You know how much I don’t like going to town. Today I had to go to the dentist. It was just for a cleaning and x-rays. My hygienist is my friend so we’re both talking the whole time she’s cleaning my teeth. She’s talking and the minute she takes her hands and tools out of my mouth, I’m talking. Then the dentist comes in and he’s hilarious. Today he said “Judy! I’ve been thinking about you a lot!” I said “Really? That’s kinda strange!” and we both laughed. He’s like an old hippie – long, gray hair . . like ponytail long. He is mystified by my tooth that’s had two root canals and still hurts. Several years ago, a different dentist put crowns on two teeth and I think he botched them both. I ended up switching dentists and the new one sent me to San Angelo to get root canals on both teeth. They kept hurting so the endodontist did both root canals again. One tooth did finally get pulled. At first, the new dentist didn’t want to pull the second tooth but now, he’s decided to take the crown off (he can see that it isn’t right), put on a temporary crown and see how the tooth does with that. If it still hurts, we’ll know the tooth has to be pulled. If the tooth doesn’t hurt with the temporary crown, then we’ll figure a permanent crown should solve my problems . . except we have no dental insurance since Vince retired. Ouch!
I left the dentist and was headed to Walmart for several things. When I passed by a restaurant owned by a friend, there were no customer cars so I stopped by and visited with her for a while, then I decided I wouldn’t go to Walmart. We have to go to town tomorrow anyway to drop off eggs. My car needs gas before I start to MO. I need a few things from Walmart so tomorrow Vince and I will run to town, do what we need to do, so there was no use in me going this afternoon.
Dinner has been served. The kitchen is cleaned so I’m going to sit and knit the rest of the night.
