The Good and the Bad....

This is the umpteenth continuation of the still not ended story of *My Dentist and I*. First the good news - I now belong to the crowned heads of Europe. Well, the crowns are now on my teeth after many long struggles. The dentist has so much patience, he kept filing till it all fitted, and all of a sudden it was done! But now for the bad news - I have to go back again next Thursday, for a final check up and control....And then, I hope, it will be over!! Yoooohoooooo! After weeks of living off food like semolina and mashed potatoes, I will be able to bite again! I was really knocked out by the time I got back home, it is very strenuous lying there open mouthed for over 2 hours. I bet the dentist and his 2 assistants were tired out, too. Anyway, I treated myself to an afternoon on my recliner with Harry Potter for company. In the evening I managed 2 little note books; one with a Claude Lorrain cover again, and the other in gold-leather look with a wire binding. Then I spent the rest of the evening lazing, too; sometimes it is just necessary.

As I was up early this morning, I managed to catch another beautiful sunrise from my balcony, although t was freezing cold outside!

As I am writing, a band of cloud has already covered it up!
And this is a You-tube Video sent to me by Narda again, it is from the Carlson School of Management in Minnesota. Enjoy!

Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks for stopping by!
