Notice the fog. It has been like this for days. I am beginning to think we are a part of London. Our neighbor told me she had seen Martha Stewart decorate her outside pots this way, so if MS can do it so can Kitty Justice. Oops I need to fill the bird feeders.
A little more left over Christmas tree to decorate another pot.
As Father Wilson would say "we took a side journey the last day and half." Mimi had a bump on her gum above her bridge so we took a quick trip to our regular dentist for him to check on it. He thought we should see a specialist to check to see if she needed a root canal. Yikes.
Yesterday we headed to one of the busiest areas of Nashville this time of year (Green Hills). After about 45 minutes of me waiting out front, I was called back to help Mimi make a decision. He had had a cancellation and could do the root canal today or we could schedule it for a later day. I looked at Mimi and she looked at me and we nodded in agreement. "Lets do it today. " I was told it would be an hour so I could go wonder the shops if I wanted . The choice to sit in the waiting room with no visible good magazines to read or television to watch or wonder the shops.
Guess which one, I chose?
I sniffed and touched everything in the body works shop. Read the labels of all kinds of herbs and oils and then headed across the street to Whole Foods. I had been there only one other time. I circled all the aisles at least twice reading and looking and also the food bars. Since it was getting close to the dinner hour and I sure would not want to cook, I started doing some serious looking at the food. After I had found what I wanted and the hour was almost up, I ordered crab cakes and Greek meat balls. Prince is a red meat kind of guy. Then I boxed up some ed mane rice and some grilled asparagus. I got a container of New England Clam Chowder for the Mimi. Also, I got Mimi some French Truffles.
I headed to the silver bullet and put the dinner in the cooler I always keep in the trunk and up the stairs to retrieve Mimi. I sat down and down the hall came Dr. Sparrow. He poked his head out and said he found another canal and it was infected so it would be about another ten minutes. He was glad to have found it as he was just about finished when he poked around one more time. He said it would be about ten minutes. I knew at the time how doctors tell time, so after 3o minutes I went back to get Mimi and they showed us the films and then the bad news. The bridge had popped off and he had temporally put it back on but we need to call Dr. M the first thing in the morning.
We dropped off the prescription for the antibiotics and Prince stopped and picked them up on the way home. When he arrived I heated up our wonderful meal and had a big glass of water. It was soooooo very nice and the food was delicious.
Today we called and sure enough Dr. M wanted to see us at ten and we were there until noon. I finished my 2009 calendar that I carry with me , noting birthdays, anniversaries, special events and telephone numbers and addresses. Dr.M came out and said he did not like the way the bridge looked and he had to put in some new posts. He apologized for the time but Mimi has pretty teeth and he wanted it to look nice, so he was ordering a new bridge to replace the old one and he would not charge for the new one as he stood behind all of his work. Now that is what I call a Dentist with ethics. Too bad others do not follow his lead.
We made Mimi and appointed and it was the first one to be put in the 2009 calendar. Ah, now I am tired. Nothing like sitting around in a dentist office to wear a body out. My back does not bother me if I keep changing positions but if I sit, stand or lay too long, I am in for some pain.
The Kitty Justice is we averted a crisis during the holidays.
