Dentist & Dobbin

Last April a tooth crown broke off and left just a piece of the tooth.  The dentist in Tucson said it would take about 6 weeks to repair it correctly and we were scheduled to leave in a week so I put it off until now.  It took 3 weeks to get an appointment and today was the day.  Our local dentist said it would take the same 6 weeks to repair the problem and I had better get started on it.  GULP!  I hate to have teeth pulled, but in this case I don't have any choice.  Work begins at 7:30am on the 22nd with the extraction.   7:30AM!!!   What a terrible time to be at a dentist's office.

Our 54th wedding anniversary is on August 17th and we have friends coming in for a few days so we celebrated the anniversary at the Dobbin House in Gettysburg, PA.  It is the same place that we went to last year when we celebrated our anniversary and also Barbara & Henry's big day.

Gerry loves the Crab a la Dobbin which is a plate full of lump crab meat, salad, sweet potato, freshly baked bread and muffins.  She said it was fantastic and enjoyed the meal a lot.  I had Corvina covered in horseradish, baked potato, salad & the baked bread and muffins.  It was an outstanding meal and we both enjoyed it. 

The Dobbin House dates back to the early 1800s and is a very large and impressive old home.  The room where we sat had 4 double tables and one table for 4 and all were occupied while we were there.  Not the place for an intimate conversation, but very nice.

We had our picture taken at the hostess station which is in front of a very large fireplace that they must have cooked on those many years ago.  If you look closely, you will see a turkey hanging down from the ceiling just above Gerry's head.  The fireplace was authentic and had an old flintlock gun on the mantle.  

When we were leaving there was a group in front of the Dobbin House on a ghost tour.  There are many ghost tours in Gettysburg and if you believe in them, you can go into old cellars, taverns and haunted places.  It is amazing the number of people waiting on main street to take the tours.  This would be right up Dee K's alley if she were in the area.

  1. I love the picture. It has a real authentic appearance. You look like you were a little cocky way back then. Good thing you've changed. Congratulations again on your anniversary. Say hi to your visitors from us.
