Happy Holidays From All Of Us Here At The Workbench!

Our Christmas dragon, with present

Somebody else's dragons - see the link in the text


The new laundry - I feel like I'm dealing with the Death Star...

The plumber has been in, and removed a huge ball of roots (courtesy of the big maple tree in the front yard) from our main sewer line. Now that the latest crisis is over, I finally got our Christmas Dragon out on the front walk so that we could salvage something of the holiday. Other then the plumbing, it's been a quiet holiday and we've been catching up with friends and family.

The inflatable dragon was / is marketed by Home Depot, where we got ours, as "Gary". (I think all of you clever readers can work that one out.) Other people have done this as well, and I suggest the link to the article that our second photo came from:


We have gotten no feedback on our dragon, and I suspect that people are already traumatized by the huge flock of plastic flamingos in the front yard. Yes, people do stop and stare, but then I take it as a good sign that they start laughing and walk away with a lighter step.

The new laundry gear is working well, and we've gotten the mess from today's adventures in sewers all cleaned up. The rest of the laundry will follow, as I'm in the middle day of my holiday vacation and getting the house in order. We continue... :)

And again, Happy Holidays from all of us here at The Workbench!!!!

  1. And I had to move half of what I own for the tech to install new internet. I was very happy to get everything back to normal again, but my back still aches. Ah, change. Maybe I can get a huge dragon for next year, we'll start a fad!

    1. I like the idea. We just like this; it's fun, like the pink flamingos.

    1. Thank you! We're trying to get away from 'gaming politics' and back into the kind of gaming we did and had fun with. I hope you'll enjoy what'll be on offer over the next year. :)
