I had to log in.

Sat. 85 Sun. 89

My expensive upper dentures that clip onto implants now all of a sudden hurt my gums badly. This is new. They did clip onto 4 implants and two started to hurt and came out so now only two implants plus I have a couple of teeth that helps hold them in.

I have never heard of anyone who had trouble with implants.


Fortunately I have my old dentures that are made different and don’t hurt so I can eat and look decent to go to church or anywhere. They don’t fasten on to the implants.


I read on the internet that Ford has a 2018 F-450 Super Duty Limited pickup that if you get every option costs $94,445. I guess a lot of luxury trucks cost $60,000 or more.

V8, sorry you are having so much trouble with those teeth.  My sister in Florida is having trouble too.  She lives in an assisted living place and doesn't have a lot of disposable income.  I helped her get an upper plate and a lower partial about a year ago.  She only had 4 real teeth left connected to the partial.  Nowl those teeth have gone bad and will have to be removed.  Now I'm told that they will have to make a new upper and lower plate.  Seems like there is no end to this.

I went to see another dermatologist this week for a second opinion on my dermatitus which I have been fighting for months.  He told me that what I have will not go away and I would just have to live with it.  Not exactly what I wanted to hear but at least it's not life threatening.  For now, I am doing everything the original doctor prescribed and maintaining the status quo but no cure.

A friend of mine just turned over his train collection to someone who will sell for him.  I've given some thought to it myself.

I haven't been on the coffee pot lately so I'm sorry for the birthdays I missed and any other serious problems.  My own birthday is coming up on October 13th.  I am going on a train ride October 14th on some private cars behind Amtrak about 250 miles up the California Coast and back to celebrate a friends railroad retirement.  That will be my birthday present too.

Have a good week end.

Evening all!

Beautiful day today. Low 80's and humidity down.

Spent the day yesterday at the big monthly flea market in Canton TX. Walked a lot and ate junk food. Looked for tools but not anything good this time. Was an overcast day with temps in the high 70's.

Have to put off the State Fair excursion until next week. Daughter is bringing her boyfriend for dinner tomorrow so we can not load up on junk food all day at the fair.

Went with friends/neighbors this evening to a new bar/restaurant near downtown. It is a BBQ place with a big outdoor patio. It is called Ferris Wheelers and they have an antique traveling carny style Ferris Wheel on the patio. I was talking to one of the owners and he said he found it on EBay in New Mexico. It is a 1938 model and classic cable drive. They can't run it yet as they are waiting on permits and a certified mechanic to re-adjust the drive cable after some clutch repairs. Very cool!

Ray - good to hear from you! Neat trip you have planned for your bdaycool!

Dennis - sorry about the dentures. Hope you can get it resolved Soon.

As Banks said, I have my tics to BWI for York! 

Regards, Roy

Morning guys,

Cold here guys, the heat is on in the house. It will get up to 70 later today but in the low 40s now.

We could sure use some rain. Darn dust everywhere here.

Yesterday I went over to the Ritchie Bros. auction site to walk the equipment with Brian and Jim. Slim pickings at the auction site, I did not see anything I wanted then we got back Jim and I mounted the snow plow carriage on the ranger. Later in the day I did the power from the battery to the plow. Today maybe I will plug the plow on and see if it all works as it should.

Dennis, why I have done everything I can to keep my God given teeth all my life. Hope you get it figured out.

A F-450 Super Duty Limited is a lot of truck but that is almost 4 times what I paid for my first house. Surprise
