Another Surprise

Posted on January 11, 2017 at 4:25 PM

At 9 a.m. today, I was in the dentist’s chair with my mouth open, chock full of his hand and dental equipment. Repairing a bridge.


Doing fine. No pain. Then realized I recognized what was playing over the sound system. It was so quiet. I knew that song, couldn’t place it.


Unexpectedly my eyes started to fill. I couldn’t believe it. “Id dat duh Munkees?” I asked, the moment his hand pulled away from my vanished molars.


“Yes,” he answered.


Daydream Believer.


I forced myself to turn off the urge to cry. It was a blessing.


Dad would be 96 today.


He was an editor on “The Monkees.”


Thank you, Lord. I needed that.

Oh, what a great way to have your dad reach out to you as I'm sure that's exactly why that song was playing right at that very moment!!

My website server has run me in circles since I first started trying to get this update online. It has now taken half a working day (including part of this morning) to realize that it's impossible to correct the content and insert a picture that is not distorted, much less delete the photo that is distorted. Sorry about that, Dad. I'm only leaving it here because the incident was so striking. I'm more stubborn than I thought - I should have been trying to get someone in Washington to give me five minutes of time. If it happens, it will be a major event as unbelievable as the sun rotating madly over Fatima.
