Teeth! -- Tues., Feb. 5

Temporary crowns, but teeth to fill in the gaps and breaks. It's been 4-1/2 months since my fall, so I'm very happy to have temporary teeth. My permanent crowns will be at the dentist in 2-1/2 weeks. Now the inside of my upper gum won't feel like jello from rubbing against the broken teeth! Yay.

Two front teeth and small tooth to the right are temporary crowns.

The anesthesia is wearing off and my mouth hurts. Ouch.

The prognosis is that for the rest of my life I cannot bite on carrots, peanut brittle, apples, corn on the cob with my crowns. I can, however, eat sandwiches, burgers, tacos, using my front teeth, as long as I don't make any ripping movements like say, with beef jerky. So no beef jerky, not that I ever eat it. If I use my side teeth to bite carrots, peanut brittle, etc., that's okay, just not with the permanent crowns (once I get them).

On the way home from the dentist I stopped at the $5.00 Exterior Car Wash with free do-it-yourself vacuum included. On the way out, I say the beautiful mural of the Statue of Liberty. I snapped a photo from my car, but it's off to the side. I was going to get out and take a better photo, but two people were trying to go around me. Oops. Here's my effort. It's kind of cool with the tree branch shadows over it.

At the RV park, I noticed the following sign...

If you plan to stay at Traveler's World RV in San Antonio, you better have a reservation. This place is popular! Since yesterday, every single space has been full. It might be because the San Antonio Rodeo is Feb. 7-23.

The park is hoppin'. Lots of people out walking dogs, walking themselves, swimming, bike riding, talking and hanging out at their picnic tables. It was almost 80 today!!

Tomorrow we have an 80% chance of thunderstorms. Yep, right after I get my car washed. That was always a joke in Oregon because it seemed like it was always raining.

For dinner, I cooked a pot of home made chili. It smells good simmering on the stove. We also have a big green salad with avocado, red peppers, tomatoes and blueberries. I can hardly wait...I haven't eaten since oatmeal for breakfast at 11:00 a.m.

Not a lot happening, but getting some temporary teeth is pretty exciting (to me).

Have a great week.
