Notes: the image is a coloring page I found online and wanted to use for Marananthaheth. She is the dragon of my imagination. And I’ll be honest here, that last line took my breath away. I was hesitant to type it in. Years ago, I started writing something titled Chronicles of the Dragon Woman. And Heth played a major role in the story. Lost it when my old computer got wiped out by a lightning strike. And stopped thinking about it at least a decade ago. But, I gotta say, it makes 74 a lot less intimidating than I had been thinking. Heth has always been a gift and has given me the best one of all.

    That picture is splendid and what a lovely birthday greeting from Heth! I hope you’ll discover more surprises today, Elizabeth. Sending you love! Happy Birthday, my friend! ❤️

    I have Marianne. My helper is on her way here with BLT sandwiches, my very favorite thing! You can bet this old lady is grinning from ear to ear…

    Love and hugs, Elizabeth

    Happy Birthday, Dragon Woman. You have indeed earned that title of respect from Heth. Enjoy your birthday treats!!!

    I am certainly doing that, Sherry. My helper brought a cake as well, another favorite, Louisiana Lemon Crunch Cake. But, I had forgotten to get one of the ingredients for the cooking she was going to do. So, we ate, chatted, and she told me a raunchy joke, and left while we were both laughing.



  3. I knew you were the dragon lady, not sure how I knew that. I just did. I hope you have a wonderful birthday, my friend, Elizabeth.


    There’s a bit of a story behind that moniker. Long time ago, when I was still at the bookstore, I had a group of young people (19 to about 23 years old) who would come to my house to just chat about different things, but mostly about writing. At some point, I told them about the dragons, and they asked me to show them how to meet their dragon/s. I did that and afterward they came to me singly with questions. As we talked, I would ask them if their dragon knew who I was. And they all said the same thing, “Yes, the dragon says you are the Dragon Woman.”

    It was a bit of a shock to hear those words coming from Heth. She’s always called me “Little One.”
