...so say my top teeth at 9:30 AM. The next picture you see of me
smiling will be with shiny new fake ones. All hail plastics technology!
These are the gentle pictures, you'll note, for those who got grossed
out when I posted the one showing just how bad they really are. :)
ETA: I'm home. typing one handed to hold ice on face. pretty significant pain but tylenol with codiene help. dom making me jello for later, meanwhile having a pudding cup. eggs will be supper. and yogurt. taking pills is hard, so afraid of getting caught in denture - ptsd from braces days. Massive amount of saliva - will be sleeping on several towels with backups. Thanks for the good wishes everryone!
ETA #2. I just smiled at myself in the mirror. And cried. :) :) :)

With kudos to mat and team if it works...
These are pics from a few weeks ago, the same day I took the flower and bug pics. While I was taking those, Don had hired a huge jackhammer and was taking the protruding tops off the huge chunk of granite ledge that runs down the side of the house. These rocks have been the bane of his existence since he was old enough to run the lawnmower. I helped load rocks when he wasn't jackhammering but stayed well away when he was working with it.
In the third pic, I'm standing almost to the road on the first rock tip. The ledge extends well beyond Don, out under and past the shed back there. BIG rock.
Also, perhaps Geo or Euphro might be interested in the rock in the first pic, it was in amongst the granite, and is a bit odd and pumice like. I meant to save a piece but didn't, although I could always go digging in the rock pile to find more. ;)
Some of you may remember this post
and this one
(a little bit icky, you're warned) from my failed DailyMe moblog. After 6 months of financial finagling we've finally got it sorted and I am having my first hygiene appointment next week, the other one sometime in the next few weeks, and the big day to remove all of the bad teeth (15 in all - all the top ones and 2 bottoms) on the 31st of July. Finally. You all may actually get to see me smiling at some point this year!

Don's friend Jim, same fellow that owns the grasshopper tractor in
earlier sets, has this neat table of small to miniature steam powered
