Should I get these?




Should I get these for my entry gate?





I don't know about you, but I kinda like them.








































Gargoyles were used as drain pipes or Gutter spouts.


The ones that were not drains were referred to as Grotesque's for decorating buildings. Think of them as mooning or thumbing your nose at the Evil spirits .



























I Guess Paris has the most interesting of them all.








































They used them in Churches to make you think of the pains of hell.
Like you better come inside.



























This is some water fountain.







These two were real impish looking
but I want the one below with wings..














I am planing to buy two of these.
I found them on the internet and
I will cement them to the Entry posts.


This guy is real scary.
He should scare off anybody.
wanting to cruse up my drive.

Turkey Day









We express Gratitude
never forget that the highest
appreciation is not to utter words,
But how we live by them.
John F. Kennedy











The Macy's Day Parade starts at 9 AM




then the Dog show.





May your stuffing be tasty,

your turkey brown and plump.


May the potatoes and gravy never have a lump.


May your yams be delicious, your pies


be the prize.


And May Thanksgiving Dinner stay off your thighs.

Now on Thanksgiving Day all Americans sit down to dinner at the same time-HALFTIME.




I plan to do as Martha Stewart does.
When her husband says what's for dinner,
She says " reservations".




No really I have company coming.










I DO PLAN TO GO TO THE HARNESS RACES.
Martha's out for Thanksgiving
. Go girl!!









The Mother turkey said to


her miss behaved son, If your Father could
see you now, he would turn over in his gravy..



To all my wonderful Blogging buddies





may you all have a perfect turkey and be with your family.
