Gargoyle News!

After following the Gargoyle activity on 9N in Upper Jay for over a year now, I often wondered if the humans they guarded even knew about their fan base. I created different scenarios about the people that lived in the yellow house at the end of the driveway and every time I received an "Anonymous" comment about the Gargoyles, I wondered if it was the owners. The closest I ever got was when I was running this summer and they pulled out of the driveway and I actually got to wave to them!

Checking my email this morning, I noticed some new comments on my old gargoyle posts and was thrilled to find out they were from the owners! Apparently one of their friends told them about my blog and they were rewarded with a year's worth of my crazy picture taking and blog posts of Lefty and Righty Gargoyle.

As it turns out, the Gargoyles do have names, "I, Righty am John and my buddy Lefty is Lance. They are the names of passed away fathers that are dearly missed, so we protect the family now!"

Now that the mystery is gone, I wonder what I'll think about now on my commute to work?

So happy that you finally solved the mystery. It's a wonderful tribute to their dads. I hope the owners keep up the good work!

Oh, we hope we haven't disappointed you by solving the mystery of our owners..... we will have to make sure we stay creative with our costumes.

By the way, a few months ago, our owners cleared a bit of brush around us so you can see us better. Phew! We aim to bring on the smiles!

We like being famous!
