Yes, that is a gnome in my duffle bag, and I am happy to see you.

We are visiting Christina’s family in Houston to ring in the new year. I am carrying a gnome from Georgetown in my duffle bag, a gift for her folks she picked out.

It has a G on its hat. The G is for gnome.

Highs in the 50s and 60s, lows in the 30s. Looking forward to the Menil Collection, Forbidden Gardens, some thinking time with a laptop and a table outdoors, and a nap on the flight.
