Surprise, Surprise!

Yes!  Two unexpected surprises at the Serious household today.  Both of the ‘Good’ variety.
*  Remember ‘Dad’??  The screw-up handyman?  For those of you who don’t, he was the guy we hired five months ago to do some work for us (erect a new patio, fill in the old ground-level spa with concrete, repair a block wall and build a tool shed).  Everything turned out fine except he way overordered on the sand and concrete and the patio roof leaked!  I’ve been trying for over a month to get him back out here to repair the roof but kept hearing excuses such as;  I’m moving… I’ve had a few personal problems… I hurt my foot, etc.  Well, this morning at 7:30 he calls and tells me he will be here in 30 minutes to repair the roof.  He was and he did!!  Without his son!!  Apparently he had to FIRE his son!  One too many naps on the job I guess.  So I’m waiting for the next rain to see how good of a job he did.  And to think, all it took was for me to mention the California Contractors License Board!
*  The second surprise today was also in the form of a phone call.  It was my DENTIST!!!  On his day off!  From his home!  Checking to see how I was feeling!  Huh??  A doctor actually taking the time to check on a patient??  Unbeleivable!  That was a REALLY big surprise!  We talked for 20 minutes, him asking me about bleeding, pain, etc, and giving me a few tips  on how to help the gums to heal faster.  Then he gave me his cell number, just in case.  He also confirmed that he did indeed give me an extra two root canals, bone grafts and implants because in his words, "while I was already in there…".  WOW!!  I checked and that ‘extra’ work comes to about $4000!  Just my luck!  I finally find a great dentist and now I won’t need one anymore! lol
I’m just hoping that surprises come in three’s. 
Have a super weekend everyone!

    Of course, the dentist was floating in the NEW SWIMMING POOL your surgery paid for…ha!
    Hope the roof is good, glad your dentist is nice, glad your teefus are "gettin’ there"…

    About half of my teeth are now implants.  It was rocky having them put in but it has been quite good since then.  It is like having proper teeth most of the time.

    Two nice surprises! Here is another one, Jean says you have a nice blog so I thought that I would check you out, and guess what? She is right! I hope that you don’t mind me poking around!
    Take care!

    Yikes! All that work on you… I still can’t believe it!
    I wish Myst & I could be in CA nice & warm…

  9. Sue says:

    Yes, I’ve found that when I have any surgery or hospital stay, the doc’s office always calls to find out how I’m doing.  Blows me away!  Sometimes the hospital calls to find out too.  Wish more docs could be that diligent with their patients.  But then, I remember when doctors actually came to your house and treated you there….oh oh, I’m aging myself….

    well here I am! Your 3rd surprise! 
    Yay for you!  Good news is always …. well… just that!  Good news!
    Have a wonderful weekend!  xoxo

  14. Jamie says:

    I am so glad to hear that things went really well for you on this last encounter.   It is really hard to find a good dentist and it sounds like you found a GREAT one.   I am sure you will need to go in once in a while for a check up won’t you????  Just to see how the teeth are holding up.  
    Here is hoping for good news #3.   Have a great weekend.  I gotta go get ready for the Party tonight.  Yeah, ANOTHER birthday party.   Yee Friggen Haw!!!!!!  LOL

  15. Cindy says:

    I’ll drink to surprise #3 being a good one.

  16. Jane says:

    Um… Bob?  It’s BAD things that come in 3’s.  Good things only come in 1’s.  Now you are over the limit and have to either give one back or take a bad thing.  I don’t envy your position, Sir!

  17. R U Serious says:

    Jane??  I’ll give back ‘Dad’!!!

  18. Louise says:

    Hope you’re feeling even better today Bob, nice suprises those.
    (((BIG HUGS))) and bright blessings xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  19. David says:

    Umm – $4000 you hadn’t discussed?  I would be WAY concerned about that.  And Dad sounds a lot like some repairmen I have encountered – except that HE actually showed up…
