Once again we made a run to Atlantic for Butch to see the dentist. I thought, "Great, This isn't going to be any big deal." "Perhaps we can get some visiting in."
On about Tuesday or Wednesday, Butch asked me to look in his mouth because it felt like there was something in there that shouldn't be. He was right. There was a piece of gold perhaps connected to a piece of tooth in the hole created by the removal of the tooth and root. So we thought perhaps it would work its way out. Along about Thursday he talked me into trying to pull it out. He kept closing his mouth and I could not get a grip on it. So Friday morning we call and they tell us to come in. It was almost if not completely as traumatic as the first go round. He was in severe pain and spitting all the way home. Once home and with a couple of pain pills in him he quickly rebounded to reasonably good health.
So my Atlantic area friends- Maybe next time?
Weather and Birds
We have had a streak of unseasonably warm weather- in the 90's and very little rain. So Butch has been keeping the birdbath filled with fresh water and the birds are very grateful.
We have several Doves and they seem young. They are a beautiful bird. Difficult to photograph as they seem to be skittish and fighting each other most of the time.
Todays Walk on the trail.
I would prefer to ride but the walnuts are a problem. I'm thinking I might do a bike run with the sole purpose of clearing the trail of walnuts. I keep hoping someone else will think of it and beat me to it.
Today's sightings on the trail consisted of 4 bikers, 4 deer, 2 cats and three Bob-White Quail. I had my phone with me because it is easy so the pics are less than ideal. The Quail are not at all spooked as I walked beside them for quite a ways. That and now they are in town, less than a 1/2 block from the elementary school.

History and story of My Favorite Chair
Years ago when we were first taking a stab at the full-timing lifestyle I bought a chair at a furniture store in Lees Summit MO. I loved the chair. It fits me, and is perhaps the most comfortable chair I have ever had. It is made by BEST. Yes, the name of the chair is BEST.
After several years use it became worn and shabby looking. It was still comfy as all get out but did not look the best. So we went on a search for a new BEST chair and we found them at Nebraska Furniture Mart. We were looking to buy 3, one new one for the house and two new ones for the motorhome. They are not the same chair. My original chair sits in the 3 season room and every time I would sit in it I was once again reminded of how comfortable it was. It is a far cry from the 3 others we have. So I decided to have it recovered. I had a hard time finding someone to do it but finally found Pam Chance in Jamaica Iowa.
Chance Upholstery, Jamaica Iowa 515-314-0290 It is done and we now have the chair back in the 3 season room looking very fine and feeling wonderful. It has picked up and off odor from her shop and I am working on getting rid of that but I am most happy with the chair and Pam's work.
And there you have it for now.
