Got back out over the weekend. Let's see how long I can stay home this time, lol.

Good grief. Just got home from going to dentist for 6-month check. It seems there is a large cavity under one of my many crowns, causing a need to replace the crown and probable root canal and the crown next to it will need replacing, too.

Yep, that's what happens as we get older. Tooth decay !! I have a whole list of stuff the dentist wants to do to me and I told him to get the insurance estimate before I commit to an appointment. Nothing hurts, nothing seems amiss, so how do I know he is being honest? I don't.

I've been going to the same dentist for a really long time. He is pretty good at accepting I can't afford something. I had x-rays today and I could see the area of decay and what could cause the root canal.

I also have dental insurance. They don't pay a lot but every little bit helps.

Escort, travelin' mercies; N.O. for fun; did you enjoy your time there ? Possibly on my bucket list.

MMOB, happy you are home; thanks for letting us know.

Dental? Told to floss by the hygenist, no reason given. Now know I have periodontal disease, loss of bone---no symptoms, showed up on the x-rays. Floss-every day, well almost !

Walked on a trail over looking the San Juan Straits, enjoyed the cool weather. 82* on the Oly. Peninsula---heat wave ! Warm for me as I moved from a city near Sacramento, CA, 90 normal summer temp. 100 + Hot ! It did cool in the evenings.

? Bucket list, do you have one or just live day to day. Please share some of what is on your list---Thank you, merci, danke !

Been doing research on my ancestors. Got as far as 1600 England on my maternal side, and 1700's Kentucky paternal side. A revolutionary war Captain, a Civil War soldier, and a Spanish American War soldier in my past along with WW2. Seems everyone had about 15 kids. Must have been some cold winters back then. Fascinating stuff, but my brain is about to explode.

My wife is a descendant of the Plantagenets. Which makes her related to some very famous people.

SERA -- You asked about "Bucket Lists" -- Well, I do not have any official written-down list, but there are some things in the back of my mind that I would love to do, sometime in the remainder of my life. And there are things that I would love to have happen -- and I can't control them because they involve other peoples lives'.

Bucket List:
* Ride the Durango-Silverton Railroad
* Ride the California Zephyer from LA to Chicago
* Drive up the Pacific Coast Highway
* Visit Cape Cod, MA and the Jersey Shore
* Take a Mississippi Queen riverboat cruise down the Mississippi to New Orleans
*Visit Eureka Springs, AR again [was there 40 years ago before it was "discovered"]
* spend a week taking classes at the Biltmore Mansion

On July 11th of this month, one of my "Bucket List" items was postponed, but I am still hopeful. We had tickets to see Tony Bennett perform at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix and the show was cancelled and re-scheduled in December. So hopefully he will be able to perform in this future concert.

HollyhockGarden, be aware that the Pacific Coast Highway is currently closed. Not all of it, but the most scenic part between Monterey and Cambria/Morro Bay. The Big Sur part. A bridge washed out several years ago, then a rain-fueled, saturated-soil mud slide this past winter. It will be several years before they are able to stabilize the hillside and reconstruct the highway.

My "to do" list is temporarily suspended because I'm still trying to finish packing up my old place and move everything to my new place. Packing is taking a whole lot longer than I would have ever imagined. Perhaps, next summer, I'll be in shape to accomplish one of my goals. To cycle once again across the country, from the Pacific to the Atlantic this time. Went the first time in 1995, but in the "wrong" direction, from east to west. This time, I'll go from west to east with the prevailing wind and hopefully along the northern tier.

On another note. Even though I'm back and forth between my new place and the old place, I've stayed enough in the new place to start getting a real feel about it. It's a 55+ community, and what I'm really liking is the "sense of community". It's nice having a tight-knit community of neighbors.

However, I'm starting to see the sad side. Even though it is a smaller community; somewhere around 250 units, at least once a month or so an announcement in the daily e-mailed 'schedule of activities' about so-and-so dying is disseminated. I guess that's the cycle of life that I haven't experienced too often, but is now a constant reminder. Something I hadn't thought about much before.
