Take that, Mark. D.

I woke up bright and early and had the Zoom done. My teeth aren't bright white, but there is a definite improvement and they said it would continue to improve. We took before and after pictures but I haven't been able to download them for some reason. I will post them as soon as I figure it out.

The Big Man was home today so we spent a good bit of time outside. The Big Man did some yard work, although it was more like weed control. It is so dry here. The grass is brown and crunchy but the weeds are lush and green. Can you explain why that is? There is talk of scattered thunderstorms soon, but we will need much more than that.

Tomorrow MK and I are going to have a night on the town. Our little city is having "Movie in the Park" tomorrow night. So, I guess we'll take chairs or a blanket and bug repellent and spend some time with our neighbors.

I have really been looking for ways to get more involved in the community. I seem to have taken a break since I've been home with T. Willy. I try to think, if I left this town today, what mark would I leave? I'm afraid it wouldn't be much of one. I run into some former students from time to time and they still remember some things I taught them, more about life than academic, I suspect. So that is a little mark. But I'm looking for a way to do more. I'll let you know.

Have a great day!

I can't wait to see the pictures!!

The movie night tomorrow night sounds like a great time. A farm in a near by county has a family movie festival every year. I really want to take the boys this year.

That is so cool about your teeth. I've wanted to do that for awhile. I'm anxious to hear if you think it's worth it or not!

I'm sure you've left more of a mark than you realize...
