    A note posted on one of the gnome homes: "Thank you for your recent correspondence. Regarding your request to meet today, I am sad to report that I will be out of the tree and will not be available. However, I have set the table for tea and do hope that you will enjoy it in my absence. Best Regards, R.L."
