For several days I had a sore spot between a couple of teeth and my husband prodded me to call the dentist. I was able to get a squeeze-in appointment yesterday. He found nothing wrong other than some inflammation & bleeding, no apparent infection or plaque build-up or tooth problem. Perhaps I stuck myself with one of those lazy-person's flossers (those little fuzzy toothpick thingies). He flossed some Neosporin into the spot--not exactly tasty, but it does feel better today. He praised me for taking extra vitamin C to help heal--he said he would've suggested that if I hadn't brought it up.Luckily yesterday they squeezed me in before meeting friends to see Les Mis and go out to dinner. Not to mention that the dental office is right by one of the local Publix markets where I was planning to shop anyway on Wednesday, senior discount day, for the automatic 5% off (plus I had coupons and saved about 10%--thank you, Donna, for telling me about Publix sr discount day!). Now this morning a crown popped off while eating breakfast! (poached egg on 1/2 of a gluten-free English muffin)And today they can once again fit me in, at 9:30 with the doc's junior partner. That's very good because we have plans this afternoon as well. My husband's a member of the Sigma Xi society ("Sigma Zy"), to which he was appointed by MIT faculty as a grad student for excellence in research. SX is hosting a tour of the South Carolina Boeing factory this afternoon, so we signed up. (Any Sigma Xi members here?)http://www.sigmaxi.org/about/overview/index.shtmlSpeaking of what we're up to, Monday we had a funeral (my father's cousin was 100 years old, so a celebration of an exceptional life rather than a sad occasion), Wed dinner & a movie, Thurs, Boeing, Fri art exhibit opening reception at the college, Sat guided nature walk at a county park we've only been to once before. Sun, Mom;s birthday dinner at my house. Retirement--I love it!Obit of my father's cousin, by all accounts the most successful member of our family ever (successful Navy man, businessman, college president, philanthropist--and lifelong Democrat):http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/charleston/obituary.aspx?pa...
