Good Thursday Morning, Campers,
And a wonderful morning to you all. It has been another week for the record books here at Dragon Central. I have one of those over the stove (range … why are they called ranges? What’s the difference between a range and a stove? IS there a difference between a range and a stove? Anyway, I digress …) I have an over the range microwave that is also a vent, light, etc … that came with the house, so I have no idea how old it is. Well, it went out over the Independence Day weekend. Izzy Dragon was making something in the microwave and it dinged and just went dark. I, of course, being the electrical expert that I am, checked the circuit breaker, and then checked the plug to make sure there was electricity to the outlet … that exhausted my vast knowledge. There might be a fuse inside of it somewhere that could be replaced, but I’ll be damned if I know where it might be. And since I can’t even find a brand name on the damn thing, I can’t even look it up on line to find out. So … spend $40 for a service call (that’s just to get the guy to walk in the door) to find out if it can be fixed or spend $250 to $350 to replace it and know that it is fixed, since I have no idea how old it is, since we’ve lived here 6 years and it’s at least that old.
But, I should have expected it.
Why? You might ask? Well, next week is Mrs. Dragon and mine 26th wedding anniversary and if you remember correctly, last year at about this same time was the great refrigerator and stove debacle of 2020. Surely, you all remember THAT one. (I know, don’t call you Shirley.)
Sigh. So yeah, it’s that time of year for one of our appliances to go out. LOL!
Anyway, I just got a phone call on my government cell phone, I said hello and the guy on the other end of the line said, “Yes, sir. You recently inquired and asked about help with your student loans, are you still needing help?” I said, “No, I didn’t.”
He said, “Yes sir, you did.”
I laughed and replied, “You are really going to argue with me about whether I asked for help with my student loans?”
“Yes sir, I am, because I wouldn’t have your number if you hadn’t asked for help and I’m here to help you. You just don’t know that you need help.”
I had to laugh even harder and I told him, “Well, I will give you points for persistence, but I don’t have any student loans, never have had any, you’ve reached a federal agent and if you stay on the phone for about five more seconds I’ll finish the trace on your phone and send one of my agents round to talk with you, so just hang on for me.”
“Oh shit….” click
God, I love scam callers.
Now, how about we laugh about something … cause I need it
I need that sign for outside my cavern
There’s a new guy starting at work called Wayne Bruce and I said, “Ah, my old nemesis Manbat” and nobody got it. Honestly, I am wasted here.

I went to an archaeology party recently where they were only looking for remains of a lower leg …
… it was quite the shindig.

But so does Tequila.
I have questions …
I’m trying to give up sexual innuendos, but it’s hard … so hard.
Way too many people think this is truth!
I don’t need alcohol to make bad decisions.
My winter fat is gone. Now I have spring rolls.
Much more I wanted to add, but had a bit of drama around here … storms… spent a little time in the basement because of tornado warnings and a loss of power. Had a difficult time convincing my two girls (Mrs. Dragon and Izzy Dragon) that the two old dogs would be better off locked in the bathroom upstairs than dragged down the basement stairs and possibly getting hurt on the very steep, very narrow stairs … anyway, all is well. Just excitement and drama and another event where I didn’t get a picture of a tornado. Dammit! Still unfulfilled bucket list item.
But, I am now worn out and must get some much needed sleep. So, until next time. Good night, and fair thee well.
