Waimea Valley, Oahu.
An elderly friend of mine was married to an oral surgeon. Though he made his living by extracting people’s teeth, he always told us to “hang on to your teeth!” Dentures make a poor substitute for real teeth and pose all kinds of problems, such as food particles getting caught under one’s dentures. And dental implants are very expensive, as well. So, yeah, hang on to the teeth you have.
I keep telling David to hang on to his knees. Despite his arthritis, he is still able to walk without a cane or a walker. Why does he want replacement surgery on his knees and hips? Why push his luck? One of those four surgeries is bound to land him in a wheel chair. So, hang on to your knees!
On a happier note, Lisa will be arriving tomorrow for her winter break in Hawaii. We are looking forward to having a pleasant Christmas lunch at the Willows. We love the ambiance at the Willows. It’s open-air with a beautiful view of the pond and plants. The food is wonderful, too, with a huge international buffet.
It will be nice to celebrate the holidays with my family.
