Automobiles of art:
But for the present:
We drove across the Border this AM. The dentist has a new hairdo. Her hair is short this year. She is still very pretty. I will try to remember to get her picture.
She took Son Mark in first. He came out a short time later after the x-rays and consultation. He had waited too late and the teeth could not be saved. He is not a good candidate for implants at this time. Needless to say he is disappointed. Since the results will be dentures he will do that back in Florida.
But the trip is not a total loss. I told her of two areas I needed a lot of help. I have one area between teeth that must be flossed out, half of every meal is left there methinks. And on the opposite side of my mouth there is a ‘fractured tooth’ that has given me no problem so I have let it be.
After looking x-rays and talking she said YES you have a big hole where the food likes to stay. I think I can fix that. She said the fractured tooth should be capped because sooner of later it is gonna cause problems. I agreed.
So as I type I have three temp caps Awaiting the permanent ones Friday.
So this will make the trip worth it. I will save the price of the diesel and overnight costs by getting it done.
Backing up, this is some rice fields and baled cotton in Louisiana. (The cotton did not come out!)
And I love these old suspended trestles here in Texas, reminding me of my past,
