Busy Day!

We both had dental appointments first thing.  I went first, and then Mary followed.  My crown did not fit so I have to return next week.  Mary’s adjustment went fine!

Finally, she can’t talk!

The dental office had little versions of dentists; Dad, Uncle, and Daghter! Too cute!


On our way home we stopped at Rockwell’s for breakfast!  It’s a local establishment and they have great food.  I needed my morning coffee.

Their omelets are terrific.

We decorated and got most of everything done.  Mary finally found her glasses.  She loves the color!

Who is this masked person?

I was on repair duty as every year we open a triage center and get out the batteries and glue.  Today it was the pyramids that needed some attention!

Dr. Paul, at your service!

Mary put together the other pyramid as it did not need an intervention!.

What is the story behind the Christmas pyramids? The name Christmas pyramid came about because the Napoleonic campaign in Egypt at the end of the 18th century brought pictures of the pyramids back to Europe and eventually to the Ore Mountains, where they reminded the people of the mining capstans and also of the Christmas constructions.

The Pyramid builder at work.

It is beginning to take shape!  Every surface is covered and Scout is going crazy trying to figure out what to chew on first!  Just kidding, he doesn’t chew!

The cleaning people can come tomorrow.

Major surgery is underway!  Glue, tape, nails, thumbtacks…whatever it takes.  Mary made me put on my nurse’s uniform (complete with the short skirt).   I fooled her and put on my French maid’s costume instead; she was so busy in surgery she did not notice!

Repairs are sometimes frustrating.

We declared victory.  Christmas is finally here but we did NOT do the tree yet, perhaps this weekend!

No open surfaces are available!

We changed the lights to alternating green and red!  Love the Govee lighting system.

Easy to adjust from the iPhone!

We crashed after a couple of Hallmark Christmas movies!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
