Perhaps that dinosaur was my Uncle Camp?! He turned 99 this past year. Did this particualar dino have a lamp shade on his head and was he pulling quarters out of people's ears? Yep, that was Unk Campy alright.

Great take! Happy 2012!

Good idea, cucumber slices. I should try that.
Love the dragon/dinosaur confabulation. My husband went out to find dinosaur toys for one of the grandsons, but couldn't find any, so he told his daughter. She laughed and told him, "I said he likes dragons, I didn't say dinosaurs."
Happens to everyone, I guess.
Here's wishing you all the best for the coming year!

I laughed out loud at this one. I love the last line, "She replaced the cucumber slices on her eyes."

Cultures throughout the world have drawings and stories about dragons, from Saint George and the dragon to Chinese tales of dragons to pictographs of dragon-like creatures in the American southwest. Who knows, maybe they were dinosaurs and the paleontologists are wrong!?!

A little too much bubbly. LOL Love the tone of this and how the thought of a dinosaur OR a dragon at a party doesn't faze her. Funny!

That must have been quite a party! As for dragons and dinos, I mix those up even when I haven't been drinking the bubbly.
