Saturday Moove

Moving this week into the new place. There are boxes everywhere but Leslie is doing an amazing job and having a mother-in-law here who is an interior designer is making for some fun times of pretty colors. I'll get some pictures up this week of the one room with no boxes, our living room. The more time I spend in this place I feel like God has been wrapping things up in bows and giving us so many things to enjoy over these last two weeks. It's been rich and exhausting and also exhausting.

I got excited when I saw this today. How can that number for a gallon of gas elicit such a reaction? I guess I'm glad it is not 3.89 and that St. Louis is below the national average but I was still shocked at my reaction. I have what I think is a coherent explanation of what is causing oil to be so expensive for us right now that I know you will not here from your Presidential candidates. I'll post that tomorrow and you see what you think. Also, I think I have figured out women. It's going to be a good week people.

Saturday Groove

Back by semi-popular demand, the ukulele guy. Flaminco style. Feel the passion from the mini-guitar.

Saturday Groove

This man has a dear place in my heart because the first time I saw him live changed how I had seen a guitar played before. I didn't know anything about alternate tunings and really had not seen anyone command his instrument before until Tommy. He's Australian and I love his musicianship and the beauty of the songs he composes. It's a good morning groove for this Saturday.

Genetics trump Hygene

The last time I had visited the dentist this guy was being considered for president of the United States. As you do the math in your head then you realize that it had been far to long since I had been to the dentist. I was honestly prepared for the worse new possible. I dreamed of and considered how I would handle the pain of some one drilling into my tooth and my wisdom teeth being cut from my head. My teeth would hurt often and gums bleed so I thought the dentist was going to be shocked.

About three minutes into the process of my hygienist cleaning my teeth she said "You have good teeth." Really? Turns out that the gift of my teeth handed down from my family have trumped all the years of neglect of cleaning my teeth.

In the fourth minute of cleaning she said, "We can't do this all at once." I had to have two cleanings to get my teeth clean. I was prepared by my friend Peter for this reality as he had the same experience and he wore out his hygienist and she could go no further.

Biblically, gaps appeared where they had not in years. The glory of the whole trip was to be praised by more than one person about how good my teeth are and to find out I did not have a single cavity.

So I got a new and powered tooth brush out of the whole deal and my teeth fell awesome. I'm glad my awesome genes fought back 15 years of neglect but I don't plan on going another 15 with my next visit.
