Just saying "Hi!" My Dragon has arrived...yeowza...and I'm in training. It will take a little while, but I'm getting there.
About the hand...I can't wave anymore, my hands flop over, so...the above has been printed out life size, my friend, Lolly, will affix it to a stick for me and, drum roll, a wave!
And for those of you who have urged me to dig back into my archives, I thought the following seemed appropriate, given the general attitude towards our government these sad and troubling days.
As elections draw near and it's all rhetoric
My thoughts often dwell on the world politic
I think of the folks up on capitol hill
And know what they're passing is seldom a Bill
Fast words and loud speeches, all promise and sass
Ring false for it seems that they're just passing gas
And when they foul up or run out of blind luck
How swift they've become at passing the buck
When caught in dark closets their affairs bear no shame
The issue is sidestepped by a quick pass of blame
When dressed in their finest they shmooze at a bash
While with deft slight of hand they're maneuvering cash
Come the day designated I'm right there to vote
But my faith in the outcome is becoming remote
