Jaunt In Queens: A Garden Gnome Retrospective
Before going to this week’s Community Board 1 meeting the Mister and I took a jaunt in Queens. The week prior we were driven through Maspeth and I was smitten by the garden statuary. I simply had to return.
Welcome to Queens.
We like garden gnomes.
Be they sweeping…
sitting on the grass…
or fondling a rabbit’s ass.
Maspeth loves them some garden gnomes.
The above gnomes grace this day care center. I realize the following anecdote will only resonate with the select few who were born in the 1970’s, but I’ll recount it anyway.
Ma Heather: If someone gives you pretty stickers, don’t lick the back of them.
L’il Heather: Why?
Ma Heather: Bad things will happen.
I never licked a sticker in my life and this freaks me out.
*But I like Maspeth. A lot.
