Where is the Tooth Fairy?

This is me a few days ago after having a broken molar extracted.  The oral surgeon said "it was a difficult extraction" and I believe him considering the pain and swelling I have been having.  The whole experience was surreal.  I was knocked out for the extraction which is not weird.  The weird part was that I have NO memories of the couple of hours after I came to.  I was told I had a conversation with the doctor then I rode in the car for two hours to Raleigh, NC, chatting the whole time.  I have no recollection of any of this.  I was given Versed, Propofol and Fentanyl by IV and the Propofol must be what did it.  It is not called 'Milk of Amnesia' for nothing.  The nurses there might have taken advantage of me and I wouldn't remember it.

It's finally coming down to the wire here.  It's one week until I load up the moving van and move my apartment belongings down to my NC home.  I have been anticipating this for months and I am ready to get it over with.

New Car

We just got my stepson his first car today.  It is a 1999 Ford F150 4X4 and fits his rural lifestyle to a T.  It was only $4100.00 which fit me to a T.

Red Right Returning

Red, right, returning for boaters means that when returning from sea you place the red bouy to your right, green to your left, to be in the channel.  Things are winding down for me as I'm getting ready to return to my NC home.  The physical move will be on Monday, February 27th so I am in a mad rush to get some things settled at the house and things packed and ready to go in my Baltimore apartment.   The stress of all this turmoil has really been affecting my photography lately but things will soon pick up when I get the move behind me.  I have lots of projects once I get moved so I am excited about getting started (solar panel system, garden, water catchment, chickens, etc).  I intend to get a semi-self sufficient homestead going so it should be fun.

Where is Winter?

This picture was taken one year ago.  This year it has been in the 50's, 60's and even 70's every day here in Baltimore.  Weird.

I sure wish I had this in my back yard.  It would make a great office, den or guest house.
