royal Pacific Resort and Universal Studios Orlando.

Alas, we don’t think he ever made it to Gatorland. Onkel Irwin was last seen being escorted from the premises by two uniformed employees of the Royal Pacific, and despite several emails and pleas, particularly from his Aunt Brunhilde, he hasn’t been heard from since.

Anyone seen or heard from Irwin? We worry about him!

Gnome of the Day: Lazenius

Lazenius Gnome III, or “Lazy”, as most people call him, is in many ways the exact opposite of Fritz. Lazy is only serious about one thing, and that’s relaxing, usually leaning again one of his favorite mushrooms. That said, he’s taken a leadership role at Gnomeland, leading Gnomeland’s education programs in relaxation, gustatorial appreciation, and mycology.

Gnome of the Day: Fritz

Fritz is a founder, and the third member of the Gnomeland Board of Directors. He’s a very stern gnome, and takes his gnoming seriously. While other gnomes are lazing about and eating mushrooms, he’s, well, being serious.

Gnome of the Day: Wilhelm

Today’s gnome of the day is Wilhelm.  The founder of Gnomeland, Wilhelm was the first to arrive at Gnomeland, and now literally hundreds of his relatives have come to join him (if you look carefully, you can see the distinct features of Wilhelm’s family in about a third of Gnomeland’s residents)
