Lady Chanterelle The Paper Mache Biplane

Lady Chanterelle,

Gnomey's biplane is finished and ready to touch the sky! He seems pretty pleased with it, although he hasn't taken it for a spin yet. He is content to stay on the ground for now and allowed me to take some photos while he sat inside the cockpit for the first time. He gave me a
big smile so I know he's a happy little gnome. Imagine all the places he'll go, the mushroom patches he'll visit!

It was Gnomey who named it. Chanterelle mushrooms are his favorites and since the plane is mostly all yellow Lady Chanterelle seemed to be the best name for it. He is also thinking about drawing a chanterelle mushroom on the tail end, but he's not sure yet...

But that's it for now, it's late here and Gnomey and I are so tired. It's a big job building a biplane! After a good rest I'm pretty sure there will be adventures. Maybe we'll see Gnomey flying through the clouds when he finds himself some goggles, a scarf, and a little courage.

OH! Gnomey,

You're on your way up!
You'll be seeing great sights.
You'll join the high fliers
who soar to high heights.

You won't lag behind, because you'll have the speed.
You'll pass the whole gang and you'll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you'll be the best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest!

Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!
