Retired at 54 to southern UT. BIG mistake. Oh, well, guess I'm stuck for a while. Husband and I cater to 3 cats. We also foster so it's rare that we don't have a spare cat or some kittens in the house. When we don't, it seems odd.

    I see my DDS twice a year on schedule and of course if anything comes up between times. I seem to have inherited bad teeth genes from my mother, who never took care of hers. As soon as I was 18, it was my own responsibility to take care of my own mouth. I’m lucky that I have dual insurance so some of that $5K will be taken care of but I don’t know how much yet. I still have to pony up $3700 when I go in on Sept 1. I think medicare should include some dental package in there. Bad teeth can lead to so many more health issues.

    Brad will be up in Cedar working the rodeo or events again. I asked what he’d be doing and he said he’s the stripping chutes boss now. Stripping?? Cowboys stripping? Sign me up, count me in! Do I get to pick which ones I want to strip?

    Apparently that’s not the fun thing I thought it was. It’s the chutes where the steers or broncs or bulls go after a ride and the ropes or reins have to be removed. Hence the stripping. That’s not nearly as interesting as I’d hoped.

    Off topic but my current frustration level is at about a 9.

    1. My computer is giving me fits. I’ve had Logan and Ronnie on it via remote for a week and finally took the darn thing into the office yesterday. It was a last resort because it’s my desktop one and a pain in the patootie to get all unhooked then rehooked up. So, I’m on the laptop until next week some time. I really only use this on trips so don’t have all of my ‘stuff’ which annoys me.

    2. Earlier this month I had to see my DDS for something and he found a cavity under a 3 part bridge. This is never good. The plan was to remove it, take care of it and put on a new bridge. Well, as we all know, things go awry when you least expect them.

    That little visit has turned into a trip to the oral surgeon yesterday that will result in not one, but TWO new implants. I won’t bore you with the minutiae of it all, but the bottom line is that $5K and 4 months later this will all be done. If you’ve never had an implant, the 4 months is the healing time once the bad tooth/teeth come out. But wait…there’s MORE!!

    Usually, if the tooth/teeth are in the back, no problem. You just have holes until the implants go in. Are mine in the back? Of course not. So, my regular DDS had to get an impression and make what’s called a flipper. It’s kind of like a temporary partial denture so I won’t look like Hillbilly Helen. I only wear it out in public.

    With trips coming up (Vegas next month and OKC in late Oct), I am not a happy camper.

    Nice. I saw the ‘before’ picture, too. They look so much better.

    Do people really do that? If it’s just Earl, the daughter and grandson, what’s the point? And, if there were more people, who’s to say stickers won’t get changed? Just make a will or a trust.

    That was my first thought.

    This could take a while.

    Try the house first. If she’s unhappy, move her to the garage.You’re not a bad person for using option two if needed. She’s been wild for too long. You know she’ll be safe, well fed and warm during the winter.

    Keeping her in one room is kind of mean. There’s not nearly enough contact with you unless you plan to go in and out all day long. Which is kind of impossible when you work.
