There Be Dragons

Swanker's entry 120 at ADMIRE symbolically joins leather men and manhole covers - a classic pun noted here in Rosebud, as well as the synch that the stargate in Disney's 'Enchanted' is a Manhole in Times Square.

I was walking Oliver the terrier a few days ago when I spied this interesting work of art - a child's chalk (limestone) drawing of a great scaly dragon - devouring a manhole!

Took a shot of some children chalk drawing 3 days ago, they were Devils with sticky-out tongues.
Have included your last post in a minor synch-fest post that I've just done

Cheers

Oh no, not again, Mike! My very, very S.O., whose middle name is Olivier, as I'd told you earlier (and tis pronounced ol-iv-VEER, that one-of-a-kind guy, mine!) not like your Oztralian terrier Oliver's, has three nieces, one of whom, Jada, turned four today. So, he asked me to make her a birthday card. Yeah, sure, that I can do! Grabbing a piece of Bristol board & my set of 16 colors Sharpies, I went to town. The illustration? Why, a radiant sun, an open sun umbrella, a butterfly in flight, and ~gasp!~ a girl dragon with a piece of birthday cake!

"It's your birthday today!", it exhorts, "Make a wish & blow out the candles & it will come true!" Love, Uncle Johnathen & Uncle Anadæ

Wasn't the 17th century Witch-finder General, Matthew Hopkins, the one who said, "Sodomy is a crime that leads to witchcraft!", or'm I getting my circuitry criss-crossed?

Mr. Moon - Yea, synchs have their own timing.

Anadae - thanks, that's great. I always wished to to grow big muscles on my birthday...

Speaking of funny synchs, you mentioned Herman Munster previously - married to Lily Munster.

Yeesh! Come to think of it, Mike, their pet, Spot, happens to be a fire-breatheing dragon (!) whose secret lair is accessed from under the stairs, which themselves can be raised & lowered much like a drawbridge, allowing for his ferocious roars & billowing flames to issue forth, whenever the need arises.

Michael said...

Yea, it always seemed so normal for Spot to be hiding under the stairs, like a dragon-troll under the bridge.

I used to know a guy who was the spitting image of little Eddie Munster the werewolf. He always won the Halloween contests.
