Griffins not only mated for life, but also, if either partner died, then the other would continue throughout the rest of its life alone, never to search for a new mate.
By the 12th century the appearance of the griffin was substantially fixed: "All its bodily members are like a lion's, but its wings and mask are like an eagle's."It is not yet clear if its forelimbs are those of an eagle or of a lion.
Yesterday we had a new sliding glass door put in, and voila! not only is it watertight, we now have no need for the tarp that kept the rain off the door. So, lots of yardwork, old leaves in the trash and moving around of flowers and garden art. Now there is a nice view from the dining room again!
