As I begin to write this it is a dreary, rainy, cool day around here. I suppose the highlight of the passed week was another procedure in my dental implant situation. This has been going on since Oct. 31, 2014. I was told it would take 4 to 6 months for the complete procedure. At this point it looks like it will finish up in September for various annoying and boring reasons. Everything is going along fine. On Friday I had some pins put in. I have stitches in my mouth and there really wasn't much pain. I went directly from the oral surgeon to the pharmacy. I was still bleeding a bit so I must have looked like I just came lunch at Dracula's. "More type O?"
The 4th of July always has a way of sneaking up on me. Aside from maybe going next door to Arlene's or another friends house I really don't do much. I might even have to work and I really don't care. The big celebration around here is not that far away, about 5 miles. That's where the Boston Pops play and they have a big fireworks display. I have no intentions of going. Just you and several hundred thousand of your closest friends. There are several spots we can see the display from very close by. Who knows depending on the weather, always a big if, maybe we will go down there. It's less than a mile. Of course with a large gathering there are always concerns about safety and we're hearing a lot on the news about, "If you see something, say something." Hundreds of thousands of people in one spot could be tempting to some lunatic.
Celebrations like these are going on all over the country. Large crowds can be a target of some sort of attack. I did go to one of 4th Pop concerts back in 1976. Even then there was a huge crowd and we weren't very close to the hatch shell.
Here are two pictures from the internet.
On Monday morning I bring my car in for some service. My car is from 2008 and I have to say it has been dead reliable. Apart from some really crappy chromed wheels, which were peeling and had to be replaced I have not had one major problem with this car. I had more problems with the dealership. But now there is a water leak. The sun roof is suspected. I'll have the brakes looked at as well as they are the original factory brakes. Why should I tempt fate? It seems that I will have to get a rental though. Arghh!!!
So that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I'm outta here.
