If you’ve been visiting the tea room for long, you’ve surely seen me fuss about deadline dragons.
In truth, I love them.
Without such beasties, I’d be out of work. That’s a very good reason to look upon them kindly.
I always smile when I see one.
You’ll surely remember when I shared this sky dragon recently..
It was so nice of him to join me on a beach walk, wasn’t it?
Something even neater happened today.
A very special dragon showed up on my doorstep.
Yep, it’s true.
See for yourself..
And doesn’t he look grand in his new home, surrounded by some of my favorite rocks?
He came to me by magic, of course. Though if you keep it a secret, I’ll tell you that a very special friend helped him get here. One of you, actually. Someone who believes in magic as much as I do.
And wasn’t it kind of her to send such a handsome fellow my way?
I am calling him Slag.
If you’ve read Kendrew’s Temptation of a Highland Scoundrel, you’ll know that Slag was a very special dreagan in that book.
And now he has pride of place on my desk..
He is actually a Book Wyrm ‘Tender is the Knight’ dragon. (Click here to see him up close)
To me, he is Slag.
Especially as he arrived today, in the midst of a really wicked storm. In Temptation of a Highland Scoundrel, Slag was afraid of thunder.
So it’s a good name for him.
And I am thrilled to bits to have him. He’ll be my deadline mascot and see me through the scariest crunch times, always making me smile.
Here’s wishing you lots of smiles today, too.
And if a dragon lands on your doorstep, please be kind to him.
To my special friend who sent Slag to me – THANK YOU!! (I know you’ll see this)
