All I Want for Christmas is Four Tires & a Crown

3 weeks ago, I had X rays and and MRI .. on the way to the MRI half of my tooth fell off.
I came home and Bob said, my truck tires are bald
. I said well, I am going to need a crown.

PREVIOUSLY in the life of MadSnapper... we received a letter from MetLife that state Bob was owed insurance benefits from his wife who had died in 1980, they were audited by the IRS and found it.

Bob  had no idea there was a policy. We mailed the paperwork back the next day and waited. We had no idea how much it would be.

We started to sing all I want for Christmas Is 4 tires and a tooth..

The check came, The Mailman From Hell did not put it in the wrong  mailbox (to be told in future post)

The check covered.... 4 tires and an oil change on Bob's Truck, 5 batteries for his RC planes, Plus my first visit to my new dentist . Merry Christmas from Bob's first wife.

I had no dentist, Merry Christmas from my friend Lola who recommended her dentist, David Heaton. 

I LOVE HIM.. his personality is like a Singing Santa but with dark hair and no beard.
Merry Christmas to me, I did not even feel the needle when he numbed my upper gums
We used the budgeted tire money to pay for my new crown.
Santa brought the new tooth to the office and it is scheduled to be added to my SMILE on Jan 11th.
Don't worry, I have a fake tooth until then.

He was sitting right there on the front desk, holding my new tooth....HO HO HO..

isn't my new smiling crown cute?I wonder how it will look when I smile? HO HO HO

What a nice surprise! And just in the "nick" of time. Merry Christmas. Thanks for visiting my blog!


We got a surprise check in the mail the other day too. Tho, it didn't even cover a full dinner for two. LOL

My....Sandra....what big teeth you have!!! All the better to chew some major postal carrier's butt when he/she misdelivers. Oh how I can empathize.

Ann said...

Perfect timing on the audit and them finding the policy. Your new tooth looks very happy. I guess it's excited about moving in to your mouth next

That is a very rare thing, to receive money owed to you (and hubby) from so long ago. How nice Santa was to send it to you to take care of your recent big ticket expenses. God provides.

Well..for heaven's sake!! That is just plain fantastic! It's called ..what.."mana from heaven.." or some such thing.
By the way, dear Sandra, getting a picture of YOU is like pulling teeth! LOL Not to fear! You will be beautiful and your new tooth will sparkle like Rudolph's nose!!

That was a super Christmas gift. I guess the past holds some mysteries and they can pop up anytime! Good to know.
Happy holidays to you.
