Today I did something I have never done before – I went to the dentist at our local satellite campus for Cal State Chico\’s Dental Hygienist programs. It is FREE for those who are brave enough to allow students to work on their teeth. I did see a dentist – but he just made sure the gal did everything right. Today was just the dental check and X-rays. I will go back for a cleaning and that is only $30. As long as your teeth are in good condition, which I knew both of ours were, this is the way to go. We lost our dental insurance when he retired. We could have paid the premium but the place the State of California contracted for dental was the worst place to go. The husband went a month ago for his and thought it was a good deal. It had been all last year we both had not seen the dentist or had a cleaning. Fortunately, no cavities, and my gums look good. We do have to find a new dentist that is not with that group.
Yesterday we received a notice from our county assessors office stating they were going to reassess our property taxes. The husband called this morning and they told him, that we inherited the house from his dad in Dec 2020. He told them we did not. We have been in this house for 13 years. So they transferred him to another person, who was not at her desk – he left a message and we\’ve been waiting for the callback. I couldn\’t wait any longer – it\’s their error – why should we have to wait. So I called them when the husband was at the dog park with Laydee. The deal is, my husband is a JUNIOR and his dad was a Senior. There have been many mix-ups in the past. One funny one, was when we received a summons for a court date in Texas – for unpaid speeding tickets. It was Pop. So I explained that and she just needed my husband\’s last 4 digits of his social security number and came back less than a minute later acknowledging the error and would let the Assessor know. So that\’s that!
Speaking of my father-in-law – the cemetery called to let us know, his official VA headstone has been installed so tomorrow we\’ll drive over to take a look.
The last couple of months, Pop has received his 2 stimulus checks – We voided them out, took a copy of the voided check, and mailed it back to where we were told. Doggone it, if we didn\’t get another notice today, saying that a stimulus check will be coming to him within the next 7 days.
I give up. We send them back – they keep sending them to us.
It\’s a good thing we are honest.
