    I’m guessing dark red, all-weather, heavy duty nail polish and a light trim.

    A lonely gargoyle named Gary/ Wanted badly to marry.

    But frozen in place/ For so long , the sad case

    Rendered him dateless/ Thus leaving him mateless.

    But by a stroke of good luck/ A lightning bolt struck,

    And intense electron infusion/ Allowed his extrusion.

    Off he flew from his spire/ On wings of desire.

    Eventually it seems/ He met the goyle of his dreams,

    And thus did marry/ The happy gargoyle Gary.

    That lovely gargoyle sits atop Notre Dame, surveying the City of Lights. https://theoldwolf.Com/Gargoyle.jpg

    …and all this time I thought they used pegs to keep them on their parapets…

    …no manicurist can kill me…

    …I’m no man!…

    …overlooking the city sat the ancient gargoyle…

    …though he had no eyes to see…


    …that’s where English gets complicated…

    …what exactly does overlooking the city mean?…

    …some medieval…

    …and some not so medieval…

    …church’s have strange and compelling gargoyle type statues…

    …like astronauts…

    …Darth Vader…

    …naughty positions…

    …plus more! …

    … a once had a parapets…

    …a dog and a cat…

    …I hide behind the parapets of my own making…


    …they’re more like Chia Pets…

    ….but I’m still emotionally invested…

    You know what would really take a lot of effort from Gary? Doing it himself!

    There was one applicant, earlier. Due to a misunderstanding, it was a file clerk willing to work for scale.

    I wonder which scale the manicurist used. For model railroads I prefer HO scale. Especially around Christmas and then 3 times. For architectural drawings 1:50 is a good scale for construction documents.

    This gargoyle, secretly suffered the shame of funky toe fungus for centuries, is now working as a manicurist.

    The manicurist thought he had toe fungus but turns out it was just moss.

    Gargoyles are always at the tippy top…be sure to give a very generous tip….and hope she doesn’t fall off the parapet on the way down.

    Manicurist or Gargocurist? It’s rare to find a gargoyle with such fine grooming habits. I wonder if the service includes horn sharpening and polishing?

    He said it’ll be nice when they get the roof fixed and he can practice spitting hot oil on tourists from Spain and England.

    You can never tell if a gargoyle enjoyed the manicure because they’re stone-faced.

    I am temporarily hobbled by the thought that “parapets” may not be le mot juste here! Gargoyles tend to hang out on Gothic cathedrals, plus an occasional Chrysler Building or two. In neither case are the lofty spires and galleries strictly “parapets”!
