Out of Service 'Till Further Notice


Dragon is very sorry for the absence. We have been experiencing serious hardware problems with the laptop for a while and despite the efforts of the dwarves and a valiant knight, there has been little improvement. We believe we might just be delaying the inevitable fulminating crash of the system. It must be something contagious because the iPad has started to act up too last week. In any case, we can't blog from the iPad, so this is equal to the Dragon Cave entrance collapsing since we won't have any access to the blog or way to post. For how long? Only Higher Powers know.

Dragon and Dwarves wish to express our heartfelt thanks to all of our kind friends for your faithful visits so far. We'll try to drop by your blogs when/if hardware available allows. Hopefully our absence will not be for long but, just in case, we leave you lots of gummy bears, a piece of cake from our second blog-anniversary on November 24th and the dwarves' wish list for Christmas. 

Dwarves Wish List
1. Gummy Bears
2. Booze (High Quality, if possible)
3. The Arkenstone
4. Dragon Scale Polisher "Clean Master Dragon"

Be well, take care and until next time.  

Dragon Hugs.

  1. Ah, I've had those problems too in the past Sir. Not fun. Gummy bears and Booze I can profer; Thorin probably hid the Arkenstone in a devious place even a Wizard is likely to forget, and this old Hobbit doesn't polish - - anything - - nowadays.

    Be well and take care all until next time :)

  2. I am so sorry to hear this. And will wait with baited breath (or something like that) for your return. I like the dwarves wish list, but what would the dragon like?

  4. Santa needs to bring you a computer!
    Sorry I can't help long distance. Keep up with the emails and such, my friend.

  5. Oh no. I hope you can get it fixed sooner rather than later. Blasted technology. I love it when it's running smoothly (and don't even realize how thankful I am for it) and hate it when it's acting up. Good luck!!

  6. Dear dragon, we will miss you, but still be here when your technical problems get sorted out. I think I am beginning to have problems with my laptop too, luckily I have a desktop as well which seems to be OK at the moment. Muchos abrazos, su abuela.

  12. Dear Father Dragon,
    I am so sorry to hear about your hardware issues, and hope they are resolved shortly wihtout recourse to gummi bears, except in the flavors you prefer. I will have to come by again, hopefully soon, to celebrate your return.

  29. He Al, I'm stopping over from Christine Raine's blog. Sending some high quality mead to your dwarves. Oh, and some crackers, lunch meat, and various cheeses too. Can't drink mead on an empty stomach.

  32. Just checking in and missing the Dragon. I know how frustrating computer problems are. I go directly to panic and tantrums when I meet them. Hope you are conquering yours. xo
