A Council of Dragons

I’ve got a few things to post on my blog today, so I’ll start with something I promised in a reply yesterday. Ever since I started my little comic strips with Frank, I’ve realized there was a lot of potential there. I wanted to expand the cast of the comic strips a little bit. First it was just me and Frank. Then I added a bunch of family for the Christmas visit from H-E-double-hockey sticks and my kids got in on the act, too. The most recent addition has been Hip the dragon. Well, Hip’s about to steal the limelight a bit. The picture below is a gathering of my wife’s dragons (not all, but a handful of them). Within the next week, I plan to do a comic strip entry, and it will be the first without Frank. A sign that the comic strip portion of my blog is really taking on a life of it’s own.

I took a bunch of pictures of the dragons earlier this week, so hopefully I can get a lot of mileage out of these guys as Hip is inducted into the “Dragon Queen’s Council of Dragons.” For now, that’s what I think they’ll be called anyway. We’ll have to wait and see.

Speaking of Hip, I need to give a shout out to CarnivAOL. “Frank Meets Hip,” episodes I & II are both being featured in the latest edition of the blog that highlights blogs. Paul’s given the Lair a few mentions since I first started this thing, so I definitely owe him quite a bit of thanks.

Knowing Frank, he'll just demand more pay for less work... just like any other celebrity.
