29 seconds extra of sunshine

super senior day purchase: purple poppies for my green and purple room

I first thought these were miniature quilts but closer examination shows that they are painted hand made paper Still haven't figured a place for them
Maya from last night. We thought we would watch all five tonight when their parents went out but illness in one of the grandchildren postponed the whole event until we will have 6 to watch

Twenty-nine seconds are tacked on to each new day since the solstice. Not fast enough for me. Today was the sunniest and calmest day of the week so out for a 16 mile bike ride early this morning. Unfortunately it was 27. I bundled up but still the cold, moving air got under my helmet. Not much room in there for a hat though maybe those thin covers I slept in when I was bald might help.

A fun time was had calling my insurance company for the umpteenth time concerning my tooth repair. Broken teeth due to an accident is allegedly covered. There are no dentists in their network, only oral surgeons, who would not repair my teeth so I was given an 'out-of network exception' Trying to get them to pay for the bills is quite a challenge. Each month, since February, I think it is finally settled but then it isn't. I got a denial of claim letter last week. Something about the wrong code was entered. Codes I know they had provided my dentist. They say they will pay when the proper codes are entered. No they can't give me, the patient, the codes. My provider has to ask for them. The provider is closed until next week. I've done all I could until then though I did get the magic code phone number for my provider to call.

It has put a dark cloud over my holiday.

This has been going on for way too long. And you have to assume it is expensive. Settling the claim months ago would surely have been more cost effective.
Good luck.

They paid without blinking, the plastic surgeon's work which was more than twice as much for a fraction of the time. Still it is a big bill for us not to be reimbursed for just because their right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing.
