Yes, dear one; however, you are such a dear, you may be mistaken for a deer.

Where's The Tooth Fairy?

Remember long ago and far away when losing a tooth meant a visit by the tooth fairy? As an adult the tooth fairy takes delight in removing as much cash as possible from one's checking account. Must be how she finances all those kids. 

You tell where this is going...

We sure needed some of these..........

Dr. Steve got our culprits rounded up............ well, thank goodness it didn't involved the whole cast of characters........

The upper fourth tooth from the right is "#13"--- an unlucky 13 for Don and ALSO for Sherri. Don had his pulled on Monday and I had mine extracted on Friday. How's that for a coincidence? 

Don's tooth had been bugging him for a long time and after trying the alternatives his problem was resolved on Monday. "I feel your pain, hon. No, really I do." I laughed and said it must be sympathetic. Well, it got worse and by Thursday I was headed to see Dr. Steve and an x-ray revealed an infected tooth.  A referral to have a root canal up at Eau Claire was arranged. Unfortunately, I'm not that patient, and a total wuss with dental pain so, after yet another sleepless night, I pretty much begged to have it removed. Friday morning..... relief!!! By the time we both get done with all the antibiotics I hope we can FINALLY start feeing better.

Split Rock Lighthouse Shade

Mr. Valley waited a long time for me to get this done. The depiction of the Split Rock Lighthouse on Lake Superior, WI, will be cozying up his den and joining his lighthouse collection.

Happy Birthday, Mom!

Thank you, Maggie and Don, and friends! Yesterday was a gorgeous 50 degree sunny November day. Which is unusual for my "special day"!

Today's clouds, chill and soon to arrive snow flurries, remind us all that our glorious fall weather is almost over.

The horses had to stay home and play with me yesterday, but this morning Cerra was busily untying the chain on the gate so I took her hint. Their other pasture actually has some grass left to graze and provides a little variety to their day. They sure got into a routine over summer and won't like it when they can't go "out to eat".
