Micro T

There’s a new little boy in our lives. Yes guys, we got a new kitten. He’s with Robert in West Cottage and I haven’t met him yet, but Robbie sends me photos and videos of him on practically a daily basis. I already love…

It’s been a long day so I might be rambling on

Last night some dental floss snagged on the edge of my molar. Oh brother. Today’s emergency dentist appointment confirmed my suspicions: the root canal compromised the porcelain overlay and the porcelain cracked. Oh well, that’s a whole day gone and the near future me…
