08.16.07

It's mainly a quiet battle. It's fought daily. We fight and win by acting in a spiritual way. We fight and win every time we help a friend, go to meetings, or read about how to improve our lives We move slowly but always forward. Rushing will only tire us out. Our battle will go on for life. We are quiet fighters, but we're strong, for we do not fight alone. And we know what waits for us if we lose. ~Keep It Simple
Today I am grateful...
  • to have slept soundly and to wake to the sound of rain
  • that I woke even though my alarm clock did not go off
  • that I have an appointment in an hour with the oral surgeon to discuss removing my remaining three wisdom teeth
  • that I will not become stupid having my wisdom teeth removed
  • that Bunny has learned to follow me out underneath the umbrella and pee in the rain

We did not all come over on the same ship, but we were all in the same boat. ~Bernard M. Baruch

Dear Scott,

I hope your appt. goes well.

I don't know who told you that you become dumb without your "wisdom Teeth," but, they lied to you.

I can't ascertain whether you just left a "1" out of the date or you are repeating that days post. See, I haven't had my wisdom teeth for a long time.

Love you

Oops. Was in a hurry. Thanks.

Bunny apparently has his wisdom teeth since he follows you under the umbrella. Such a smart fellow.

I had one of mine removed years ago and I'm wiser... But I think that's because I'm old...

SCOTT... yup, you're still here! Thank God!
I used to be the first one to comment to you, but I've been a slacker in my blog stalking!
I only ever had three wisdom teeth, does that mean I am less dumb than someone who had all four removed? LOL
Bunny is so cute (for a dog, LOL)

good for Bunny! Yea I hope that the oral surgeon thing goes well for you!

I love to wake up to rain, especially if my bedroom window is open enough to hear and smell it.
