A note about Roamy -

 When I first came up with the idea to send Roamy out into the world to explore... my intention was that this blog would be a place for people to visit where we could learn a little about the new places Roamy would see as he traveled through the blogosphere from blogger to blogger. In his little box there is a note that explains this.  The destination would not have to be anything fancy.. just someplace noteworthy that would teach us a little about life in your area.. whether it was a historic landmark or a cheesefactory or museum,  a monument or famous restaurant.. etc. etc. etc...   While ALL entries are very much appreciated, the visits more often than not were turning in to a few snapshots around the bloggers home because for whatever the reason, and I know life gets in the way, the hosting blogger wasn't able to show Roamy a point of interest in their area.  Some of you put HUGE effort into your posts and we really did get to know some interesting places and facts. I have loved this journey with Roamy so much and I don't want to see it end.  But his purpose needs to be revisited.  If you are a blogger who is interested in hosting Roamy, please consider this before you take him on. Again, it doesn't have to cost a cent in fancy location choice... just a piece of knowledge, a learning experience, about where Roamy is visiting.   Making it humorous is absolutely a bonus, but not necessary.

 I need to apologize to one or two bloggers who have sent a post in the past month but it wasn't published.  I had issues with mail and they were deleted before I recovered them.  Because I don't choose where Roamy goes, I don't have your contact info to know who you were.  If you still want to post, please resend your entry and I'll accommodate.  

Thank you all for your support of Roamy's adventures... we can get the ball rolling again in the right direction if anyone has interest.  If you have Roamy in your possession right now, please keep the above in mind, and I look forward to hearing from you.   You can reach me at


  1. Poor Roamy! Stuck in a host's house when he could be out sight-seeing. lol xo Diana

  2. Karen, I think I read it was in Sweden or somewhere overseas where his 'family' was 'kidnapped'. TY for your note ... the contents of his case should be left with him as he moves along on his trip ... they should be returned to you.

    It was an absolute delight to have Roamy ... you can not know the fun & joy & how tickled people were to get involved in our adventures. THANK YOU once again.

    Have an awesome week ~
    TTFN ~

  3. Umm, was Roamy abducted? I have some experience in this field. ;)

  4. Uh oh. Have you filed a missing gnome report?

  5. Glad to see that Roamy has completed his journey safely! Our story of Roamy visiting Central Pennsylvania was just mailed to you again. Thanks for letting him come to visit!

  6. If Roamy comes home, he would be welcome to visit Florida. I'm sure I have an adventure or two that he could share! I've enjoyed these posts! ♥
