|The clapper with the broken end and the cause of a lot of grief. Just as well there was 20 mm of rain this week to take the pressure of making grass grow.|

So after 3 hours of fiddling about it was time to go off to the dentist ( a 2 hour round trip) and see about a tooth with a crumbling filling.
While making the appointment with the receptionist:
John "Should I make an extended appointment in case it requires a crown?"
Receptionist "No, doctor will make time if it's needed and we can fit you in this Friday"
Dentist (on Friday) "It will need a crown"
John "Lets start now"
Dentist "I don't have enough time now, you will have to come back for a one hour session but it will be in the next week or two"
Dentist "I'll put in a temporary filling until then to make it comfortable"
John (visions of $200 with wings) "Don't worry about the filling its not bothering me"
Dentist " It needs to be protected from further damage"
Receptionist (later) "I'm sorry we can't fit you in for three weeks"
John "That will do. How much do I owe for this visit?"
Receptionist " It says no charge, that can't be right let me go and check"
Receptionist (later) " No that is right doctor says no charge"
So, not a bad Friday after all. And the irrigator ran fine all day. Sat outside and watched the sun set with sparkling wine and smoked Salmon.
