Uneasy is the Head that has a Crown in it

I had a dental appointment this morning.

The joys of old age- I had lost a crown on a molar. To me, if there is anything worse than grey hair, it’s trying to keep your teeth that may not necessarily want to stay with you. The benefit is , thank God, for my retirement insurance plan. The “bite” , pardon the pun, won’t be too bad.

So now I realize why people tended toward softer food as they got older.

On the bright side, I am in a good spot to be in.


..and with a pause in the action…

…the score is storm coming, 2, and us,0.

Here we are, waiting for the next set of storms to come.

The dogs are bananas, feeling the storm coming and barometric pressure falling, and panting to beat the band. I was out at the dentist, and coming back,was busy noticing the twenty-foot mimosa tree on the neighboring street.As a child coming down the shore in the sixties, you saw mimosa trees everywhere. They grew like weeds. I think that’s why I saw so few in the later decades, because people kept having them taken out or cut down.

We have a tree-lined area in the next street, and I noticed this big tree from my neighbor’s yard.Mimosas are actually very pretty when they are in flower, as they are now.The pink reminds me of Mother’s Day pink carnations and the spiny flower reminds me almost of a mum.

It’s easy to appreciate this tree from a distance.I am just glad it’s not mine. I’d be pulling baby mimosa trees until I drop.

Feeling hopeful

Well, our day has been busy so far.

We have a completed vet visit under our belt with both the girls getting shots. Now we are back and they had their second walk, and I am up to bat next with a dental trip.

During the second walk, I took the shot below of the girls.My homage to Joe Pesci’s mom in Goodfellas-” One looks one way, one looks the other”picture.

I am hoping and feel good about the chance that we have to have a good restful, yet working weekend.

Here’s hoping you have the same.

Back to life as we know it.

It was kind of nice having five whole days in a row not checking in at the office.

It’s over.

I would like to make it in to work tomorrow,and it will truly be challenging, as they are calling for an inch an hour snowfall between 3 a.m. and 11 a.m……uh-huh..AGAIN! In honor of this forecast, I am calling it a night in order to get a good night’s sleep.By the way, throw in a dental appointment tomorrow ,too!

Catch you in the morning.

Let it snow…

I had a Dentist appointment today for a permanent filling over my root canal.

Yeah.

I just looked out over the window here in the office.

I called Donna, the receptionist and said…there is no way I can make a 3PM appointment.I am watching it come down at a clip now.I can not hardly think of what will be by 3PM.Long story short? Appointment for next Monday.

Let it snow, let it snow, as I will probably take 5 hours to get home….

Hope not!

Back to the DDS….

I get to leave work early today.

Not for fun, but to go to the dentist. My OLD dentist, not the one who loaded up my dental insurance last year right before the end of the year.

it’s amazing how I can still remember sitting in the high-tech chair,specifically asking him to space some of the work through the new year. My request fell on deaf ears. Add in the fact that he had a technician fit me for my crowns. Oh, yeah, HE designed them on the computer, but a technician put them in. EXCUSE ME? Did I miss the part where technicians got dentist status.

Anyhow, feel free to send me your email in private and I happily will give you the guys name. The old dentist, I’ll give you his name too!
