Gargoyles

A new addition to my exterior decor – Gargoyles!

Takes care of the gushing water and scares away encroachers from my orchard. Nasty people stealing my fruits after all the hard work I put in.

I must say it has been very effective. Even my hounds couldn’t keep away encroachers at first. But now nobody dares enter my property.

However I have noticed that my hounds don’t bark anymore at night. They have always been very active otherwise.

Also I don’t see too many homeless people around. They used to frequent my place asking for food and clothing.

There was something in the news the other day regarding the brutal killing of the homeless people. It said the dead bodies didn’t have a heart!

I wonder who is the culprit. I too found a few bones strewn in my orchard, I buried them away.

Strange things are happening these days.

      1. You are very welcome. That gargoyle begs to have his story told, doesn’t he.
