I Survived!!!!

I survived the dental work today. It was touch and go there for awhile, but I've spent most of the day on the couch drooling on my pillow. 
Tonight Jilda fixed a pot of 15 bean soup which is one of my favorites. I had to lean my head to starboard and eat, but it's hard to describe just how good it tasted.
I just took my antibiotics and more pain meds so I expect my typing will soon be slurred as if I'd been drinking tequila. 
I'm hoping tonight is the last of the pain meds because they make me feel kind of goofy. Jilda pointed out that I often act goofy and anyone would be hard pressed to tell if I were on drugs or not. I'd never thought of it quite like that.
Last night at midnight was the last of the voting for Phil Campbell. This morning when I checked, they were leading by 4,000 votes. Glee Give a Note will officially announce the winners on December 1st.
When I first asked you all to consider voting for the school, I wasn't sure how it would be received, but I've been in awe at how many of you continued to vote each day and also shared the link with your friends.
I am grateful to you all. I'm sure the kids in the Phil Campbell band are amazed at how their tiny school in Alabama could generate over 60 thousand votes in less than a month.
Y'all do good work. Now it's time for the Rickster to hit the couch.

  4. Glad you are on the 'other side' and heading toward recuperation. Hope the Phil Campbell school wins. I voted every day.
