    Legs are toast, a ride seems like too much effort so might take the imaginary dog for a walk.
    WFH later while most people will be out enjoying the sunshine.

    Morning all. El Scorchio started already. More outside DIY today but with sun cream today. Neck currently resembles ripe tomato after yesterday. Ride out at some stage.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning all, another sunny day in paradise. Just arrived at the dentist for a filling. Then home to wait for fork to turn up for the dolce.

    Dentist wore the full alien-autopsy suit. I had to wear a mask then remove it, then put it on. Way over the top and probably not helping. Made it home but feel like censored after the injection and filling. Opted for the economy filling rather than the spendy white filling.

    I will probably be spending a lot of time at the dentist over the next 6 to 8 months. Bollox.

    Meanwhile in the shadow of the Col de la Smithy Hill, it's cloudy but warmish.
    Yesterday's (boyhood revisited) sillyness on the new steed has left me a tad flat this morning. Heaps to do, no energy to do it.

    Laters.

    And I'll raise you lot 2 implants and a filling...

    Warm day but I'll be inside for most of it turning on my little hamster wheel. Too hot to run anyway. There's cold cider in the fridge for later though.

    Systemic bone infection for 3 years and 6 months plus suppressed immune system. That's the cards I was dealt.
    Although the bone infection was caused by a post operative handling error after hip replacement No.2 and could have been avoided. Makes me a little pi$$ed off really.

    I could crowd fund it? But that sort of thing doesn't half rock my boat when people want to others to fund their wild adventure in the cause of charity (and self aggrandisement).

    I had the metal screw things put into my jaw this week and have to stick to soft-ish food while the bone grows around them, though I can cheat as I can chew OK on my right side.

    Seriously, good luck with that.

    Ouch and YUK, I'll stick to trying to hang onto mine a bit longer. Luckily only one dodgy tooth over covid and that's been temp patched, revisit to do properly when things back to normal apparently. Luckily only real grief I've ever had was an impact damaged one which was crowned and all 4 wisdom teeth pulled by a Russian weight lifter dentist. He wouldn't admit defeat and send me to hospital to do to of them, as badly impacted. Pinno if it's an error from hip op can't you sue them for damages. Where there's blame there's a claim.

    I have no decay. I have had teeth come out that are near perfect. The bone infection caused gum recession.

    Cheers for the sentiments guys. Perhaps i'll keep you posted with some gory details.
    The alternative route is secured dentures. Eeek.

    implant holiday in india? though the virus complicates things now

    i did once have pieces of a broken tooth slowly making their way out through the side of the gum,, no implant as things were a bit crowded, technology moved on and eventually all the others got moved to close the gap and tidy things up

    just had a 3-4 hour bask, scorchio del diablo, shame it'll be over by tomorrow

    Eyup.

    WFH today, but about to wrap up. Bottle of ale and Rouleur on the balcony, pretend I'm somewhere else at a different time.

    Already finished here - clouded over about an hour ago and just had a rain shower.
    Still hot though.
    Hopefully all the tourists stuck in the traffic jams on the way here are now realising their mistake.

    Productive day today albeit mostly chained to my desk.

    I went for the West End option and so far he seems to have done a damn good job. I had a 1 tooth gap in my back teeth and was hoping the other teeth would close the gap but then an adjacent one went, so one of the implants will be 2 for the price of 1.

    Dentures - just say no. Unless you want us to laugh at you.

    Beer o'clock here and temp has dropped from 36 to a more comfortable 24 following a bit of a storm, only downside is the mutts a quivering wreck. For some stupid reason I'm doing an extra shift tomorrow, but got a wk off after that.

    Muggy day here followed by a thunderstorm and now a thick Haar has rolled in.
    Spent most of the day doing chores.
    I even managed to true Shorty's front wheel. It's been a long time since I did that. Modern hoops an all.
