Visiting with Matthew and family

Thor, the puppy, is 4 months old and weighs 60 pounds. Gabriel made sure he knew who was the boss of him. Gabriel would lift up his lip and show his monster teeth, but every time he crinkled up his nose he had to sneeze. Kind of took the fearsomeness out of it. Every now and then he would yip and charge at Thor, just to back him up some. Mom told him he was being UGLY! I tried to put the video below, but if it doesn't show up for you, click here.

c'dale library book sale

I went to the Carbondale Library book sale this morning. I bought a couple of bags of books, and may go back tomorrow for the 1/2 price sale. I found a nice Reader's Digest edition of Carl Sandburg's Lincoln, illustrated and with its dust jacket. That will be winding its way to Brian. I have a big stack of Barbara Cartland books up for auction..... right now. They are mostly Regency romances..... which I normally love.... but she writes with a lot of ..... breathless brainless babes..... they can't ever finish a sentence and it drives me crazy.....really.....what does anyone need commas for?

Three hour tour of the Dentist Chair

Yup, three hours. Two simple little fillings first, then he attacked my upper back crowns on the right side. Drilled through stinky porcelain and metal. Yucky. Then drilled out some decay. Unfortunately for us, it went up under the gum line, and my gums went bonkers bleeding. He was afraid we weren't going to get the impressions for the new crowns, but the assistant went to town on my gums and finally got the bleeding stopped.
Did I ever tell you how much I hate going to the Dentist? It's not the Dentist himself. It's that dang drill! I hate it. Even more now that I know what it smells like going through crown material. I still have two more to take off on the left side. Someday, far away. And then you have to pay them for making you miserable. Where is the justice in that?

Don't freeze potato salad!

Don't. When you thaw it to eat, the potatoes are yucky. How do they freeze french fries and shredded potatoes? What magic thing do they do to them, and what chemicals are involved? Do I really want to know?

However, the bread pudding was a big hit. They want more, please.
