This post is a total ramble.
This has been an Odd week. Oddly busy! Oddly creative!
Monday I was busy unpacking the stuff we took on our short weekend trip for the driving lesson, and working on the cow.
Tuesday the new washer was delivered and I had to catch up on the wash and ship the cow.
Wednesday I went to the dentist for a little problem, and found out my little problem was an abscess on an old root canal and crowned tooth. I had lost too much bone to save it.
Thursday I had the tooth pulled and the prep and placement of a temporary bridge. I will get the permanent bridge in February. Many $$$ :~(
The really odd thing is that I have no pain. Seems the placement of the temporary bridge has kept the hole from the extraction from getting any air or from bleeding. I have a great dentist. He cut the tooth in half so it would come out easier.
Today I worked on a buffalo sculpture and at the same time did some experiments with a new way of making the moose antlers. I am very excited because I think I have finally solved a big problem that has been dogging me for years.
A major break thru that will make the antlers lighter and stronger than before. It makes the prospect of making and selling moose when we are on the road possible!
I tried a new application for a very old material. Something I thought of in a "light bulb" moment in the middle of the night!
Maybe when the dentist pulled my tooth he unblocked a creative force.
The hard part is I won't really be able to follow up with it until the end of January. Too many other things to do!
Unless I take the experiments along.
Maybe I will.
Where better to see if something will work on the road, than on the road!
