Gargoyles!

Everybuddy, I have a skerry story to tell you today!

Here I was, relaxing next to my gargoyle friend. This is a nice gargoyle. You can tell on account of the flowers he is holding.
Suddenly, I sensed an evil presence!
I do not know what caused this creepy feeling!
Maybe it was just my imagination....

61 Notes for Daisy:

Sparkle said...

Uh-oh, Daisy, I think your good time is about to be ruint!

Fisher and Staff said...

Watch your back, Daisy!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Hello Daisy!

We think Harley is about to enlighten you since he is a font of useful information. He is about to tell you that the statue is actually called a "Grotesque" although it is a common mistake to call it a Gargoyle.
In architecture, a gargoyle is a carved stone grotesque with a spout designed to convey water from a roof and away from the side of a building. Preventing rainwater from running down masonry walls is important because running water erodes the mortar between the stone blocks. A trough is cut in the back of the gargoyle and rainwater typically exits through the open mouth.
Yours is definitely a Grotesque! And a very nice one at that!

Milo and Alfie xx

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

PS: The term originates from the French gargouille, originally "throat" or "gullet". Latin gurgulio, gula, gargula ("gullet" or "throat") and similar words derived from the root gar, "to swallow", which represented the gurgling sound of water!

Daisy said...

Thanks, Milo and Alfie! I never knew that before!

Lisa said...

Oh, no! Watch out! It's a Harleygoyle! Skerry indeed!

Huffle Mawson said...

I know exactly how you feel Daisy!

Mr Puddy said...

MOL....Harley..you are really good at making your sis freak out...heh..heh..Can't wait to see her SCREAM !! HA!

Simba said...

Uh oh, I have the same creepy feeling as you do.

I read Milo and Alfie's comment which is verry interesting. Maybe Harley will be a grotesgue too, though IO don't think he is very grotesque today.

The Island Cats said...

Nope, Daisy...your insticts are good!!

"Lois Grebowski" said...

Looks like that "sinister" presence was going to do a surprise pounce on ya...LOL

Max the Quilt Cat said...

Look to the left Daisy... Look to the left.

pawhugs, Max

Fuzzy Tales said...

Daisy, you two crack us up. We can't imagine what caused your creepy feeling, either. ;-P

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Vidock said...

Yes, Harley could probably explain it ALL to you.....

By the way, in Japan, they tell scary (ghost) stories in the summer to help people "cool down"!!!!

Forever Foster said...

Eeek! Run, Daisy!

-d ma said...

poor harley. it's not good to be below a flower holding gargoyle on the totem pole.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Watch out Daisy - he's behind you!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

The Meezers or Billy said...

oh no, TWO gargoyles!

Kali and Aswell said...

oh! you telled skerry stories very good!

We liked your story!!

And She liked to learn about grotesques too.

Random Felines said...

Yep - we saw that guy looking around the corner at you. So much for your personal time with the grotesque (cool new thing to learn).

OKcats said...

That photo of Harley peeking around the corner cracked us up!!!!

Angus Mhor said...

Daisy, you're such a hoot! I know Senor Quinn has a tendency to ruin your good time, but he's sure funny whilst he's doin' it!

Angie, Catladyland said...

Harley is way skerrier than the gargoyle! Beware!

Cat said...

Oh Daisy, we don't think Harley could ever be an evil presence!

Lin said...

Dang. Harley ruins EVERYTHING! :(

Marg said...

Yup, someone is sneaking up to you. Watch out. Maybe the gargoyle will protect you from that silly Harley. He does seem to always be around, isn't he.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Daisy it looks like once again Harley has ruing your good time. This time he interrupted you hanging out with your gargoyle friend!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I think the gargoyle is not doing a real good job of protecting you--I think he is being too nice...

Ariel said...

lol...Brothers :)

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

We hear the music from Jaws in that picture of Harley on the wall perch peeking around the cabinet!!!

When we perch on the corners of the peoples bed mom calls us gargoyles too!

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

We just read Milo & Alfie's comment.
We didn't know that either.
But when Mom calls us "grotesque", we're gonna protest that!

Grace said...

Goodness, how did you get up there? I like gargoyles too!

Winston, Kizzy and Tika of Two Cats and a Pug said...

Oh my.... Daisy...

TIka and I got out the poppycorn and sat down to read the blog. I was yelling at the computer "run Daisy Run away! It was like watching a thrilling skerry movie. "behind you Daisy behind you" I yelled next. OMC I can't watch!

Then...... my silly sister Tika yells out between munches of poppycorn...."oh.... look at that Harley, isn't he dreamy, sigh" I swear, I sawed "lust" in her eyes!!!!

Harley would need to grow some horns to be convincingly evil. Maybe you could help him with that Daisy! Mwahaha.

Brudders!!!

Pricilla said...

The publicist has a sweet one too named Dedo. The male person bought it for her in Vancouver, Canada and carried it back for her all the way to New Jersey. And then they took it with them in their trailer adventures all over the USA. It's now in the yurt.

She loves her Dedo

Creepy is right! Harley is slowly creeping up on you -- so watch out, Daisy! Don't turn your back to him or he might jump you!
