Isn't this a different turn of events?
Well, you just never know what life is going to throw at you.
Since we are travelling in a 28-year-old boat we expect that things are going to break down. It's a given. What we didn't count on was us breaking down.
The day before yesterday Harley broke a crown off a tooth. Now if we were on a 2-week vacation we would brush it off and say he'll get it fixed when we get home but, since we are out for the year, there is no escaping the fact that he is going to have to get it looked at. We toyed with the idea of getting a dentist in the states to repair it but, we figured that since we are only 3 hours away (can you believe it? And it only took us 2 weeks to get here. lol) we would rent a car and go back to our own dentist in Ontario.
We called our son, Brent, to let him know that we would be coming home for a day or two and he, being the thoughtful person that he is, offered to come pick us up. He said he was due for a road trip anyway. What a nice kid!
Anyway, he picked us up yesterday and while we were out for dinner doesn't another crown fall off another tooth. What's with that!? So here we are in Barrie and Harley is at the dentist at this moment.
