What a mess in Japan—and some places along the west coast of North America. We have fond memories of overnighting in Crescent City, staying on the opposite side of the road from the harbor now reported as devastated.
Had a root canal today, which I wouldn’t mention except that this fella used a variety of new technologies which, knock on wood, have made it less traumatic than the previous ones I’ve had (moderately crappy teeth; thank you, Mom). I’m attributing my okay-ness to him, because the tooth was holding a goodly amount of infection—so that he called it “hot” and “angry.” Not what you want to hear about your teeth. Loving this getting old stuff…ha!
