The battle between Hawaii, Cancun, and Jamaica is in full swing to get Travelocity’s beloved Roaming Gnome to their destinations for his next adventure and a little rest and relaxation. Voting ends on July 28 at 12 p.m. HDT (6 p.m. EDT). But could his final destination already be set?
As the Roaming Gnome was exploring Philadelphia today, this photo of who could be his wife or significant other taken in Hawaii was sent to me by a source who requested to remain anonymous. As you can see, the female Gnome above was spotted hanging out with a Black Eyed Pea, Smurfette, and a lady in a red dress in Honolulu. Does this lovely lady Gnome have any connection to the Roaming Gnome and his possible visit to Hawaii? Or is it just coincidence?
Meanwhile, the Hawaii media, including Honolulu Star-Bulletin’s “TheBuzz” Columnist Erika Engle, has been covering the possible arrival of the Roaming Gnomes in the islands, as well as KITV4’s Mahealani Richardson on the news this morning. As this blog was posted, Hawaii held a slight lead with 46% of the vote, Cancun with 39%, and Jamaica with 14%. It’s going to be a close race until the end.
In an effort to get my friends and family to vote, I’ve turned to my favorite social media networks Twitter and Facebook to encourage Hawaii fans to get the Roaming Gnome here! Only time will tell if the Hawaiian Islands will be victorious, but I like our chances, expecially with a special lady Gnome already waiting in Hawaii. 😉
In case you’re wondering what the heck you’ve been reading, don’t ask me. All I know is that lady Gnome in the photo above is my lovely wife Kelly. Hehehehehe! This photo was taken a couple Halloweens ago with her co-workers (yes, she made the costume herself). She, like me, would love nothing more than to see the Roaming Gnome in Hawaii and to welcome him with a fresh flower lei.
I leave you with this. Keep voting for Hawaii everyday and don’t forget to tell your family, friends, colleagues, and whoever will listen to you.
