A Letter in the Mail / Post

Anything at Anytime, You never know what your going to get.

Yesterday I received a letter from an old friend, Tomas DumBass (pronounced Dumb Bass) Snotbottom.

Good God, I haven't heard from him in, it has to be 20+ years now.  Tomas and I became fast friends when I lived in Europe many years ago.  I had gone to a local Pub (of all places The Green Dragon) for my regular Pint or Two before calling it a night.

Halfway into my first Pint I overheard this young man (Hell, he is my age - young man my ass) talking about Dragons.  Well, I couldn't help myself.  I downed the remainder of my Pint and order two more from the Barkeep.

I took the drinks to the table this guy was at and told him I had overheard him and had a personal fascination with Dragons and asked if I could join him to talk Dragons.

From that moment on we became inseparable when we had free time, always stalking Dragons or chasing down rumors of them.
Many Adventures we had.

Anyway, Did I tell you I got a letter from him yesterday?  Duh, of course I did, that is what started this.  

It is a Fantastic Letter and If He is on to Who or What he thinks then it could change many different aspects of Science as we all know it.  I will let you Read what I got:

                              My friend, I know I have neglected our friendship for many years 
                         by not writing and returning your letters.  I have gotten all of your letters 
                         over time and that is part of why I haven't contacted you.  
                              You got married, wish I could have been there.  I can only imagine 
                         the party afterward.  Then I got the letters telling of the birth of your 
                         Daughters, You Lucky Man!  
                         For Your Daughters more than anything is why I have not been corresponding. 
                         I know your passion is strong for what we LOVE and I NEVER wanted to 
                         tempt you away from your Family.  
                               Sorry to hear of your illness.  I Truly am!  That is the Reason I  am writing 
                         you and decided to get back in touch.  I will not stand idly by when a True 
                         Friend is in Need and cares a burden upon their shoulders.  
                               You know that after you left Europe, I continued to search, listen, hunt and 
                         read any and all I could about Our Passion, Dragons!  Believe me I read many 
                         books and old Tombs and learned of many New Dragons we had not heard of 
                         or known of. 
                               When I got your last letter of you being sick with the Emphysema, 
                         something rang a bell in my head.  I didn't write immediately, I got your letter 
                         last Fall, as I plunged myself back into the books and Tombs.  I just knew I 
                         had seen or read something!

                         And I Found IT!!

                                Dragons of old had a condition that they (the Dragons) called 
                          "Short Breath."  from my studies it seems to be very similar to Emphysema, just 
                           in Dragons.  
                                 Now there was No Cure; however, there was a Dragon that was said to 
                           have the powers to extend and improve the life noticeably in other Dragons 
                           inflicted with this malady.  I still think HE exist, just that HE has been in the 
                          "LONG SLEEP" for near 1300 years.  The last scrolls that mentioned him 
                           written in 732 A.D. and all things I have found on or mentioning HIM, place 
                           Him somewhere in the Eiffel Mountains (not far from where you lived as a child).  
                                 I have arranged for an expedition to begin a search and we start out tomorrow.  
                           I wanted to let you know your Friends here have not Forsaken You!  
                                 I will write more as time permits.  Now, I must pack and rest a bit before we  
                           leave tomorrow.  

                          Forever Your Dragon Friend and Compatriot,
                                                                         Tomas DumBass Snotbottom

If it is True - Well, I (No, We as I have now included you all) will have to wait and see what the expedition turns up.


  1. Dan I'm sure there is a dragon sleeping under Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh. Should I get my spade out and dig it up, just in case?

  2. saw the dragon on my dashboard and just had to follow her to see where she led.. sheeese im such a sucker for their pretty visage :-)
    hope the expedition goes well ;-)


I have made a change and removed the word verification and your comments will go right up; HOWEVER, if I think it will "OFFEND" my other readers it will be removed.
