Eyes and teeth, that is.

This is a story of two different professional offices.

I recently had an appointment with my opthamologist, who, after checking my eyes, wrote me a new prescription.  I took that to the oculist, who said they would be ready the following week.  That would have been last week!  So yesterday afternoon I called to check.  “Call you back in 20 minutes,” I was told.  Haven’t heard yet.

On the other hand ...
Some of you may have been following the tale of my teeth, from the yanking out of five, to new impressions, et al.  Yesterday I was back at the dentist for the last fitting before the denture went back to the lab for the final acrylic setting.  The receptionist said she would call me that evening as soon as the lab told her when the denture would be ready.  Sure enough, shortly after 5 p.m. that day she called to say the denture would be ready next Wednesday, and she gave me a time to come in for it.  And I have no doubt it will be ready.


And now I have an answer on my glasses.  I will pick them up on Thursday morning.

Fun --


Dear God: Why do humans smell the flowers, but seldom, if ever, smell one another?

Dear God: When we get to heaven, can we sit on your couch? - Or is it still the same old story?

Dear God: Why are there cars named after the jaguar, the cougar, the mustang, the colt, the stingray, and the rabbit, but not ONE named for a dog? How often do you see a cougar riding around?  We do love a nice ride!  Would it be so hard to rename the "Chrysler Eagle" the "Chrysler Beagle"?

Dear God: If a dog barks his head off in the forest and no human hears him, is he still a bad dog?

Dear God: We dogs can understand human verbal instructions, hand signals, whistles, horns, clickers, beepers, scent ID's, electromagnetic energy fields, and Frisbee flight paths. What do humans understand?

Dear God: Are there mailmen in Heaven?  If there are, will I have to apologize?
