Ouch: root canal; but it could be worse!

Hi gang.

I spent Friday to Tuesday either going to, being in, or returning from the Sierra. You can see some photos over at Pyro. It looks as if, by popular demand, I'll post some more, and some commentary, next week (DV).

So I got back Tuesday night. Then Wednesday morning got up while you all slept, left for work, went straight from work to spend another ~2 hours, 45 minutes in the dentist's chair as he finished a root canal over which he'd labored for about 2.5 hours the week before last. Yikes. But at least he's done.

Of course, it could have been worse!

Consider this picture from the Eastern California Museum in Independence, California. Josiah and I visited it after church Sunday. This picture speaks for itself (click for enlargement on it and the other):

And here is a closeup of the items in question:

The science of dentistry has advanced considerably since the first part of the last century, thank God! thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
Psalm 81:10b KJV
