October TUSAL and a birthday

So much for posting any summer TUSALs, but here's October!  I really have been stitching, but for whatever reason it just doesn't look that way.
I found this pic on the internet, but couldn't find out where it originated from to give credit.  Nathan saw it and now wants one... we'll see!
Sunday was my Dad's birthday so we went to visit for the day.  I thought he was 74, but I gave him an extra year by mistake. 
 His friend gave him a garden gnome that has a motion sensor and speaks when activated.  Cute, but one can only hear it so many times!  Here's a few of the things he says -
"Let's shake hands... just kidding!"
"Hey you, no you're not crazy, I am talking to you"
"Psst... Is the coast clear? That flipping dog thinks I am a hydrant!"
"I see London, I see France, oh dear, I see someone's underpants"
"You know what they say? There's no place like gnome"
Here's our group family photo - we can't leave the house until Dad takes enough pictures to drive the boys crazy!

The Tardis Pumpkin is by a guy called Sean Fallon. My new discovery is Google Images search using a photo. Here's a link:
