I eat my breakfast at a small diner in town. Been doin it forever. 48 years ago bride said she didn't do breakfast. While at the diner I sit and whittle. I whittle small Santa pins/ornaments, and gnomes.
One of the newer fellows that was in the diner this morning saw me whittlin a Santa pin. I heard him ask, "are Santa's the only he carves"? Some one else answered, "no he carves gnomes too".
