Somewhere I have a couple of pocket dragons still boxed, bought to be prizes for PernQuest that either never joined the prize pool or were never selected. I have a few other leftover prizes, and keep thinking someday I just need to see if some of our members want them for the price of postage...

I bought a couple of Pocket Dragons from Allen quite a few years ago, also some of his lovely handmade bracelets.

If you find that you do have pocket dragons; Cheryl, I would happily send you postage for one and perhaps "trade" a cross stitched Christmas ornament?

Allen, I would probably be interested. I have room for a couple more. I'm not sure if I still have your address. Can you PM address, which Pocket Dragons you'd like to sell and prices? Thanks!

I have so many it would be a long, drawn out task to list them, suffice to say that I'm at a point where I'd sell almost any of them. When you bought yours I think I had bought a big lot on ebay and was selling off duplicates. I still have some (a few anyway) of those left, plus quite a few of my original collection.

So the easiest thing I could do would be to photograph my displays, post those photos, and see if I can find the old list I made of those other pieces. Almost all have their boxes, and those and the duplicates are really tucked away in the loft of my shed. If you have anything you've seen on ebay, let me know and I can check to see If I have it, want to sell it, and so on. I'll PM you my address when you want, and anyone else can get a look at things, too. I'm in no hurry, and I don't think anyone else is either. So let me know what you think of my idea.

Your idea sounds fine to me. If I could see pictures I could choose ones I don't already have. As you say, no rush about this, take your time! I'm thinking my kids could "give" me a couple for Christmas. They're always asking what I want.

Well as I said, learning how to run things with my ears, and not my eyes, I am going two steps foward and a step and ahalf of it back, at times, I might be able to get some hep with traning so I can move easier with my screen reader, beyound what I had early on, I had to drop out and answer a call,, so When I get more time I shall have to see if I can get that background on what I was talking about image discription, and audio discription,, Most of my problems. come from a few different places, I sometime wish I ewas a shellperson at times, more like Tia but a little like Carrlle sp from the Ship that Won the two that Jody Lyn Nyee wrote with Anne McCaffrey. But my feeling and feedback is all lover that group of books, for I am feeling like I am getting , gaps in my memorly like the book with N. Ball not burnt, just cold and stiff. :sship: I hope folks can understand me, here, been reading something enon AMc anand its kina effecting more then I thought it would.

The worst & embarrassing part of beach trip, when I was coming in I got knock on my rear end, & could not get back up. Every time I tried I'd end up getting rolled over. Kibby, after laughing at me, decided I was realky having problems came over to help. Still couldn't get up. Finally 2 guys decided I was in trouble & help me up.

Finally Rain!!!! glorious rain. We've been very hot and very dry so an all night and morning slow rain is such a relief. I'm really hoping that British Columbia gets this as well as almost the entire province is a tinderbox. Drought, pine beetles and not letting some small fires burn to clear underbrush has made a very dangerous mix and thousands are under evacuation orders. I know letting some fires go is very controversial but forests and prairie need to burn or instead of small containable fires you get massive ones. I know a burn looks bad but a few years in, they can be stunning to look at with all the new growth. Animals come back and instead of a place that's quiet it's full of life again. My

Weather here is nothing if not changeable. Not that long ago we were in the mid to high 30's (high 80's to low 90's.) One day we were 101F, yesterday and today we're at15c (59f). Keeps life interesting. At least with the cool I can get into my garden and prune the tomatoes back, they are more like a hedge than a garden. Chopping it back I also found 4 melons and not the 1 I thought I had.

Hurricane Henri is coming. We got the bread, milk, bottled water and batteries. We have a gas powered generator that Jeff puts on the driveway. It can handle a couple lights, a small radio and the coffee maker or microwave. We're about 10 miles inland, we'll be fine.

I hope that makes your shoulder feel a whole lot better, mawra!

Meanwhile the Sydney Delta Covid outbreak has "jumped the ditch" (crossed the Tasman Sea) and we're in Level 4 lockdown. That means only Supermarkets, Chemists, Dairies and Service Stations are open and everyone has to stay home in their bubble except essential workers. (Sydney's own lockdown is only what we would call 2.1) There's virtually no traffic on the usually very busy road outside my flat. Frankly, I don't miss endless trains of heavy trucks full of demolition materials. Just to make things more interesting, the main sump from my block of flats is blocked and overflowing - again! I hope plumbers are essential workers!

Vyon, you are in good hands with PM Jacinda Arden : your country's leader is well respected around the world. Premiere Anna is looking after Queensland so well, we are very lucky. Australia was in an enviable position a few weeks ago, but Delta Covid has snared NSW and the numbers are creeping up. We are hoping it doesn't cross the border but I fear it's only time. Once the vaccination rates increase, I dare say the states will relax restrictions and we will have to live with the knowledge that covid is in the country. And I'm sure your plumber will make your life more comfortable very soon! Stay safe in the lockdown. Short term pain for long term gain.

The Delta variant is causing trouble all over. Our cases are rising but for the most part the people in hospital are people who haven't had the vaccination. People who had the jab might get it but aren't getting very ill.

I'm taking advantage of cooler weather and got 18 pints of salsa canned today. Yesterday was 14 small jars of apple sauce. I may get out some of the raspberries I froze earlier and make some jam tomorrow.

And half our governors want to ban mask mandates 7n schools.

Yesterday's procedure was about as fun as I though it would be. The put shots in the Calcium deposits then a cortzone shot. They did numb it first. It will be worth it, if it means I can move it normally again.

Stay safe everyone.

My shoulder is much better, maybe the shot was worth it.

Covid cases are up in my area. Having the largest, private Christian university (Libery University) in the country near me is not helping. No vaccine, no testing and no mask requirements. Yeah, I feel safe.

I'm glad your shoulder is better.

Unfortunately there are many people duped into not trusting science related to vaccines and masks. They prefer to trust strangers on social media who may not have their best interests at heart. We have all had our vaccines and wear masks when around others (in stores). I have noticed an increase in people wearing masks since this Delta variant came about.

I hope you've been vaccinated and will stay safe!

I've been vaccinated but it's back to wearing a mask at stores for me. We spent almost all of June with almost no new cases and I was beginning to think we were going to be ok but the last week numbers have skyrocketed and today we had an all time record high number of new cases today here is southeastern IL.

"if it could scratch its head" moments LOL for ssometimes my spelling is only a few letters off, and its comming up with other words not what I am looking for.

Right now I am feeling a tad better, but still its going to take me time to understand how to run tthis program. Found out why one key wasn't working had to pop in back in place, so I hope now its working now.

Dang hit the wrong key strokes once more, my mind feels like a pod with a lot of seeds rolling around it a very dry one.

IDon't know what is going around, but that dry pod had seeds of knowledge that won't post well.

Thinking of a half-recalled from a different books with Dragons in it Dragon Jousters, Book Two, LOL

Haven't reade it a bit, but its also a reminder about a song, thqat I need to track down, I've got money just on tbhe link back or time, to show where I found it. I hope folks don';t mind that I am leaving mydself a note here, good song, and a ideas for a story, more a slice of life, that won't leave me a lone.

Mawra, I hope you had a great birthday!


We've had a windy and rainy week, but luckily they're forecasting a bit of sun for the weekend. Don't get me wrong, we definitely needed the rain after a long, hot summer, but it feels like we've had enough for a while now. June and July were cumulatively the hottest on record. So far, August's been the wettest on record, and records go back nearly 150 years here.

Liberty University has been on campus a little over week, had 3 days of classes & is now under quaitene. At least 159 cases. And they are still hold outside events. From the traffic coming out of LU this afternoon, I would say the quaitene is more a suggestion.
No other college or universities in the area are having a problem. They all have required vaccines, negative test results & masks.

I had a nice birthday. Got an ice cream cake. Hubby has ordered a gorgeous dragon egg, my oldest sister gave a cute metal dragon with a bow on its tail. Both sisters and I went to dinner this evening.

If anyone needs a good home for a pocket dragon, I would love him, and hug him and call him George.

Sounds like a revamp of the old Liberty or Death speech only with Liberty AND Death.

University of Birmingham, with over 30,000 students got through last year with around a hundred students quarantining and no hospitalisations.

Liberty complained about mandates last year & did the least they could get by with. Classes were on line, but professors had to do leason from class rooms, had to have in person office hours. Students were encouraged to return from spring break ect.... as a result they had outbreaks all year. This year, no mandates are required from the state, so they had none. Last I heard there were 79 cases in the hospital. Not all are Liberty students, but they are out and about, spreading it everywhere.
