Friday at Avenidas, in the one o’clock hour, our activities director had a new entertainment group. That’s ‘group’ as in two young sisters. One played a marimba type instrument, and the other played banjo, flute, and sang. Rather a good voice. One thing that was different was the different types of music they played -- calypso, Irish, Italian, Hawaiian, and one or two others that don’t come immediately to mind. But there was one other thing that happened really astounded me. One of the participants there is an older, (we’re all older) heavy set woman who has sat next to me a couple of times. Frankly, I don’t think she is ‘all there’ but many participants (including me?) are in that state. Anyway, when the sisters started doing Hawaiian music, this lady got up and was doing the hula. And I don’t mean that she was simply shaking her hips; she was doing all the hand motions that went with the song, and she was most graceful about it! At the end the singer gave her a big hug, and she received a big round of applause from the rest of us. All in all, an amazing performance!
Dental Update --
The other day I had a call from the dentist’s office filling me in (unintended pun) on What Happens Next. Which happens to be a visit with my dentist, where he will give me all the specific details of extractions, follow-ups, and the like. In addition they will take more impressions for the stay plate (I thought they’d already done that). That gadget with teeth is what I will wear (in my mouth; not on my head) while my mouth heals. Additionally, he will fill a couple of teeth -- not the ones coming out.
Then -- Oh Joy! -- an appointment will be made for me with the dental surgeon. Finally, a follow-up visit with my dentist to see how things are going. I thought they’d already be gone. More as things progress.
How about a bit of fun --
