Read 'Em All Tuesday: Deaf Dogs and Benevolent Gnomes

Today, being Tuesday (already?) it's time for Read 'Em All Tuesday again over at Tootsie's.  

Please allow me to introduce you to another of my favorite bloggers, John (aka El Gaucho) of a blog entitled: Deaf Dogs and Benevolent Gnomes.

How I came to find John's blog on the vast interwebs was serendipitous, like so many good things in life.  I usually read all comments at the end of other people's blog postings (yes, I'm nosy like that) and when I read one of John's comments, I found myself laughing out loud.  I had to find out more about this character, so I clicked on his name which led me to his blog.  There was no looking back, I was hooked. 

Here's his blog description:
'My attempts to move from California and create a happy and sustainable urban homestead in North Dakota, with some musings on life with deaf dogs, a gluten free girlfriend, and the occasional mischievous garden gnome.'
 
And here is John's introduction in his very own words, shamelessly pilfered from one of his early posts:


'I am John, son of John. I live in a house with one girlfriend, two very deaf dogs and two garden gnomes. The deaf dogs provide entertainment, solace, and a furry thing to pet. The garden gnomes inhabit the out of doors and not only watch over my humble abode, but scamper around late at night and become involved in some entertaining hijinks.'

El Gaucho has a fantastic sense of humor and wit.  Last night I told my friend Ann I was going to write about Deaf Dogs and Benevolent Gnomes for Tootsie's meme.  She was online at the time, too, and decided to search for John's blog while we were on the phone.  In a very short time I heard her chuckling, and I knew she'd found it.  That's just the reaction I have every time I read John's work, too.  

And here's another perk of reading El Gaucho's blog...in Ann's own words:

"Oh, that was funny!  He writes very well, doesn't he?  And his posts are really nice and short." 

Uh, yeah, Ann.  You're right.  John gets to the point rather quickly, or at least in under 4,502.3 words.  (Unlike me.  Ok, I can take a hint.)

You read me for War And Peace- length posts, but you can read John for pure enjoyment. 


And trust me, you won't doze off halfway through.

Please go and visit El Gaucho, you'll be glad you did!

I'll go check him out! Your posts can get long, Karen, but they are so enjoyable, I know when I click on them to have a few minutes and a nice drink of tea or cocoa so I can relax and enjoy the tales you weave so well. I can always count on a humorous story and a look at your beautiful garden - so, talk on, Karen - we are listening.

Hi Karen
your blog always has me laughing... and I love how you ramble on...its like Im there...
I spent last week making the move from Alberta Canada to Holland Michigan... just me and my faithful dog Binx... not bad for a 50+ aggoraphobic...me... not the dog. Maybe now I can start my own blog about learning to garden here...

El Gaucho said...

Holy Buckets!! I really don't know what to say, this is easily the nicest thing anyone has ever written about me, and the biggest compliment that I could get. Thanks Karen, not just for being mentioned on your blog, but for your very kind words. Many many thanks. I know that I'll definitely come back and reread this post when I need some positive encouragement.

Karen, Thank you for introducing me to another fabulous blog. Had me in stitches, with all the gnome antics better put my two in a box although Norman and Edger may well decide they don’t wan to go!

Thanks for the introduction to El Gaucho, I needed a good laugh and he provided! I'm happy to see you are not covered in knee deep snow yet, the garden pictures were so pretty yet. As always the Sall's aren't totally ready for Winter, the hose is laying on the front yard and one lawn chair is now blown into the back 40! Keep your great posts coming, I too enjoy them with a hot cup of coffee when I have an hour or two to catch up:)

Thanks for sharing - I enjoyed the blog immensely!
And I do enjoy the ramblings and non sequiturs (had to look up how to spell that!) of your blog. Even if they do go on for a while, they are always entertaining :)

Cat said...

What a high compliment, Karen...I'll have to check out his blog. Sounds entertaining!

Karen I will so be checking out his blog. I love a good laugh....as you know..... thanks for sharing.

Andrea said...

Hi Karen,and just like John (i will go there after this), you write very well too. Remember last time i told you i don't normally read long posts, but i read yours. At least yours is only 4,502.3, so i can still read that. If I will be joining Tootsie's new meme i might put in yours, but I am not joining, haha!

I too like John's blog and I bet he found me through your blog. His writing and comments are always fun. We share a love of gnomes I think.
