when the doctor said

"keep the leg immobilized"

So gloomy ...
I think he is frozen

Julie said...

I suspect wizened is not your style ...

Amin said...

I agree that he is frozen.

Poor Gnome.

Malyss said...

On one side, the cold protects you from pain. On the other, it's only the knee that's suffering..
You don't need so much snow! Ü

Hilda said...

Oh poor little gnome! I'm glad you dug his face out so that he can breathe!

Fio said...

:-)
We both have gnomes on our blogs today :-)

Leif Hagen said...

Is it a snow troll?!

Jacob said...

Oh that is soooo funny! What part of "leg" did you not understand? Heh, heh.

Priceless photo. But, no, I don't think that's what the doc meant...the doc meant you should sit very quietly at your computer with the requisite beverage at hand, while hubby does the housework and cooking, and you futz around with CDP stuff!

I thought you would have gnome that!

Sharon Creech said...

I think the doctor said to put it on ice.

Spoooooky photo!

Kate said...

The snow looks fresh and new. Glad it's not you after your fall!

Rob and Mandy said...

Poor baby, he looks cold!
Take care!

Mo said...

hahahahahaha

Sunny said...

Well it definitely would work if the doctor said use ice!
Very amusing picture.
Sunny :)

Sharon said...

I'm so glad you are on the mend. Take care so that you can roam the countryside again soon. Love this little frozen gnome.

The doctor must have said that your sense of humor was not injured in any way.

I just watched a program about WWII last night and the man lived but was telling how his buddies had to use bayonets to chip away at the ice around his legs frozen into a blog of ice in his foxhole. He ended up with trench foot but don't think he lost any toes. Your post and words reminded me of that program.

Magpie said...

It looks like the gnome is in a body cast...I think you can aim a little below that. :) Take care.

Hey Kity with that knee, watch that first step. It's real doozy!

Bob Crowe said...

That's very clever. It's like the Travelocity gnome got on the wrong flight.

Irina said...

I am glad your sense of humour was not damaged with the leg! I think the doctor did not hope that you would follow his instructions that deep.

slim said...

or did the doc say "freeze"? I am glad your "funny bone" was not broken in your fall.

Hang in there, spring can't be too far...

Kaori said...

No wonder he looks so tired! Hope spring comes soon ;)

magiceye said...

:) hope the answer comes soon!

Virginia said...

Oh that's a good one. You still have your sense of humor intact. We're good to go.
Hugs and get well wishes abound.

Small City Scenes said...

I chuckled at the pic. Well you may have injured yourself but your sense of humor is intact. Good! MB

Carraol said...

Humour is the best medicine, this gnome is really immobilized, but ready to awake.

Hi sweet Brattcat
Please, be positive.I know this phase is complicate but soon everything will be okay and you can take your walkings around there.
** Poor gnome, it keeps so cold there!
Stay warm inside home and enjoy a good book.I hope this "phase"can be also productive because you write so well my dear friend.Who knows...You write some stories or even new poems.You are so talented!
Hugs
