larry weekend, dentist

each year we have a party at our house in the country for the employees and their family from work
we do this during wildflower season especially bluebonnets so there is usually a lot of picture taking going on
many of the kids dont get out into the country very often
they get a chance to roam the pastures, fly kites, climb on stumps, go to the river and collect tadpoles, minnows, frogs
they put them in my small water ponds so i have ample number of fish and frogs in my ponds

last year one of the moms did face painting-that was a big hit with the kids
one year i saved paper from the clinic and we made paper airplanes which we sailed off the top deck
last year one of the employees husband brought his small bbq pit(if this was small would have liked to seen his big bbq pit)     he bbqed chicken ribs and sausage       the employees brought the side dishes it was good

of course all of the kids want to see the chickens and this year was disappointed
that larry the rooster was not around-he succumbed to the cycle of life

when we had the first annual party we decided to call it after larry as everyone liked to see him and because we talked about him a lot

thats larry weekend-see picutures

have to go to the dentist today      will have to start on the new crown journey
would rather have my prostate checked or have a colonoscopy than go to the dentist
promised my dentist a few years ago that i would do my twice a year visits and
keep my teeth well cared for
this was after an episode of needing a root canal after i neglected to come in for 2-3 years

dental care and good dentition is very important to your overall health
as the teeth fail your nutrition status may start failing

so if i gotta do it so should you-wheres that valium or xanax i saved for this visit
