Plato the Play-Doh Dragon

Once upon a time, on a balmy Florida Christmas evening, after all of the guests had gone home except for my brother Paul and Patty, I got out the Play-Doh.  We turned into children, molding the colorful modeling clay.  A tiny dragon was born.  Plato is one inch tall.  She's about 15 human years old, which is 150 in Play-Doh Dragon years.
From Garden
Obviously stunned by being outside for the first time in her life, Plato contemplates the hand that made her. Before I put her back in the curio cabinet, she muttered, "the measure of a man is what he does with Play-doh".
