    It’s going on 7 years since I started my search for the “November” Female Griffin to go along with my “Autumn” Male.
    She’s definitely my ultimate grail πŸ˜‚

    Not a true grail, since I hadn’t seen all the Leopard Appaloosa mother pegs that were painted by Melody and couldn’t choose my favorite, but definitely a “someday piece”. I finally found a Leopard Appaloosa mother Pegasus to match my Leopard Appaloosa male and baby pegs. My apologies (sort of) to whomever I outbid for this girl.

    For a while I also had the Leopard Appaloosa hatching peg, but I let him go in favor of keeping Freckle with the green egg instead. This is the Leopard Appaloosa hatching peg, in case anyone is curious about him:

    I sort of stumbled into a grail this summer, although I’m still figuring out what “grail” means for me. See, I didn’t know Windstone was doing eBay auctions until just a couple years ago, and if I *had* known back around the time Cosmic Shift came out? I probably would have gone into debt trying for some of the Cosmic Shift dragons. I work for an aerospace company, I’m a bit of a NASA geek, and space dragons? Are *right* up my alley in everything I love. I’ve calmed down a lot since then and re-examined priorities and what my collections mean to me (and (mostly) come to terms with small apartment life), but realizing that there was a whole line of space dragons that I hadn’t even realized existed? *Wistful sigh* And of course they were popular, at least one person has an ongoing Classified post for the color – I figured I’d missed that train, and, well, *shrug*, there would be others, and there are LOTS of “regular” Windstones on my list on the meantime.

    So we come to this year. I fell hard for the Young Oris and had to get a Cool Batch, even though it used up a chunk of budget meant for my “regular” collection. And thanks to the forum tipping me off that eBay test paints are A Thing, I’m watching eBay almost every day now – not with intent to buy things, you understand, just because it’s so fun to see what new test paints come out. And tracking what GB pieces show up. And then the first eBay Wild Young Ori went for under price, and I just had to stick a “full price” bid on the Cool Young Ori that showed up next to make sure he knew he was loved – and wound up winning! So about the time I’m thinking “Okay, the Windstone budget is dead, time to shut the wallet until next year” – THIS guy shows up.

    I took one look at him and was just in love – Little Rock Dragons are probably my *favorite* of all the Windstone sculpts. Modern fantasy – “they live hidden among us” – has been my favorite genre since childhood. I figured he’d get spotted by the other collectors and go for a couple thousand, but no one had bid on him for a couple days – so I ignored the squalling of the wallet, and put down a bid.

    And then – well, to finish a short story run long, he came to live with me. And now I have my very own space dragon! He’s going to work with me, once I get a display box to keep the dust off. I think he’ll be right at home among the NASA stickers Hubble pictures calendar.

    I think I’ve pretty much maxed out my luck this year, not to mention the budget. I hope everyone else lucks into an unexpected prize at least once too!

    Continuing the family tradition of being obsessed with shiny things.
