Gnome Door Project (Update)

Last September, we set up a little gnome door along a walking trail in a state park (original post here). Yesterday we checked on it and it was still there...slightly obscured by some weeds and branches.

So we cleaned it up a bit.

Currently seeking gnomes.

I will not die
I will invade your house
I can live one week without a head
For real

It was on a dreary night of November that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils. With an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, I collected the instruments of life around me, that I might infuse a spark of being into the lifeless thing that lay at my feet. It was already one in the morning; the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open; it breathed hard, and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs.

Oh, Spring, trying to hide our gnarly Halloween tree.

We can still see her Halloween fingers up there at the top.

So go away.

The Curse Of Chief Cornstalk

The first Point Pleasant sighting took place on November 14th, 1966. Newell Partridge, a Point Pleasant resident, was watching television at home around 10:30PM when the television turned to static and he heard a loud noise outside. His dog began to howl in the direction of his barn, and Partridge saw two red eyes glowing near the barn. The dog ran in the direction of the eyes, and Newell locked himself inside his house. In the morning, Newell found numerous dog tracks outside, but he never found his dog.
