Getting the actual crown today or just the prep and temporary crown until they can get the permanent?
Prep and temp. So getting numbed, and then having the tooth drilled and sanded down. Just hope I don't need a root canal. I had one last summer, it's not bad at all (the vixen lives in mortal fear of one day having to have one) but expensive.

When working with your hair, do you use a brush or comb? I used to always use a comb, but when I got a perm in college, the hair dresser convinced me to use a brush and I have used one since.

Comb after I get out of the shower. After that whatever happens, happens.
I no longer even carry a comb. I keep one in the travel bag and one in the truck mainly because I kept forgetting to take it out.

Neither, it's 2020/2021, au naturel.

That is kind of a haunting picture. Do people cross the street to the far sidewalk when they see you in the yard?
Damn right, social distancing via intimidation. Although the right out of the shower look is mitigated somewhat when you wear an I-State stocking cap over the mop and hide the mustache insanity behind a mask. Me hanging with my good buddy Theodore Wirth at his park yesterday.

Keep it short enough that I have honestly never used either one.

Dentist this morning for yet another crown. All those metal fillings I got as a kid (yes, I ate too much candy!) have "settled" in my teeth and cracked them. This will be #4.......I will be glad to be able to eat hard, crunchy foods again.
Lucky you. I have crowns on well over half my teeth now.
I was at my dentist yesterday. Another crown (this one was 30-35 years old) has given up the ghost. Tooth was "rootcanal-ed" back when they put the crown on. Not enough tooth left to replace the crown, so I'm off and running on implant #3.

Now is the time I dislike, tax season. Had to go through all the medical expenses paid and get them listed and entered for the flex account so I can get everything due for just january first. I know it is easier to do when you pay them, but wife doesn't agree so I get lazy also and wait to the last minute. I hate this part.

Comb? What's that?

Seriously, it would take hours to comb my hair...
It was more aimed at the non orangutans, apes, and monkeys. Pretty soon boxster will fall into that group, people will talk about a big foot siting on the walking trailers if he goes without his mask and hat.

Until I get a vaccine next summer and find a barber it's going to be full on....

I let it fly in the breeze
And get caught in the trees
Give a home for the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas
A hive for the buzzin' bees (buzzin' beeeeeeeesssss)
A nest for birds
There ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my...
HAIR!

My hair was getting to be a real rats nest back in July when I ordered a set of clippers off Amazon and hacked it off.
