Another gnome has found a home (on my front porch)

This is Uncle Bob because he reminds me of my great-grandmother's youngest brother who smoked a pipe.  His name was also Uncle Bob.  See?  It's possible to know great-grandmothers and great-great uncles when you come from a long line of child brides.

I like Uncle Bob the Gnome. I look at him, and I think of the lyrics:

"Sometimes the lights all shinin on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip it's been."

I am sure I would have liked Uncle Bob the Great Uncle had I known him. I don't what songs would fit him.

He looks like a zombie gnome, which is sort of perfect.
