Good Morning Campers,
It’s Thanksgiving morning.
And Willow Dragon and I are the only ones awake.
Well, one of us is awake.
We put the turkey (breast) in the oven, got a couple of other things set up to go, the lair smells delicious, and I thought now would be a good time to start Saturday’s issue. That and to tell you all how thankful I am for each and every one of you. My heart fills with joy when I think of each of you and the wonderful feedback I get from you when I push one of these silly little Dragon Laffs episodes out to cyberspace.
Why not start out today’s issue with a couple of comments from recent episodes:
“”My death will probably be caused by being sarcastic at the wrong time.””
Well, actually, I’m kinda surprised you’ve made it this long…
Me, too, Pete. Me, too. I’m kinda surprised every morning when my eyes open and I sit up in bed and Mrs. Dragon hasn’t smothered me in my sleep. And Pete continues with another quote:
“”There are a few minutes in the afternoon where I’m decent…””
Me too but, that just means my pants are on…
Friggin’ Pete, that explains SO much.
Okay, let’s move on to some jokes, cartoons, memes, and other funny stuff and we’ll get back to more mail shortly.
I have so many questions…
If your parents never had children, chances are…neither will you. ~ Dick Cavett
I actually sent this one to Mrs. Dragon and her best friend, labeled it with their names and everything. They laughed and laughed. But, they’ve been whispering and pointing behind my back. Like I said, it’s a wonder, every morning, when I wake up without being smothered in my sleep.
Them: Are you afraid of losing friends over your posts about controversial topics?
Me: No. I’m afraid of remaining silent and seeing friends and their loved ones suffer due to a lack of knowledge.
Okay, let’s go back to some more mail, shall we? This one is from our dear friend, fellow camper, and regular contributor Leah:
The deal is . . . because you have access to far more information about what is really going on than any of us, I need you to post how you feel about people, incidences, the chance in hell we will ever see “normal” again.
I thought that’s what I had been doing, Leah. As much as I am able, anyway. The chance in hell we will ever see normal again? You’re asking that of an abnormal guy like me? Oh geez!
Okay, seriously now. Pushing the soapbox back under the counter, pulling out the barstool, diming the house lights and becoming serious for a few minutes.
Leah and anyone else out there who is interested in MY opinion. Informed or otherwise as it may be. I believe that “normal” as we knew it even 2 years ago, is a thing of the past. Between the man-made virus that was released on purpose, the election that was horribly illegitimate on so many, many different levels and so many different locations, the current administration that has demonstrated such a total disregard for us Americans and a total regard for illegals. A subtle defunding of not only the police, but the military. We are on a hiring freeze, have no money to fly planes, are wondering how we are going to complete missions past July of next year (several months before the end of the fiscal year) and yet our government can give away trillions of dollars to other countries and stupid shit across our country. At a time when China and Russia are chomping at the bit to attack the United States, insuring a strong and vital military should be the number one priority and we don’t have enough money to even staff our vacant commander positions. We have mobs of 80 people walking in and robbing stores in California because the laws are so lax and others in Oregon able to do any drug they want out in the open for the same reason. Some moron is let out of jail and runs his car through a parade killing people in Wisconsin because of lax bail laws and every single one of these things can be directly attributed to democratic leadership. You’ve got nurses and medical personnel that are being fired for not getting a vaccine that doesn’t work who stayed at work in a basic war zone for over a year working bloody ridiculous hours, risking their lives and the lives of their family and loved ones and now they are being told comply or be fired. This is now normal. This is now normal because there are not enough people who are willing to stand up and say “this is bullshit” and we’re not going to take it anymore. Or they are like me and do what they can by sniping from the sidelines. But, this is the country that I have promised to lay my life down for. This is the country that can still call me up and tell me to deploy because my oath of service will NEVER expire.
So, I know that doesn’t answer your questions, Leah. And I know that is not satisfying in any way. It’s not satisfying to me on a daily basis. But, all we can do…all of us, is to keep questioning, keep pointing out the bullshit, keep holding their feet to the fire. And when we do get the chance, put someone else in office and watch the next election a hell of a lot more closely than we did the last one.
How about the rest of you? When do YOU think we will see NORMAL again?
Well, it’s much later now. Aaaaannndddd I’m alone again. But, this time, Mrs. Dragon is laying down because she’s having another bad day. (Gee, why does Impish have so much stress in his life?) So, yeah, laying down. And Izzy Dragon is now at work. And Willow Dragon and Pepper Dragon are both sleeping off their turkey overstuffed feeling. So, it’s back to being just you and me, kid. I’d break out the Jameson myself, but I have to pick up Izzy Dragon later and with Mrs. Dragon being under the weather as much as she’s been, my alcohol intake has been strongly curtailed. So … laughter!

I don’t see the difficulty.
Opinions are like orgasms…
Mine is more important and I really don’t care if you have one.
Some days I feel like I am surrounded by fucking idiots.
Other days I realize…
it’s not just some days.
Okay, “Highway To Hell” on 3…
I always wait for the cinnamon spice, myself.
Check on your friends who work in professions which require them to refrain from saying 90% of what they think. We are not okay.
People need to stop putting flyers on my car. I don’t want to see a band called “Parking Violation” at the “Courthouse.”
One spelling mistake can destroy your life. Think of this poor husband who sent this text message to his wife: I’m having a wonderful time, wish you were her.
I envy people that grow old gracefully. They age like a fine wine.
I’m aging like milk. Getting sour and chunky.
This one is from Friggin’ Pete and it’s called “Tom”
At the Sunday morning church service, the minister asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express praise for answered prayers.
A lady stood and walked to the podium. She said, “I have a Praise. Two months ago, my husband, Tom, had a terrible bicycle crash and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was terrible and the doctors didn’t know if they could help him.”
You could hear a muffled gasp from all the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Tom must have experienced.
“Tom was unable to hold me or the children,” she went on, “and every movement caused him terrible pain. We prayed as the doctors performed a very delicate operation, which lasted for over five hours, and it turned out they were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Tom’s scrotum,and wrap wire around it to hold it in place.”
Again, the men in the congregation were unnerved and squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery that was performed on Tom.
“Now,” she announced in a quavering voice, “thank the Lord, after six weeks, Tom is now out of the hospital and the doctors say that with time, his scrotum should recover completely.”
All the men sighed with relief.
The minister rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say. A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium.
He said, “I’m Tom.”
The entire congregation held its breath.
“I just want to tell my wife that the word is sternum.”
You guys have sent me SO MANY of these, that I could probably run two complete issues of political memes only and still not use them all up! I had to expand the space I use to store them to accommodate them all. But, I LOVE them! Some of them are REALLY, REALLY good. So, without further ado…
Such fucking bullshit! Begging other countries for something we can do ourselves!
Seems funny they can’t figure out how to unload hundreds of cargo ships ready and waiting in the harbor but, they know how to change global warming?
I’m wondering why, with all the pressure and force being used, there are no TV commercials advertising the vaccine.
I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that, by law, a drug commercial has to list the side-effects…
You either understand history or you trust the government.
You can’t do both.
When all the guns have been banned,
When all the words have been censored,
When all the history has been erased,
When all the freedom has been taken,
Only then will you discover why our right to bear arms was so high on the list to begin with.
“People who will get very upset if someone said all blacks look alike are really comfortable saying all blacks ought to think alike.” ~ Justice Clarence Thomas
“Men fight for Liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grandchildren are once more slaves.” ~ D. H. Lawrence
Nor will I seek your approval.
Yes! And it was one of the most wonderful, memorable times of my life! We still do it now … to some extent. And it’s still just as exciting.
And that’s it for today’s adventure in Dragon Laffs! May your days be filled with Love and Happiness, Laughter and Sharing until we meet again.
NORMAL? when every individual takes it upon themself to act like it. i’m thinking most people are waiting for some perceived “super hero” to do it for them. everything from the completely useless mask wearing to the forced vaxx to the distancing to the amount “allowed” to assemble. don’t let the criminal and corrupt, mandate anything that violates your constitutional rights.the rights granted to us now were earned by regular people from the past . some gave their lives to do it. civil disobedience is an accepted and effective way to achieve goals.
In answer to your “normal” comments . . . When I first learned of the holocaust, I was young and stupid and couldn’t understand why the Jews and others let it happen, why didn’t they leave or fight back? I have known what was happening to us and our country, and now I understand.
Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving, all things considered. Best wishes to all there in the Dragon Lair.
Did you get the feeling that I set you up with those two memes? LMAO!
I agree with you in “normal” as we knew it even 2 years ago, is a thing of the past”. And the simple, yet most complicated, reason is what I have been saying since my youth and it has been shown and proven over and over and over throughout my life. “Once The Government gets a foot inside the door, that door never shuts again.” The Liberal Communists have been kicking at the doors of freedom, here and there, for years now and have managed to kick in a few and get their foot in the door but, the last couple of years, it has been a total, organized attack by all of them, all at once. It is a full assault on America, it is a full assault on freedom and liberty, it is a full assault on our economy, our heath, our education system, our free press, our feelings for our fellow citizens. We will probably never be able to get the doors they have managed to kick in these last couple of years to ever shut again but, in time, we may be able to force them back to the other side of an opened door. We always have hope because (another favorite quote of mine) as long as there is breath, there is HOPE!
