“I’m sorry, so sorry”

I am sorry about not writing today. I had an early, well not so early for most people, dentist appointment.

First I loaded the car then went to the dump and finally to the dentist. When I got home, I had the mother of all headaches so I went upstairs to lie down. Note I said lie down-how silly  I was. I fell asleep for a few hours with my glasses still on and the unread book open. When I woke up, I still had the headache so I took a few pills. They worked. The headache is waning.

I’ll be back tomorrow with rings on my fingers and bells on my toes.

    Oh right – like I wouldn’t recognize that last line as being from ‘Limehouse Blues’ … not likely, y’ know.

    You have, it seems, mastered the Art of Having Fun … esp. the dentist part. Maybe the headache was a natural progression from the Dental Delites … ?

    I usually tried to go to sleep after I visited my dentist. Sometimes the leftover narcotic from the office did the trick.

    In the meantime, here’s Chet Atkins and Les Paul performing the aforementioned ‘Limehouse Blues’ … enjoy …

      Richard,
      It was an easy dentist appointment-just my biannual cleaning and a few x-rays.

      I had to look up the history of Limehouse Blues. It has quite a pedigree.

      I, however, was thinking of the nursery rhyme.

      Ride a c ock horse to Banbury Cross
      To see a fine lady upon a white horse;
      With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
      She shall have music wherever she goes.

    I think we should all say we’re sorry you had to go to the dentist today. No one should be expected to “work” after that. (I always take the rest of the day off after an appointment, personally.)

      sprite,
      Thanks, sprite. I did wake up feeling better, but I am still tired. I figured my mind and I could both use a rest.

      My Dear Hedley,

      Have a most wonderful weekend with The Prince! Any plans?

      • Hedley Says:

        Right now we are watching “Shaun the Sheep”, we might take in Batman and Superman tomorrow morning, he has a party in the afternoon and then we will hit with vigil down the John Fisher

        The EB has been somewhat “poo-pooed” by the 9 year old but we are prepared

        So pretty much nothing !

        MDH,
        Yup, nine is about the end of holiday fantasy. It’s a little sad.

        The weekend sounds full. I hope you have a wonderful time with The Prince!!

    The thought of going to the dentist gives me a headache. Not the pain of the procedure but the thought of the bill. 🙂 My ancestors bequeathed me bad teeth. I have put several dentist’s kids through college over the years. It’s been amazingly warm here in NJ. Today we had a cool front go through and the afternoon temperature was in the upper 60s.

      Bob,
      I have dental insurance which pays for the cleaning twice a year and a portion of all other work. I only paid $100.00 for the periodontal work a few weeks ago.

      I was the only one who wore braces which did a job on my teeth as they are soft. I had to have all work done before I left for Ghana. My dad said seeing I wrecked my teeth on his watch he’d pay for it all but after that it would be up to me. I am quite faithful in taking care of my teeth since then.

      We were warmer here than in Boston by 18˚. WE were in the high 50’s. It is raining right now.

      • Bob Says:

        I also have dental insurance and the twice yearly cleanings gives your dentist a chance to find things to repair in your mouth, 🙂

        Dentistry is a wonderful profession. You start out having amalgem fillings which only last a few years. when they need to be replaced. Later the fillings need to be replaced with crowns, then root canals and finally implants or dentures. It’s a lifetime of work and money for the dentist.

        Bob,
        The only work I’ve had in a long time was done by the periodontist who removed the growths from my mouth. Luckily I haven’t needed any other dental work in a long time. I guess I’ve been lucky.
