I guess all that gelato finally caught up with me. I'm having a root canal done. Part One was this morning, and it went pretty well, though it was definitely not painless. My dentist is a very nice German woman. She speaks English very well, but with her assistants she speaks German. As the talked, I tried to translate in my head, using my college German. I wasn't very successful, but it provided a nice distraction from the pins being shoved down the roots of my teeth...

On a much happier note, Harry Truman's Excellent Adventure is one of the book club selections at DearReader.com. By the way, have I mentioned that the book would make a great Christmas gift?
