Both of the removed wisdoms have been in my lower jaw. The two in my upper jaw are looking like they are going to stay put. As the oral surgeon said of them, “They are asleep.”
I ought to write a letter.
Some Winter We’re Having, Eh?
This has been quite a pain in the ass winter so far. The snow hasn’t been a big problem, even though we do have quite a bit piling up. It’s really been the extreme cold we’ve been experiencing that has put this winter high on the misery scale. As I write this, we await the probable announcement that school will be cancelled again for Monday. This will be the fourth day this school year that classes were called on account of cold.
Hayden and his classmates might be happy to stay home, but it looks very possible that one or two make-up days will be added at the end of the school year.
During last week’s music show I played a song from this movie. I lamented that I had not seen this film, a favorite from my childhood, for many years and that it’s not available on Netflix. Well, never fear! You can watch the entire film on YouTube.
It stars Burt Reynolds as a charming, gas station robbing, big talking con man who hooks up with a struggling country music band called the Dixie Dancekings. Somehow, he takes them under his wing in order to get them to stardom and the Grand Ole Opry stage. Art Carney plays very pious, bible quoting (I guess that makes him a con man, too), lawman on WW’s trail.
Not the greatest film ever made, it still has its charms. And that’s country music’s gentle giant Don Williams as the Dancekings’ bass player.
