Stumpy’s Coming

It’s July, which means that it is time for Stumpy’s annual visit to the house. Stumpy is a dragon, a bearded dragon, with malformed toes, hence the name “Stumpy.” He’s an agreeable pet and crazy for crickets. I feel bad for the crickets, but a dragon’s gotta eat. I’m told that Stumpy will eat lettuce and other vegetables as well, so I made a trip to the Saturday farmer’s market to see what looked dragon-worthy. I got some organic Romaine and some kale. It’s too hot for cilantro, but they had basil. Do Dragons eat basil? I don’t think dragons eat berries, but I got some anyway, and a small bit of broccoli. I hope he will enjoy his visit with us.
