Went to the dentist ...

Yep ... I had a call last week to reconfirm that me and my Mom were coming in today ... I had to tell them that they were getting one, but the other was no longer available for dental visits ... (sigh) ... for the past several years I'd been "doubling up" with my Mom on appointments there as she needed me to get her up there and back, so it just made sense for me to get my teeth done at the same time. Needless to say, there was a lot of absence and sadness in the air.

Speaking of air ... I've been trying to find some small, yet powerful, fans to blow stink off the kitty's litter box and out the vent. We had a set-up like that when we had Nikki, but The Wife tossed the old fans a while back. I'd found a fan that looked like it would work via Amazon, but the company was wanting a lot for shipping two units. I'd been poking aorund various hardware stores here looking for something similar, with no luck, so today I went over to the Home Depot near my dentist (after stopping across the street for some muy yummy steak tacos) to see what they had, which was nothing in the size I was looking for (about 9"). I then figured that since I was going to be starting up a fresh $1.75 on the bus/el, that I might as well run downtown and see what I could find. So, I grabbed the Brown Line at Diversey, switched to the Red Line at Fullerton and ran down to the Loop Sears store. They, too, had nothing small. I then popped into the big new Walgreens (across from Block 37) and, while they had small fans, they all looked "fragile" and were as much as the 3-speed wall-mountable Honeywell fans I'd found on line. So, I hopped on the 36 bus and buzzed back home. I guess I'll get the ones from Amazon after all. Today, however, was a wonderful day for running aorund ... being in the upper 70's, clear, and with a nice breeze.

Oh, yeah ... not that anybody cares ... but the dentist told me that my teeth look great, but (as usual) there's a bit of bleeding gums ... {dude! if your gal hadn't been poking at them with sharp metal things for the past 15 minutes, they wouldn't BE bleeding!} ... same as it ever was.
