The Root Of The Problem

Had a root canal procedure on my #4 tooth this morning and it wasn’t a big deal. A couple people told me how painful it was going to be. Bull feathers! Didn’t feel a thing after they shot me up.

I previously researched the procedure so I knew what to expect. The dentist drills first then continues to ream out the tooth with different sized files until all the nerve and pulp are removed. Multiple x-rays are taken to record the progress. I know. Stop already!

Amoxicillin to treat any associated potential infection and Hydroco/Acetaminop for residual pain was also prescribed. I added a measure of Blue Bell, Made in the Shade ice cream to the mix for flavor. One caveat though. No alcohol allowed with the pain killer.

I get the crown put on next week. That’ll be enough dentistry for awhile.

Yesterday must have been club rental Tuesday at Fallen Oak. A group of thirty-two came down from Canada and only four brought their own sticks. We had to borrow twelve sets from Shell Landing to fill the void.

The staff had earmarked seven sets already for a late afternoon group. Another party of the same number had to be turned away later. They all needed rentals but didn’t reserve in advance.

Gun crime has plunged, but Americans think it’s up, study says – Tell a lie often enough …

  1. Well, it finally happened. The impetus to unsubscribe has arrived. When the opening is a root canal story, we know the publisher is getting way removed from the game/tour. Its been a fun ride Larry, thanks for all you’ve done. But I have the feeling you’re one column away from buying stories from Kosmo Kramer ala J. Peterman.

    Are we really celebrating? The lies and desperate interpretations are always courtesy of the pro-gun crowd. From the article:

    “Between 1993 and 2011, more than two out of three killings in the U.S. were carried out with guns, the bureau found.”

    “Though violence has dropped, the U.S. still has a higher murder rate than most other developed countries…”

    All they have done, is moved Down Under. We are averaging 3-5 shooting deaths a week now, and we have gun laws – suppose to anyway.

    Most shootings are drug related, but they are hand guns, not machine or repetitive fire firearms that are used.

  6. lifeontour says:

    No celebration here. The point is, what people believe to be true, due to liberal propaganda, versus the truth. All sides have an agenda but use the facts to substantiate your views instead of lies.
