Dragon Laffs #2012


So, I had an interesting Sunday, after I got done with Monday’s issue.  I mowed the lawn, but in the midst of getting the mower ready for the new season, I found this in the garage:

I know, it looks like a kitty but it’s NOT.  Here’s a closer picture.

Here’s a generic google picture to narrow it down even further:

It’s a white weasel, also known as an ermine.  Everyone thought it was a white ferret, but the paws are completely different.  I think it must have been someone’s pet, because it came right up to me, climbed up on my shoe.  I actually thought it was going to climb up my pant leg.  But, before I could get my camera out, that was the best picture I could get.  But, it did make for an interesting afternoon.  And I haven’t seen him since.

If there only were really signs like this out there…

Poor Bob.  Why does everybody always pick on Bob?

Today I am going to give it my some.

I tried to take a picture of my face, but the bathroom mirror was fogged up.

Okay I admit it, I’m having selfie steam issues.

When a Dragon is in love…

If you’re pretty, you’re pretty.
But the only way to be beautiful is to be loving.

Otherwise, it’s just “Congratulations about your face.”

You look in the mirror and sometimes see a mess of a human being.  But you don’t see the lives you’ve touched, or the people you’ve saved.  You don’t see all the love you’ve given freely, or the extraordinary memories you’ve made.  You are a book of beautiful moments and feelings.

Had a date tonight with a girl who screamed at the waitress about “bad service” (she was busy) I don’t care how hot she was, there will be no second date.

Amen brother!  You can tell so much about a person by how they treat the WW’s (for those of you not in the business that is the Waiters and Waitresses) and what a person does with a grocery cart when they are done using it.  Instant report card.  Also, a tip should be AT LEAST 15% for regular old service.  More for better service.  If you can’t afford to leave a tip then you can’t afford to eat out.  Get the food to go or eat at home.  Most servers make about 3 or 4 dollars an hour by their employers.  Just enough money to pay the taxes on the money that they are going to be charged in tips that you are going to pay them – WHETHER YOU ACTUALLY PAY THEM OR NOT.  They either have to report their tips or go on a percentage of the sales that they served that night.  WHICHEVER IS MORE.  At least that’s the way it used to be when I was running restaurants.  So, if you don’t tip them, not only are you not paying them for work they are doing for you, you are costing them money in taxes that they are going to have to pay on money that you SHOULD have paid.  If your food was wrong, it probably wasn’t your servers fault.  Sure, a good server could probably have fixed it before it got to you, but most of them are going to trust the cooks to get it right.  Okay, I’m getting off my server soap box…just one more thing…Impish and Izzy Dragon went out to dinner at Bob Evans the other night.  We go there quite a bit (once or twice a month) because we both like the country fried steak.  They now recognize us when we come in because they know we don’t ask for a lot and I’m a decent tipper.  The bill was 22 dollars and change and I left a 10 dollar tip.  Because that’s the way the dragons roll.  And whenever possible I tip in cash so that they can report what they want, not what the boss sees on the receipts. 

Okay, NOW I’m off the server soapbox.  

A really great historic photo!

When people say, “I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy”.  I’m thinking, you guys don’t hate your enemies enough!

So…you may have noticed that I missed out on Thursday’s issue.  I apologize for that, but I ended up getting sick this week and have spent the last couple of days in bed.  I think it’s been a combination of emotional and physical illness and the combination of the two just kicked my ass.  I do feel a bit better today and hope to feel even better over the weekend.  We shall see.  It’s also been busy in other ways, but that’s not something I can talk about here.  Let’s just say that there are a lot of other things going on in Impish Dragon’s life right now.  So, until next time, Love and Happiness to you all.

    I know a lot of people who got covid after the shot, and some without the shot, who said it was a breeze, not sick at all.
    But there is a cold going around Salt Lake that is making everyone terribly sick.
    Hope that isn’t what you got. . . . but just to be safe, I am spraying my computer screen with Lysol!

    What do I always say . . . .? “There is good in all things.”
    Yesterday, my husband re-lit the water heater, but it was leaking so bad, it just put it out.
    The good? Hey, I am not in hot water!
