Mr. Little Guy

BioMom and I have recently discovered this well known local hot-spot.

It is the home of one "Mr. Little Guy" a prolific "elf" who responds to notes left in its home, a conspicuously befloraled tree located on the south edge of our nearest little lake.

All notes.

This guy either has a serious complex (I am currently in the middle of John Irving's new book Until I Find You, which makes nearly constant references to the main character's penis, called "Little Guy.") or just a lot of time on his hands.

At this visit, we found two zip-locked baggies of 2x3 inch cards with type-written, personalized notes to every Tommy, Dickie and Johnny who had apparently ever written.

The FYO wrote a lovely little questionnaire to who we thought was a troll. It went something like this (oh, and it included a depiction of said troll on the back):

Dear Mr. Troll.

What is your name? Are you going to kindergarten? I am. Do you have any pets? I have a new cat. Penelope.

As of a week after leaving the note we had not yet heard back.

We'll keep you posted.

Maybe it's a little fairy home. I've read in Family Fun Magazine that some families start one and other contribute or plant one of their own. (However, the typewritten notes are a bit over the line!!!)
