Thanks Charlie Daniels!


This morning my mom woke up with a toothache. She called her dentist to get an appointment. She was so lucky. Tomorrow morning he is going to Europe for his vacation. He was very nice telling my mom to go to his clinic and get it fixed. Her molar was broken. Now, her mouth is sleeping, she is drooling and her wallet is empty!


We live in Torreon and my mom works in Gomez Palacio. The two cities are divided by a river that has been dry for 40 years. The water is contained in a ditch. The ditch was "more than full" due to all the rain we have had these days. So, the government decided to open the canal locks.

This is the road my mom uses to go to her office.

Now, she has to use that bridge you can see in this picture. Everyone has to use it too. Now, it takes 1 hour to my mom to go from our house to her office and viceversa. Today was a nightmare. The dentist's clinic is in Torreon so she had to cross the bridge 4 times! Twice going, twice coming!


Saying Hello to Verne!


Have a good night

Rambo said...

Hi Verne and Hi Lorenza,
that's too bad about the washed out road. Seems like your Mom has a California commute now. Traffic here is TERRIBLE, but not because of an overflow. There's just too many cars!
Hope her tooth gets better soon.

Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Lorenza

Your poor mom. My mom says toothaches are very painful. I like your friend Verne. He seems very nice. Maybe your mom can take a boat to work.

Love Ruby

Oh my, what alot of water Lorenza!!Your poor, poor Momma. The toe,the tooth and all the driving!
You were very cute with your friend. And looked lovely in your dress as always!

Bee Bee said...


Oops sorry to hear about your mum's toothache -- truth is, my Jiejie is also complaining about her tooth. I am contemplating should I lend her my toy to bite, I'll let you know if she feels better after biting teeheehee!

The Animal Doctor said...

Oh dear, we hope your Mom feels better soon, Lorenza.Our Secretary has a hard time going to her office too. The traffic situation here in the Philippines is just horrible! The first thing that goes into our Secretary's mind upon arriving in her office is how she will go home in the afternoon.

Pee-Es: Your blue dress is so pretty!

Buenas dias!

Sorry to hear about your mom's tooth - but I'm glad she was able to get it fixed!
That's a lot of water! Will they drain the canal again? That's too much time for your mom to be away from you!
PS: Very cute friend!

Charlie Daniels said...

G'day Lorenza

Kess And Her Mama said...

Congrats on the Gold Paw Award! Ask your grandma to make you a gold dress to match! Hope your mum's tooth is much better.

i said...

Hope your mom's tooth is ok now. Good thing she managed to catch her dentist before he goes off.

Wow, that's a lot of water there! There must have been a lot of rain at your place.

What a cutie friend you have there. Nice to be visiting neighbours eh?

Have a good weekend now!

Poppy said...

It looks like you have a very cute and curly friend there!


Amber-Mae said...

Wow! Your poor Mom... I think my Hooman M would be boiling mad if she had to use that bridge everyday to go to work. I hope your Mom's tooth can be fixed soon. Mommy says toothache hurts like hell! Is it true? I never had one before so I don't know.

¡Guuaauuuu que cantidad de agua!, y yo que creía que llovía mucho donde vivo...
Espero que el diente de tu mami se arregle antes de sus vacaciones... Seguro que Europa le va a encantar -como a nosotros México si pudieramos ir-.

Katie and Gizmo said...

Ouchy. My mummy hates the dentist. I wouldn't know myself but a broken molar sure does sound bad.

Give her plenty of licks better.

Love Gizmo

Melito said...

Toffee said...

I hope that your mom feels better today!!! I am sure all that traveling must have made her tooth feel awful!

BenTheRotti said...

Oh Poor Momma!! Hope her tooth is feeling better now, I'm sending special rotti-slobbers and healing sugar sprinkled kisses to her.
It must be a nightmare all that travelling, and Mum says her wallet is always empty after a dentist visit too! In fact she says she followed the wrong career path and should have become a dentist and then we would be rich!!

Have a great weekend sweet one,

Ben xxxx

Snowy and Crystal said...

Pedro said...


Are the canal locks just going to be opened for a little while then closed so your mom can use that road again? That is sooo inconvenient to have to drive for so long to go to work! I hope your mom's tooth feels better.


Clover said...

Mercury too has a bad tooth (the wisdom kind)...I don't know why it should be in her mouth!

I am sure your mom would be fine soon:) Don't worry...just give her a big slurpy lick.

umekotyan said...

Good evening lorenza.
Congratulations on Award.
Awaking by the decayed tooth is painful.
Visit the dentist early, and give to me.
Do ..injury.. Ta of the day and it recovers .... naturally.
I always think that teeth only have to recover.
The water of rain occupies the canal.
It is terrible amount of rain.
It clears up surely on the weekend.
Please spend a wonderful weekend. :D

from loved ume tyan

That water looks bad. Your poor mom. It must make her sad to take so long to get to work (and then home to you).
