"Lame idiot"? What's up with the name calling hun? Look, you have a busy day ahead of you, teaching your granddaughter the wire hanger method, so have fun and enjoy the rest of what's left of your life. Paula, I'm sure, will find another gnome at Walmart.

Taralynn, your lame. Oh, and i'm sorry, I didn't realize you troll the HF Patch because you live on the Gold Coast! I would love to see what you call a residence. Anyways, your boring and I could care less what you think. I'm sorry that whoever/whatever raised you didn't teach you any manners, but I'm glad trolling fills a void in your life.. In the infamous words of Buzz Lightyear (you should get the reference, as this is about your maturity level) "You are a sad, strange little man, and you have my pity. Farewell!"

Did you really just quote Buzz Lightyear? Also, it's *You're... as in you're making this too easy for me. Anyway, I'm done. Paula, you've been a great sport. More power to you and your gnomes. xoxo
