208/365 Crooked Smile

I'm still a little swollen so the smile is a little crooked.  I'm not in any pain and the dentures are fitting great.  Thanks everyone!

207/365 Pearly White Smile

Made it through the dental visit without much of a problem.  This is my pain reliever of choice, ibuprofen.  It just seems to work better than anything I've tried.  I'm just a little swollen but ice packs and these have been all I've needed.  Sorry I didn't have a shot of my new pearly whites but it won't be long!  I'll catch up with everyone soon!  Thank you all.

198/365 Ready For The Road

My Wife's car is all cleaned up and ready for vacation.  We're just sticking sort of close to home.  We're going to the Newport Aquarium tomorrow.  The car is a 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser, 4 cyl, auto, with a/c.  It gets 26 mpg on the road with the a/c on.  I don't believe it has 90k miles on it yet.  sooc.

193/365 Thunderstorm Cool Down

High temperature before the storm was 96 F with a heat index close to 115 F.  It is now 75 F and we're under a flash flood watch, though we are in no danger.  Glad for the slight cooling.  Reflection and drops on the windshield of my Wife's car.

183/365 Learn Spanish

One of the things I've wanted to do is learn Spanish.  I've procrastinated long enough.  I picked up this beginning Spanish book to get things started.  With the free time I have now I should be able to get into some classes that I have looked into in the past.
