#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!


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

  2. You certainly are the stuff legends are made of...in alphabetical order no less!

  3. Those crazy gnomes and their crazy lineage. lol. This is neat, can't wait to see the rest.

  4. 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

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

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

  7. 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!

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

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

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

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

  12. 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!)

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

  14. 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. . .

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

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

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

  18. 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.


  19. LOL.

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

    Stopping by from the #atozchallenge !

    And have a great blitz day, too!

  20. The Travelocity Gnome would be so proud.

    Stopping by for the A to Z Challenge. We are highlighting amazing authors this month. Check us out HERE.

  21. Thanks for the laugh today, Stormy!
    Happy Blitz Day!

  22. Definitely legendary, Stormy! Happy A-Z Launch day!

  23. 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.

  24. This deserves at least a smiley - at least your not an Alien
    Reflex Reactions

  25. Are you a minion?

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

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

  27. P.S. Happy early Blitz Day!!!! :D

  28. Yay, Stormy! You GO, gnome! Happy Blitz Day to you and Ms. Heather.

  29. I love this post! Quick and fun to read. Looking forward to more.

  30. 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!
