Crown Me

Yucca like a beacon
I had to cut our morning hike short today because of a 10:00 a.m. appointment at the dentist's office; I was going in to try for a second time to get a permanent crown on an upper molar.  The first one wasn't made properly so I had to get another one made.  For three weeks I wore a temporary crown, went in to get the new one only to be told of the imperfection in the first new permanent crown.  The dentist made a new impression for the new crown and to fashion a second temporary crown, which I wore for two weeks more.  I now have a brand new crown installed, and I feel very much like a king.
