I feel like I am looking into a mirror smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! I bet you're much better looking, Michael! smile
Perfect caption for this very startled face! Excellent find and capture!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I knew the image would eventually be good for something. HA!

They are friendly dogs, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Then he needs to calm down a bit, Ray, right?! smile

Yes indeed.... time flies and this is a fabulous picture to show it. I love these detailed sculptures.
Ginnie Hart: As you said yesterday, it's almost Christmas again! smile
Don't you just hate it when that happens?
Ginnie Hart: HA! YES! I know, Michael!!!

Tis is very nice. I wonder what the story or myth behind it is Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: I wonder, too, Chris. It amazes me how these things can be tucked away in corners like this, so easily missed!

He looks started, as if the fish are going to nibble him
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Lisl. Will the fish nibble us in February, I wonder?!
Et oui nous y sommes ..fevrier est bien là  !!
Très belle sculpture ..
Ginnie Hart: And so very quickly it has come, Claudine! By the way, every time I try to reach your site, I get a "This site can't be reached" message." Are you using the correct URL?

Yes, Maria Laach is a magnificent Abbey - and you have discovered a wonderful detail again! No dogs, dragons!
Ginnie Hart: I'll never forget it, Philine. And yes...dragons, not dogs. smile

He does not too happy; perhaps he's wondering where the heck January went.
Ginnie Hart: That's my take on it, Alan, for sure.
My mother would have been 105 today. Lovely photographic detail Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: 105! OMG, Chad. Just the other day was my dad's birthday and he would have been 100. I think we're aging ourselves. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your mom. May she RIP.
the dude on the column looks as freaked out as we are, at it being feb. smile or maybe it has something to do with the dragon wrestling smile either way, nice shot!!
Ginnie Hart: "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush" takes on new meaning, Elaine, doesn't it! grin
They sure did! Less than 327 days now until Christmas grin
Ginnie Hart: I know, Bill. Unbelievable!
Coucou , je viens de verifier mes liens , j'ai reecrit , a voir maintenant si c'est mieux ..Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Claudine!!! It now works.

Superbe
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
He is undersea, I think with dolphins kissing him and many arms hugging him.
Ginnie Hart: You have a very good imagination, Mary. smile
One month gone already Ginnie, time goes far to quickly for we Septuagenarians!! I've still got plenty of time to admire this most unusual gargoyle.
Ginnie Hart: We're definitely not getting any younger with each passing month, Brian, but look at how much we're living! I love it for us.
Very good photo Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.
I know, right? So fast!
It's been so hectic last month.
Easter eggs were already on sale here last week!
Ginnie Hart: And the thing is, LC, it's just getting faster, year after year!

A very nice sculpture.

But where on earth did January go?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Cherry...and I KNOW!!!
Good catch to share.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Jacquelyn.

Happy new year, Ginnie. I have been just catching up after a very busy holiday season. It's nice to catch up on your posts .... and ahhhj another reminder why I need to go back to Europe, so much history and interesting structures ... like this guy! smile
Ginnie Hart: So glad to see you again, Emily. IT'S FEBRUARY...but Happy New Year anyway! smile

Looks so surprised : )
Nice capture of all the textures.
Ginnie Hart: It's fun to find such pieces, Bonnie, and wonder what they "mean." smile

The look on his face reminds me of our looks after every day with Trump!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Robin. I wake up every day and wonder what NEW news will be on my iPad pop-up!!!
