Wow!!!!! I haven't heard that term in years!!!!

Book😁😁😁😁😂😂😂😂
The wonderful world of bearded dragons is a magical land of mystery, enchantment, cuddles, love and, worry! A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon, guess again. You are now a slave!!!

Yes, I know what a book is but, in the 70's "Book" was a slang term for LEAVE QUICKLY!!!! Yes, I am telling my age just a bit.

What's a kindle? :? Another case of life imitating STAR TREK.
(Yes, I still have an original, "All I Need to Know About Life I Learned from STAR TREK" poster, parodying the BOOK, All I Really Need to Know I Learned from Watching Star Trek.)

And yes (talk about dating oneself Gormagon), I can clearly remember watching the very first broadcast of ST:TOS at 9 pm on Thursday, September 8, 1966 on NBC (of course back then it was just STAR TREK, and I know Canada got to see it 2 days earlier).* My mom had a thing for Mr. Spock. :roll:

* And I don't even consider myself a Trekkie. Those people are Nuckin' Futz (and need to "GET A LIFE, will you people? I mean, for crying out loud, it's just a TV show!") :laughhard:

Any book I read to ZaRDoZ would have to ascribe to the "Sometimes the Dragon Wins" philosophy.
No... scratch that (this forum software really needs the strikethrough tab).

Actually, it's a bit of comfort/reassurance that not everyone here is a friggin' KID.

Dictionary

_____(friggin') kid
________________/kid/

noun

___1. anyone younger than me.

But this generation of bearded dragons. Bah humbug these young whippersnappers need to go outside more and read more books. Otherwise next generation will be even worse. Back in my day they did not have these fancy high tech habitats, they had old school aquariums (I am not actually really old, just some more funny writing for you all.)
