Bed rest following the surgery.

Reflecting on RAGBRAI at a quaint cemetary.

Making friends in N. Liberty

Loading up the truck at O'Grady's in CB, I noticed the gnome had a bead of sweat building on his brow. It took just a half a second, after placing him on the Penske, he jumped to the ground. He knew this was going to be a scary trip. Looking down, I saw him busted in two at the knees. A collective gasp went out from Flashback. Was this going to doom the gnome's trip?

Jen O. quickly assessed the situation. "I can fix him." I had my doubts. He was busted bad. Jen would bring him back on Tuesday in Jefferson. The operation was a success. With a princess band-aid on his knee, and a Flashback tat on his pointy hat, he was ready to roll.

Looks like this years travels were hard on old Gnomie. I'm glad to see he got all patched up and a soft bed to sleep in on one of those nights.

I'g happy to hear you guys had a good time!

Had a good time? More like "still is"

He snuck away the night we got back from RAGBRAI... haven't seen him since.

Word has it he was headin' to rub elbows w/ Lance.
