About This File
Hello Everybody. I think this one came out pretty good. It's just under 3 and a half minutes. I planned a month long trip from mid September to mid October, two weeks in Colorado and two weeks in Utah. On the third day I started getting a toothache. Great. It got worse fast. So instead of a month I got 5 days, two of which were mostly driving. In the old days I could have made an appointment with my dentist and said, "Pull the rascal”. Now I have to go to the dentist, pay him, get a referral, go to that dentist, have a consultation, pay him for that, then he schedules me for October 4th to actually pull the tooth, and then needs more money. What a racket. When I called my main dentist the receptionist told me to take ibuprofen. It worked. If I'd know that I would still be in Colorado. BTW, when I was 50, I remember this as up until then I had 32 teeth, I got a real bad toothache while camping in Utah with Karen and our dogs Sammy and Lomax. It was on a Friday and dentist's usually work up until noon Thursday. We stopped in Moab to see if anyone was open on Friday. Luckily we found one in Monticello about 50 miles away. The dentist's office was in a mobile home. He had a high school girl as his helper. I said I needed a tooth pulled. He walked in and started chatting pleasantly and then pulled the tooth. One stop, one fee. And he was the best dentist I've ever encountered.
