The gig was up

This morning was a dental day. I had an appointment last month that didn't happen. "Ah, I have to donate a kidney today, so I won't be able to get my dental cleaning."

The month before that had something to do with bigfoot, or maybe it was aliens.

The dentist's office called a few weeks ago just after I woke up from a nap and my thinking was as slow as a drunk turtle.

Anyhow, today was the day.

The leaves are showing out here now. When I parked the truck, I had to snap a picture of these two maples growing beside the lat. I could see the morning sun peeking through the leaves. It took some adjustment, but I finally got an image that wasn't a silhouette.

Did I mention that the sky was an incredible color of blue?


  1. I put off an appointment and now next week I have to go for a root canal at 6:50 in the am! I hope I have something as pretty as you did to take a pic of!

  2. We all have to bite the bullet at one time per another. None of us seems to like the dentist. Sooner or later though we can't find anymore excuses and are forced to go. Truly a beautiful blue in that picture. The color in the trees make for a great compliment.

  3. Ahhh the beauty of the Maple. As sweet as maple syrup! Now keep the appts, it is a rule!

  4. I so appreciate the colors in this picture. It captures autumn perfectly.

  5. Ooh that picture is beautiful. Now I know what happened the next day...yes dentists..blecchh

  6. Maple trees have such leaves, such brilliance.

    Bite the bullet. You, too, can survive the dentist.
