It was here back in the early months of 2007 while working on my path that I quite unexpectedly tripped over a wheel barrel full of tiny stones. As a matter of fact, the whole wheelbarrel was pretty small to begin with. Immediately of course, out of NOWHERE came this little voice and yelled at me for being so clumsy!
I can't begin to tell you how startled I was when a plump little gray haired fellow in a pointy red hat stepped from behind the leaf of a hosta and slowly began to smile at me!
ME.....sprawled there on the stone path looking as if I came from outer space or something! And him??....working himself into a full blown chuckle over the whole incident!
Now I ask you how embarrassing is that??
