Today is St George's day, the patron saint of England.
Dilly, being a croco-dragon, is kwite taken with the story of St George. I was surprised to hear this, given the tradishonal fate of the green character in the story, till I discovered that in the vershon SHE read, St George hadn't FOUGHT the dragon, he TAUGHT it. St George is therefore patron saint of teaching dragons how to make fires, boil kettles, and make tea.
This will account fer how he came to be patron saint of England, too, as every English vein runs with 60% tea. (5% Marmite-on-toast, 2% steamed pudding & custard, 10% biscuits, 3% roast Sunday dinners, 5% fish & chips, 15% misc.)
Dilly's full nayme is Dilly St George, in onnor of the Dragon hoo was "taught" in the story (sigh....) an so to help her sellybrayte her speshol day we gave her a card and an English flag (red cross on white backgrownd):
She desided to make the flag into a cape an go gliding rownd the howse making engine noyzes wiv the theme from "The Dambusters" blaring out...
