Well-Travelled Gargoyle Comes Home to Vermont

'I was sitting outside having coffee with my tenant ... when he looks up and says, 'Hey, the gargoyle's back,' Beyor said. Beyor replied, 'Maybe there's a note,' and to her surprise, there was.

'Had a great trip. It's good to be home! Gargy,' said the note that also came with a $20 bill and photos of his trip." [
