We had to go to the dentist because my tooth has been really painful. As it turned out, I have an extraction coming up. The alternative — since this tooth already has a crown — would be drilling through the crown, hoping the crown doesn’t splinter and that there’s a nerve underneath on which to perform a root canal. If not, have it extracted anyway, thereby paying $1400 for the root canal that didn’t happen plus another $300 for the extraction. I decided to have it removed. It’s time for a couple of partial bridges. The good news about the dentist is his office is next to the Mumford River.
I think in honor of our high school graduates, the town has strung American flags all across the bridge over the river. It makes a beautiful vision of a small town on a perfect summer’s day. The flags were interesting and the river is beautiful even as low as it currently is … but who put the chair up there?
