Looks pretty good doesn’t he!! Randy, the owner and creator of beautiful hats at Law Dog Hat Company in Billings custom made this beautiful hat for Michael—hats come in various grades of felt—good hats are made with beaver felt. The higher the percentage of beaver felt, the better the hat and the more it costs. We ordered a 7X beaver felt hat for Michael—when he got there to pick up the hat, Randy had made the hat in 10X beaver!! Randy told Michael we were such good customers, he upgraded us! That’s the right kind of customer service!!
I was a busy woman today—first stop was the dentist. Remember when I went to the rip-off dentist in Corpus Christi—they told me I had a failed root canal and would need the tooth pulled and either a bridge or an implant—all to the tune of many, many $$$$$!!! This dentist pointed out to me on the x-ray a darkish area around the base of the root canal. The tooth was not bothering me and had never bothered me. I elected not to have the work done in that office.
Today I went to a dentist I have seen 2-3 times before. They use digital x-rays and I didn’t say a word about the other dentist in Corpus Christi. When the x-rays were all up there in front of the hygienist and myself I said, “do you see anything wrong with that tooth?” pointing to the one in question. We both could see the darkish area but she pulled up my previous x-rays from 2010 and the darkish area was there then!!!!! The dentist said, “if it isn’t bothering you we aren’t in the business of extracting teeth just to be extracting teeth!” AHHHHHH That was the good news about this dental office. The bad news was they charged me $468 to clean and x-ray my teeth!!!
Lunch at Jake’s and a quick Wal Mart stop before heading off to get a much needed and wanted haircut. I am way picky about my hair and Corpus Christi just didn’t seem to provide me with any (I tried four different hairdressers!!) decent hair cutting skills! The young woman who cuts my hair has been doing it for about 12 years—she is excellent and I hope she continues to cut hair for a long time to come!
Costco was our last stop. Remember the printer fight I was having last week—our HP printer worked one day and the next decided not to print. I uninstalled and re-installed probably four times getting the stupid thing to finally print but it still would not perform some functions such as scan to email or computer. Rather than waste any more time on this printer (which was only seven months old) we took it back to Costco today and got a full refund—I love Costco. Rather than buy another HP printer we opted to purchase a Canon—we will see how it performs! Sure hope the set-up is easier than the HP!
We stopped at Nat’s and Michael got his riding lawn mower going again—doesn’t the thought of a 91 year old man mowing his own grass strike fear into your hearts??? It does mine!! Ms. Emmi got to go along today—it was another VERY windy, cold, rainy day—not very spring like at all!
