Some fine examples.... Gargoyles...

LOL. Fine examples of the sculptor's art!

Maybe we should have included some in our renovations! I haven't heard that many medieval church buildings had serious leaks from their gutters...

Dear Janice,

I think that you are correct about the medieval roofs not leaking, but all that lead was quite a burden to bear!

I love the gargoyles, and I would like to add some to my home. I'm afraid, however, that the homeowners association would object.

Fr. D,

Too true. Wish I could say Bishop Schori's and the Episcopal church in America's behavior could be attributed to lead poisoning!

We had a lady (British) in our former subdivision who had gargoyles she had collected on her front porch. She finally had to move them to her back yard.
