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

Uh-oh, Daisy, I think your good time is about to be ruint!
Watch your back, Daisy!
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
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!
Thanks, Milo and Alfie! I never knew that before!
Oh, no! Watch out! It's a Harleygoyle! Skerry indeed!~Lisa Co9T
I know exactly how you feel Daisy!
MOL....Harley..you are really good at making your sis freak out...heh..heh..Can't wait to see her SCREAM !! HA!
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.
Nope, Daisy...your insticts are good!!
Looks like that "sinister" presence was going to do a surprise pounce on ya...LOL
Look to the left Daisy... Look to the left.pawhugs, Max
Daisy, you two crack us up. We can't imagine what caused your creepy feeling, either. ;-P
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"!!!!
Eeek! Run, Daisy!
poor harley. it's not good to be below a flower holding gargoyle on the totem pole.
Watch out Daisy - he's behind you!!Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
oh no, TWO gargoyles!
oh! you telled skerry stories very good! We liked your story!! And She liked to learn about grotesques too.
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).
That photo of Harley peeking around the corner cracked us up!!!!
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!
Harley is way skerrier than the gargoyle! Beware!
Oh Daisy, we don't think Harley could ever be an evil presence!
Dang. Harley ruins EVERYTHING! :(
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.
Daisy it looks like once again Harley has ruing your good time. This time he interrupted you hanging out with your gargoyle friend!
I think the gargoyle is not doing a real good job of protecting you--I think he is being too nice...
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!
We just read Milo & Alfie's comment.We didn't know that either. But when Mom calls us "grotesque", we're gonna protest that!
Goodness, how did you get up there? I like gargoyles too!
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!!!!K & T
Harley would need to grow some horns to be convincingly evil. Maybe you could help him with that Daisy! Mwahaha.the critters in The CottageP.S. The picture of Harley peeking around the corner is adorable!
GASP! And then?....???
Did the gargoyle get you?Benny & Lily
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
Daisy, you are up so high!
We think Harley just wanted to play!Happy Thursday to both of you!!~ The Bunch
Oh no, be careful Daisy!
Eek! Behind you Daisy!!!
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!Now I'm really scared.

Did Harley ruin your good time again Daisy? Even if you go as high as the ceiling, he still has to find you!

Daisy, we don't think it was your imagination that caused the creepy feeling! But we don't think the presence is evil, just pesky.
