Appreciate a Dragon Day

Today, in honor of Appreciate a Dragon Day, we went to a store, Vacuum and Dragons, Inc. Yes, that's right--vacuums and dragons sold in the same store. This emporium is at 5643 N. Academy, Colorado Springs, CO 80918. It is called "The Vac Shop within the Realm." Very Tight, my friends.

Out of the many dragons to choose from, I chose one that combined my admiration for dragons with my love of books. This figurine is On Watch #4001 from the World of Krustonia series.


Later we took four of our best behaved dragons out for dinner at Texas Roadhouse.
A good time was had by all!

I'm more obsessed even than Anonymous. Dogs are cute too but I like to imagine that dragons are real. By the way Mrs. Paul how did you create the dragons' names? I randomly type down keys for some of my characters and then edit them. Just like my last name on here.
