Yes Sir, May I Have Another? 

This was the week of June 26th.

To say it was an eventful week would be an understatement. So many issues collided I can’t exactly put them in order. But I can come reasonably close.

 I won’t bore you with all the gory details. Suffice it to say I had a root canal and crown buildup, neither of which went smoothly. I burned my arm while making pizza in the oven. My wife twisted her knee which already needs replaced due to her bone on bone problem with both knees. 

 The lights in our house would flicker every night around 9pm we had the power company out one night and they couldn’t find a problem. Then we lost our water. Turns out our well pump was going bad, and after the drilling company pulled the pump all 150 feet out of the well they found much of the wiring had rubbed away and also needed replaced. The bad wiring was causing the pump to pull in extra amps which made the lights flicker until it just gave up completely.

Early in the morning Clary who is not allowed on the bed, jumped on the bed so she could get a better vantage point to make a flying leap at Quinn. Which wouldn’t be horrible but she used me as a launching pad.

But it’s not all bad.

I have a scar on my arm from the burn which I can play with when bored. My mouth is still sensitive but I’m learning to chew on both sides of my mouth once again. Soon I’ll have another crown to add to the collection.
Denyce is gaining strength in her other leg and has mastered the art of the ‘hobble’. 
We experienced what it must have been like back at the turn of the century living for a few hours like barbarians without running water. And we only paid 1200 dollars for the experience. A deal at half the cost! 
I have two wonderful scars going down my inner thigh with which to remember Clary.
