Dental emergencies are awful; I do hope all is well soon, SLB!
I found it helpful to arrange my settings so that an email now comes to me whenever a new post is made here. That was one of the greatest features on WLB because I was always aware of the conversation even if I only had a moment to contribute. My email is always on-screen, but I don’t always access other sites when things get busy.
I haven’t seen my White-winged Dove in a couple days now. I had the unfortunate experience of witnessing a cat run off with one of my doves and I am hoping against hope that it wasn’t that one! I thought it looked like a Mourning Dove, but it was hard to tell as I went chasing the cat down the street; very upsetting.
