A Little Bit of This ..

Yesterday was Thursday the 25th of January 2024

Today I completed (well at least “For Now”) the dental work that began on January the 5th when a tooth “broke off” as I was eating cereal. January the 8th was the major appointment getting a temporary crown installed.  Then today the permanent crown was installed.

It IS a big relief to have this (“road bump in life”) behind me” (well at least “For Now”). I said well at least “For Now” twice because one never knows 100% about certain dental procedures immediately. So after a month or two or even three I will REALLY know. 

Kathleen, one of our closest friends for over 30 years, had her own dental challenges this past two days so we “compared notes” along the way.

A Little Bit of That ..

From The One The Only .. Frostbite Frank.

Frank dates his texts using the Italian word Gennaio (January). Febbraio is coming up followed by (Taa Daa) Marzo and Aprile.

What happens to Hippies when they get old??

Love it Frank.

The trullo shown below is the ancient residential structure of the area (Puglia). They are everywhere. I thought that the conical roofs were chimneys, but Raphaele says no (I’m not sure he’s correct though, since there is no other chimney). The standards on the tops of the trulli are tax ornaments: they established how much tax the resident owed to the local lord. The bulges and topnots identify how much land the owner cultivated, and thus how much he owed. Efficient way to make sure they don’t get over or undertaxed!

Below are two nice photos with a short Robert Frost poem sent by Frank.

“The woods are lovely, dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep
And miles to go before I sleep.

Robert Frost

This Robert Frost poem is often interpreted as conveying an attraction toward death, indicated in the final lines: ‘The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep. ‘ Here, the woods and the ‘sleep’ to which the speaker refers represent death.

Where oh Where would I be without Google and Wikipedia!

Whewie Ff .. Frostbite frank ..

There must be more but it’s been sort of a challenging (dental) day for me. Believe it or not (I myself can’t) this Post took me just under two hours to put together.
