3/7/10 This will be a quick update because we are having company for dinner and I have to help prep it. Ron & Carol Leonard have graciously allowed us (and Mike & Marilyn) to stay here on their lot while we all get our business taken care of so we have been here for a week. Of course, we have been having some social activities, and also have squeezed in some visits with RV friends who are here for a while.
Yes, Elaine managed to get in to have the beginning phase of her dental implant done in Algodones. When we arrived here and met Ron & Carol's friends and neighbors, Linda & Ray, we learned that Linda had recently had a very good dental implant experience with Dr. Emmanuel Cordova. So Monday we went to his office and spent most of the afternoon waiting to get in for an assessment. He has a very modern office with the latest computer imaging equipment for x-rays, so they did that and determined what Elaine needed to have done, quoted a price, and set up an appointment for Tuesday. That day she spent 3 hours in his chair while he removed the remaining root of the tooth that broke and installed a titanium post and a temporary tooth. Now she is taking antibiotics and waiting for it to heal. She wasn't supposed to return to his office until the 15th but yesterday her tooth became loose, so tomorrow we will go back for him to stabalize it.
Our plan is to head for southern California once she has been cleared by the dentist on the 15th. Until then, we will be leaving Ron & Carol's Tuesday and move out to Mittrey Lake with Mike and Marilyn. Some friends we haven't had time to see will be coming out to visit, hopefully. Tomorrow night we will be having dinner at Rick & Denice Osborn's, some cruise friends who live near here.
Friday was Marilyn's birthday so we went out for dinner with them, Carol & Ron joined us, and we all had a great time.
Then we had cake and ice cream in Marilyn & Mike's rig and the neighboring couples joined us. Here is a cute picture of Ron & Carol we took at that event:
Our friend, Frank, who worked with us at Lake Kachess several summers ago, also lives near here, so we went walking with him and several of his friends one day. Here is a picture of the 3 of us:
Padraic & Willie Ley, from the Boomer group are also here so one day Padraic came to visit and it was great to catch up on their doings, since we haven't seen him for several years. He also helped us with our computers. THANKS Padraic!! (I forgot to take his picture - too bad cause he is a cutie).
It is raining heavily today and we are trying to catch up on inside stuff. Check back with us in a week or so for another report.
