Losing Time and the Giveaway Results

How does the time get away? It feels like I just posted the Star Trek post but that's already six days in the rear view mirror.

Patti Abbott won my giveaway for a copy of "Cut Short," by Leigh Russell. This is the first in her Geraldine Steel series. Patti, if you will send me your snail mail address to kainja at hotmail dot com, I'll get it in the mail to you pretty quickly.

Going into the dentist today to get my permanent crown put in to replace the temporary one. I sure hope that's the last dental stuff I need to do for a few years.

I finished my last read through of Wraith of Talera, then decided it wasn't the 'last' read through. I'm letting it sit a few days and will give it one more going over. I want it done and sent off so I can get into the next one, Gods of Talera. I've got a couple of short stories to do first, and an article on C. L. Moore.

The last couple of days I've been taking a needed break and just playing Skyrim and reading.

All right, enough. I promise a more substantial post in a couple of days.

Crowns are no fun. Hope it goes well.

Charles Gramlich said...

Keith, not fun.

Cloudia, it's sleeping?

Alex, me too. Thanks.

Chris said...

I find the summer sucks so much of my verve away, that time flies that much faster. Not my time of year. . . .

Prashant C. Trikannad said...

A permanent crown (I think we call it "cap" here) seems like heaven compared to the root canal that often precedes it. Good luck, Charles!

laughingwolf said...

nothing beats writing; a good read is a close second :)

ok... my animation stuff is a barrel of laffs... now'n again... once i get around to it ;)

i don't envy your tooth concerns...

Riot Kitty said...

I hope you are not in pain by the time you're reading this. And hope you don't have to go back for a long time!

Charles Gramlich said...

Chris, once you get away from the regular routine then it all comes down to the inner drive, and my drive seems to be fading fast.

Prashant, at least they haven't had to do the root canal, which is nice.

Riot kitty, was in pain last night. It's already feeling better today. I slept a lot last night.

Angie said...

Best of luck at the dentist.

One thing they don't tell you (or at least, my dentist didn't) is that crowns aren't as strong as your natural teeth. Be careful once you've got it. :/

Angie, with a healing implant post that's replacing a snapped off crown

jodi said...

Charles-I enjoy your personal updates. As an old dental assistant, patients used to ask us if they really needed to floss. We would tell them 'just floss the ones you want to keep'!

Charles Gramlich said...

Angie, thanks for the heads up. He didn't tell me that indeed.

Jodi, I have had a dentist tell me such a thing.

ivan said...

A substantial post nex time?

I'd say this one is substantial!

Charles Gramlich said...

Ivan, more like quick and dirty.

Bernard Lee DeLeo said...

The dentist... my arch enemy... I hate everything he does. :)

Charles Gramlich said...

Bernard, I'm no fan either. I guess they are not most people's favorite folks.

Snowbrush said...

Good luck with no more dental expenses. I find that the older I get, the worse they get. I've had two crowns and a root canal so far this year.

Wow. Thanks. Patti Abbott/4 Charles St?Grosse Pointe, MI.
I don't usually win things. Pretty cool.

Oscar said...

I have no idea what Skyrim is, but don't tell me about it. Enjoy the break, if possible.

the walking man said...

HARMLAND WAS EXCELLENT!!!!!!!

Charles Gramlich said...

Snowbrush, I sure hope not, but it would seem that would be the way of the future.

Patti, Cool. I will send the book off to you next week.

Oscar, video game.

Mark, thanks, man. I appreciate that. I spent a lot of time working on those stories.
