January 31st

 

When this picture was taken I had a really good memory...which is more than I can say now....

But no I am not going to confess I got the time wrong for our Dental appointment today   (but I did) !!!!!!

Discussing the time we had to be at the Dentist I said  2pm...But as we had not written the time on the calendar we thought the wisest thing to do was to telephone and check.

Well it turned out Lyn's appointment was indeed for 2pm I thought mine was for 2.15pm

But it turned out mine was for 4 pm "although I did have the right day."

I don't mind sitting in the car for half and hour when we go to the Vets....I get entertained by the comings and goings - watching people with their different variety of pets.

But didn't fancy sitting outside the dentists for nearly two hours watching people possibly in pain - or maybe even having to be dragged in...oh I dont know though it might be quite a laugh...

 

So I'm left at home with Nin and Barney while Lyn goes for her appointment....The Dentist isn't very far down the road about 7 miles.

When She arrived home - smiling showing of her gleaming white teeth - she only had to have them polished.

I rushed into the bathroom and cleaned mine for the third time today....    and reluctantly left to go there myself......thinking as driving if my appointment had been for 2.15pm it would all have been done by now..

I arrived opened the door as my dentist opened his - ah he said ..... you can come straight through...didn't have time to sit and think about those needles and drills...He's South African our dentist, and he mumbled away to his nurse ...couldn't understand him he has a very strong accent.

So was delighted when he turned to me and said "You only need a polish"   Yipee thought I - he proceeded to scrape and dig and Brush - Crikey I thought thats the fourth time today. only took about 10 minutes....and the Bill was only £15.00.

I Realllly do like my dentist....

I'm glad you got to the dentist on the right day!! It's nice when you don't need treatment too although a few years back the dentist polished my teeth with such vigour that he took some of the enamel off so I won't let him do it any more as it touches right on the nerves and is excruciatingly painful!! Glad your time there today wasn't traumatic!! Jeannette. http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels

Nice photograph Ally. I won't comment on your appointment time mix up as I once turned up a day early for an ecg...kind nurse took pity on me and did it anyway to save me having to go back the next day!  Eve

I'm smiling cos I got the time mixed up on a dental appointment once and they charge 10.00 for missed appointments so I got charged for being a dunderhead lolol.  The pictures great.......haven't had a proper ice lolly in ages. Rache xx

Hi Ally, what a pretty young lady holding the ice lolly!  I`m glad to know I`m not the only one with an awful memory, though where the dentist is concerned I don`t blame you getting the time wrong.  I`d fiorget it completely if I could...lol!  Lucky you just getting a wash and brush up! :o)

If you don't stop getting your appointments mixed up you are going to have to have a keeper. Just kidding. Thats what I tell myself about myself. One day recently I went to my truck to get a container to take some leftover food home. I took it inside the wenior center and opened it and phew wee. i had forgotten to take some food into the house for several days and did it smell? Paula

You got a good dentist. Mine would have charged me for a missed appointment and have me rescheduled at the crack of dawn the next day.

Bet you are glad that you for 6 months its a great feeling.  I have to get mine scraped and dug out as you put it every 3 months and I hate it. Love Joan.

Good dental health is important.  I need to floss more than I do and I won't have to worry about new cavities.   Mark
