For the Love of Gargoyles


I’ve always had a fascination with gargoyles.  I don’t know why.  I love ornate architecture, old houses, etc.  Gargoyles were originally used on buildings to divert the water from the roof, so that the water would not run down the building and deteriorate the  mortar.  It was also suggested that they were meant to ward off evil spirits.

With Halloween being just around the corner, I hope you will indulge me as I add a bit of whimsy to this usually dark and sinister creature.  I’ve captioned each of the evil pictures below.  Enjoy!

hehehe, my pretty!

Oy!  My aching head!!

I’m a little nervous.  I meet her dad tonight!

The cable co. said between 10 and 2!  This is gonna take all freakin’ day!


Why?  Just…why?

Yes Mom, I put on my raincoat!!

**  I hope you enjoyed this.  If you have some fun captions for these, I’d love to see them.  Leave them in the comments below for me.
