13th Day, 12th Month of Year 2013 and still counting..

Just haven't felt like blogging for quite some time now.  I was going to try to write on here several days ago on our 48th Anniversary (Dec 10th). I told Kelly we had talked about getting rid of the really old dark green recliner and replacing it with another Lazy-Boy rocker recliner like the one Dwight bought right before I came home from he hospital.  I have almost worn it out since I'm in it all the time now. The latest little "adventure" I've been having is a bad tooth that at times hurts so bad, I literally try to loosen and pull it with my fingers.  Long story short, abscess under the tooth with suspected root fracture. The first antibiotic they put me on did nothing so I am now on a mega antibiotic guaranteed to upset my stomach but should take care of the infection.  I've been referred to an Endodontic Specialist on December 24th to see if something can be done to save the tooth. We had a nice time at the coast the end of last month.  It was nice being with Tony, Jen and the kids.
Tony and Dwight shucked these steamed oysters for a long time and I don't think there were any left over. We hated that Douglas couldn't come down (work) but Jessie and Samantha seemed to enjoy it. We were so happy that Kelly flew up and we all rode down together this time. Even though she had to get to the airport early and then sit on the runway for an hour before even getting in the air, it took her almost as long as it would to have driven it but I still felt better about her flying - especially that weekend.  As busy as it was to fly -it was still better than her being on the highway during one of the most traveled weekends of the year. Marlan picked me up and we went to the movies early today.  We saw - The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. It was excellent except for the ending - there was NO ending. Just like the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, it is to be continued - NEXT year! Arghhh!
 Richard Armitage played the part of Thorin, the Dwarf King and he was gorgeous!!!! It is funny that he plays a dwarf given that he is 6'2" tall.  I was happy to see that Orlando Bloom returned in his role as Legolas, one of the Elves even though he looked so different I kept questioning if it was really him. As Marlan pointed out, he was very young in the last one and has filled out (nicely I might add) now that he is older.  It is always nice to go with Marlan to the movies - but especially these since she has read all the books and can explain a lot about the characters to me. I told her to let me borrow them so I can get caught up. The special effects are really good in this movie. The pictures of the lovely countryside make me want to go back for another visit. Oh well - to be rich - right?  Dwight, JT, Steve and Boyd are having a fish-fry over at Boyd's tonight for supper. Dwight told me today the five of them went in together and purchased lottery tickets to the $400 millions plus lottery. I can only hope we don't win since it would probably destroy our lives. I just don't believe things like that improve people's lives - not to mention it is gambling which I don't believe in either.  So if my kids read this, don't get excited and I'm not happy about it. LOLOLOL When Marlan brought me home, I stood her in front of my refrigerator that is covered with pictures and pointed out to her that 99% of them are of my family and her family with a few odd ones of some of my friend's children. She smiled.  Yeah - we are family - have been for many, many years now.
I had to snap this picture of Miya and Dwight taking a nap. Look at her little arm laying up on his chest, neck and pillow. She really does love her Daddy. He would kill me if he knew I put this picture on here so Mum's the word guys.  That means Douglas too if he reads it.  Maybe next time I write on here, I will have something interesting to write about. Until then - later..
