Times being what they are the wily Bartender replies: “sure, we serve anyone.”

This post I mean. Whoops.

8) Hey y'all, this here is Mortimer J. Drachencense, most my buddies call me Drake. Let me tell you what we've got down here at Drachencense's Used Dragons.

A new dragon is real nice, mighty fine. But who can afford one? Tell me, how much did you pay for that first dragon, the old one with the clipped wing, and the missing teeth? Not a whole lot, but you got alot of good miles out of that old brown dragon before some heroes got in and did him in. Why go out and pay good money for a high price new dragon, when a factory refurbished dragon might be just the thing you need.

 :dracoliche: Lemme guess, this is what you are expecting to come down here and find. Scales all falling off and rusted, not enough huff and puff left to light a cigarette let alone terrorize a town. You can even see this poor old beasts ribs. We dont sell barrel scrapin' dragons, we sell only the best reconditioned, refurbished dragons and dracomorphs. Unfortunately we dont deal with any Asian imports, we stick with the stock European models.

How about this big boy here - :bigdragon: - just the thing for the combat heavy fellow. He's got monsterous low end torque, and gets plenty of miles per princess eaten. Breath weapon still in great condition, original finish. He's a steal at 200,000 GP.

That's alright, looking for something a little smaller  - :bdragon: - This fellow here is a Czech import. Some of you are shaking your heads over those old Yugo cars, but let me tell you something, they know how to put together a Dragon. This bad boy is sleek and fast, and has great handling. He bank like a hawk, great for munchkins on pegasi.

For some of you on a tighter budget,  :babyd: I've got a few of these little guys. All the features of a name brand dragon, but in a half size body. Easier on the pocketbook, and eats only a minimal number of princesses. Unlike some dragons, this compact can run on un-virgin princess.
Don't ask how I stumbled upon this but it made me laugh.

I watched professional boche ball for a little. At least that is what I think it was. Rolling balls closer to other balls. Very intense...I think.

A dream:

I looked out the window, my wife pointed. There was a german sheperd wandering around in the driveway. That's odd, no one in the neighborhood owns a german sheperd, but look, it snowed. There is about three inches of snow in the driveway. The road is slick and wet, but no snow on it. I think something is missing, someone stole Becki (01 Kia Rio) and Oliver (10 Kia Soul). Shock and disbelief. Who would steal a ten year old Rio? Who would steal a new Rio? My wife in unphased. I think we should call the cops, I say. It can wait till morning, she says.

I go outside, crunching in the snow. Both cars really are gone, but wait, there is a green SUV in the road, pulling away, Oliver! I run to the driver's door, open it and pull the driver out. He is a latino, and his friends shout a lot, but I realize that they are drive a Saturn Vue, and not a Soul. Oops. I run inside and call the police. The phone starts ringing, and as that happens there is a rumble and the house starts shaking. Earthquake?

I wake up.

Others KNOW it is...

And those are the ones you have to watch out for.
