#atozchallenge - Stormy's Letter A!

Stormy the Weather Gnome

26 Things That Gnomes Can Do
But You Can't


Gnomes can track their lineage
to ancient myths and legends.

You heard me, LEGENDS!

My gnome-cestors might be ancient and mythical but I am  ...  LEGENDARY!!!!

And, I'm an Aries!


Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

You are a legend, Stormy!

M. J. Joachim said...

Personally, I'm not looking forward to getting ancient. But then, I won't look nearly as cute as you when I do, Stormy.

Hi, Heather. Stormy doesn't look a day over 100! He's not ancient yet. ;) And I'm sure he has quite a fascinating lineage!

Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

Cathy Kennedy said...

Talk of ancient makes me a little nervous because some days I feel a little ancient. lol

Dragon Tails and Scales said...

This should be legendary.
Fun topic!
Cheers for another A to Z challenge
A Plus!

I wish I knew my ancient lineage! Way to go stormy! oh and i am a pisces Teresa From the following sites Fangirl Next Door, Stormy's Sidekick, Quackin Over Disney Geek On!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

LOL! I can go back about 160 years, but that's it.

Tony Laplume said...

Well, this should be fun!

Crystal Collier said...

Hey, I'm pretty legendary too. Yup. Me and my cheese. ;)

randi lee said...

What a fun post! Certainly looking forward to more of these!

cintascorner.com said...

I love gnomes! And I'm an Aries too!

Tina said...

GREAT idea for a theme! Stormy, you are legendary, and your rousing speech yesterday is one of the best uses of a movie quote I've ever heard. That is saying a lot since movie quoting is an Olympic-level sport in my family!
So Stormy, I'm awarding your this (virtual - Jeremy is on hiatus or I'm sure he'd make me a fabulous one...) Gold Medal In Movie Quoting (a little known event in both the summer and winter Olympics!)

Hahah! Alrighty then, Stormy!

Anoosha said...

Stormy you rock !Wish I could have a cute gnome like Stormy

D.G. Hudson said...

So I'll be interested in what gnomes know, and be back to see if Stormy impresses. . .

Ancient is a good start, and I know a few Aries, you have to keep a eye on them. . .

Chrys Fey said...

Funny post! Oh, and I'm also an Aries. ;) My birthday is on the 12th. :D

Kelley said...

Happy Blog Blitz!!
Those gnomes kinda scare me...

Too cute :)

Fe said...

Yerss, Stormy. You are most certainly a legend or is that 'leg end'? Sorry Story, couldn't resist...

It's good to see you again.


J. Lenni Dorner said...


I don't know... my tribe is pretty old. But we aren't as well known as you, oh great gnome.

Stormy! Dude, long time no see. Love the clouds in that picture. Well, I definitely feel ancient and I used to know a cat named Aries, so there you go.

Are you a minion?

#352 needs to re-write her address, leave the period out. Found my way anyway.

Susan Kane said...

Is #356 on this or not? no appropriate post...mention of A to Z.

Chrys Fey said...

Julie Jordan Scott said...

I have a friend who abhors gnomes. I think I should direct him here. Now. Yesterday. Forever.

I'm feeling sort of ancient. I talk in ancient languages with words like typewriter. Television antaennae (Can't even remember how to spell it!) dial a phone. Record player.


Happy A to Zing!
