Yes Virginia there is a Gnome war going on in Kansas. We have all heard about the range war of the west well now we have the gnome wars. This all started with just one gnome being left in our yard by a friend of the family, my wife found out who left the gnome and it was payback time. Well as most wars go it escalated to the grandmother and the grandkids getting in on it now it was three families against one (us well my wife) it was easy enough at first just store bought gnomes (they realy are not that easy to find) so my wife said can you build some gnomes for me and when the kids come over we will paint them, so it was out to the shop and I made 5 small gnomes they were painted and placed. Then one day we came home to find 57 gnomes in the yard. My wife said I need bigger gnomes and this is the result. Each one is 60”X34”X1/2” plywood I am sure there is a midnight raid in the works before Christmas (can’t get caught) . I would guess that the next will have to be full 8’X4’ sheet of plywood. (and the war goes on)
