    A Couple of Glennís Friends Came Out of the Closet

    A bit of background: Occasionally Myrna and I would change the artwork and decorator items in the house. Paintings and other artworks of that type are kept in appropriate boxes. The smaller decorator items are stored in a closet.

    I was going through the closet separating out items to go to the kids and friends so someone else would not have to do it when I kick off (hopefully, at least 50 years from now). When I took out a couple dragons that Glenn made when he was in high school, I thought I would share with the family. The larger dragon is 12Ē tall.

    Enjoy them,
    JimB

    The part dad left out was that the body lifts off of the feet so that an incense cone can go inside. The smoke from the incense comes out of the dragon's nose and return air gets sucked in the arm holes. Ah, the days of long hair and bell bottom blues. We all took a stab at drawing, painting, leather work, ceramics. jewelry making and so forth.

    I took to music for many years and majored in it in college. There must be something in that "nut falls not to far from the tree" bit. My youngest seems to have gotten the lion's share of the musical skills when it comes to my kids. My daughter sings, my older boy plays a bit of music but, primarily draws and is a computer science major. The youngest plays drums, bass, keyboards, guitar, trumpet and is majoring in some sort of 'digital signal processing' field which is what we used to call mixing music in the studio (but his version on steroids).

    What would life be like without the Bradleys humor. Thanks guys.

    Jim i see a certain star wars influence in those sculptures. I think they look really cool. Definitely did not think they were high school material. They surely must be handed down.
    Glenn u talented indvidual. Must be the California water.
