I can chew on my favorite side again. After about 1 1/2 hrs. of drilling, probing, xrays & filling. It wasn't bad at all & I didn't need novocaine (couldn't find the correct spelling but I think you can get what I mean). That was a nice surprise. He suggested I have them capped & then they'll last a long time. I have no idea of the cost or if it is really necessary at my age. It wasn't a bad experience at all. But I'm glad it's over.
We enjoyed our turkey dinner yesterday & Dale & I had leftovers tonite. I didn't lose my appetite. I had to get a prescription, in fact he gave me 2 to get filled but I only filled the one for penicillin & I didn't think I needed the one for extra strong pain pill. I fell no pain at all.
Barb has to spend another nite at Johansens as they didn't leave til today. Going down the traffic was very heavy & they hoped to miss some of it
Easter service at church was good attendance wise & all ways. Pastor Nancy Schwanke had the service & she is well liked. The extra flowers added a lot as well.
Last Fri. nite we went out to dinner at Holiday Inn to celebrate Barb & Dale's birthdays. Dale had Surf & Turf & enjoyed it. Lar had Prime rib. Barb had Steak Diane. Kim had a vegetable dish & I had the fish fry. And dessert -- a brownie topped with ice cream, egg whites covered it & it was broiled. Baked Alaska & it was so good & so filling.
Next is Lar's birthday & he'll have steak, etc. but carrot cake for dessert.
Torey's back paw pads are worn thin so it is hard for him to walk. Last Sat. they walked 4 miles twice. Kim has gotten a bootie for his back paws & he keeps them on but they wear out fast.
Last Sat. Dale trimmed the fir trees in the back yard by the fence. He must have cut off a foot of top branches from the trees. I can't believe how much light they cut out. It is so much lighter now & we can see the play ground equipment n
Dale cut the grass last Fri. & after rain during the nite & some today, it won't be long before it needs cutting again. It is nice & green.
Karen S. son & daughter were in church yesterday with Rose. Kirstin is a very attractive girl. Rick, the dad, plans to get married this spring. She has 2 children but they are adults & on their own.
Wed. the 23rd
Barb is home again. After lunch we went to Jamestown. I got a pair of a darker tan slacks with elastic waist. I like them for everyday. And 2 tops. Guess you'd say "I'm spending my kids' inheritance." Ha!Ha! But this should end it -- unless I can find a pretty skirt! We also grocery shopped at Wegman's. It is a large store with a variety of many different kinds of food. Also an organic section Barb likes. It wasn't as busy as it is on Fri. Usually I go into KMart & Barb goes to Wegman's, but I didn't have my keys with me so that is why I went into Wegman's. Usually I just wait in the car. That's what happens when you get forgetful!! They are back where they belong.
It didn't warm up much today -- a cool wind but the sky is clear & blue & there is sunshine.
I got my blouse at Sears -- they have improved their inventory so much. I like their styles better than Penney's. Warren Bon Ton doesn't have much to please me except the Brigg's slacks.
Barb got a perm yesterday -- it looks nice. The gal who does her hair moved to another shop & Barb said they have a little gift shop with a lot of nice things that aren't too expensive.
Thurs. Apr. 24
For dessert tonite I made an apple upside down cake & I thought it was good. We also had creamed chicken on biscuits & peas for the veggie. And fruit salad.
We're planning to go to Erie the 2nd Fri. in May. I'm sure we'll have lunch at our favorite spot & I can't remember the name -- some kind of Garden that serves Italian foods. I love their soup & bread sticks.
We had frost this A.M. 29 at 6 A.M.
Careys will be home next Mon. Larry & Kim are invited to Paula & John's baby baptism the first Sun. in June. They don't really care to go. This Sat. nite Lar & Kim are hosting a couple's party at camp. They choose a theme & then choose food to go with it. A "chips" party. There will be both hot & cold dips for chips & a chip casserole with beef & one with chicken.
