Wednesday 03

Wednesday 03- I woke up and immediately grabbed the phone and called my dentist to see if there were any cancellations. The lady said if I could be here at 10:45am she could fit me in. It was 10am, and I told her I’d be right down. I hurriedly got dressed, brushed my teeth, combed my hair and I was off. I first had to drive to Stoney’s so I could use his car for the drive into town; remember I can’t drive the Gross Polluter because of no headlights. My dentist is in Twentynine Palms so it took about a half hour to arrive. The dentist was new there and I jokingly said “Oh No! He laughed and said not to worry. His name is Justin Polanco D.D.S. and the reason I telling you his name is because he is very good at what he does and is very caring. There was no pain involved with the extraction, he even wrote me out a prescription without me asking in case I have any pain afterwards. When I went to pay the bill I told the receptionist that I thought he was very good and she told me that he is really good with children. When he goes to stick the needle into their gums he tells the kids to lift their right leg and then the left which distracts them and they didn’t even know he had already had given them the shot! I will make him my permanent dentist
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 43 and 64 degrees, SW winds of 8 to 14 MPH, humidity around 38 percent, sunny skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Thursday: Sunny, with a high near 59. Breezy, with a west northwest wind 15 to 18 mph increasing to between 26 and 29 mph. Thursday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 39. West wind between 11 and 14 mph becoming calm. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph.”
I got back home with a numb mouth that stayed that way for the better part of the day. I didn’t have any breakfast because I had to leave early and couldn’t eat anything for a spell, so I busied myself doing small chores around the house and watered the plants outside. I can’t do any exercises for a couple of days until the hole where my tooth had been heals. Also I’m supposed to rest today so as not to put any pressure on the hole. So I just kicked back, went online, and read articles on Wikipedia. I’d be reading one article, find something of interest, click on that, and read it until I found something else. It’s amazing some of the places you end up at. I was reading about Liberty Ships and ended up Tramp Steamers that had a link to a website for traveling around the world in cargo vessels, cool! I spent hours doing this and went to many interesting sites.
At 6:31pm I went outside to watch the International Space Station do a flyby! It came out of the WSW and slowly worked its way across the sky, which was cool too! I cooked up and ate some oatmeal; I was really hungry!
I watched “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith” (2005). I’ve never seen it before and actually never heard of it! I borrowed Episodes 3-6 from my friend Mac and I wonder if I haven’t seen any of those yet. I guess I’m really behind on my Star Wars movies.
I practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
