Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Some of my Best Friends Are...

Posted by Picasa                                             DENTISTS!
These are great people socially, and we have had many good times over the years, but... When the old molar starts aching and the prognosis is that the tooth is history, I'm actually not too keen on them professionally. I have been living on ibuprofin for the last few days, and today was the day of decision! Out it comes! I am planning a nice restful night with an 8:00 am appointment.

I have long memories of the old family dentist. he was not a believer in freezing nerves before extraction. I had  too small a jaw for my permanent teeth, so ended up with 8 teeth being pulled at one time with no freezing. I can still feel the pain 60 years later!

Fortunately ( so I am told), things have  improved over the years. Now if I can just convince my brain that this is truly so by 8:00 am, things will be fine!

The good Lord did a very good job of designing the human body, with one exception (again, in my opinion), who am I to question? That one flaw is why do the tooth nerves have to be three feet long and thick as my wrist? That is how I remember my last  episode.

Any of you been traumatised by the dental profession?
