I recently heard from a reader who'd been reading in my old archives. He told me all about the 'Australian Bearded Dragon', and of course, I had to Google. Having found a decent photo of the lizard, I 'heard' him saying, as in those 'art instruction' ads, "Draw Me!"

Which I did, of course. You may wonder, if he is an Australian lizard, why is there an American Saguaro cactus in the distance? I simply claim, Artistic license! I felt like one needed to be there! No reason why the Aussie couldn't be a traveller in foreign parts.
