FLORA, ILLINOIS 1-23-02
This evening as I sit here typing, the thunder is rumbling and the rain is pouring down outside. It was a fairly warm day today, over 60, and the thunderstorm is a nice treat in January. I spent today at the Flora High School giving talks about epilepsy to all the PE classes. They seemed fairly interested, but you know those High Schoolers -- they have to act distant or aloof, so that it looks like they couldn't care less about my talk. But I think they still heard what I was saying. Or at least I hope they did. Pat, the lady at the Chamber of Commerce, gave me a neat surprise today. Her son is a Dentist in Salem, and today I had an appt with Stephen W. Barber, DMD and got my teeth cleaned, polished, and 2 fillings for free. One filling was an old one being fixed, and the other was a new one. I cannot remember a time when I was quite so excited to see a Dentist! I haven't seen a Dentist in several years, and he said my teeth were in great shape. That was really encouraging. Never did I think that getting a free dental check-up would be part of this trip! Thursday I'll be walking around 23 miles to Olney, where the Health Fair was held last wkend. I'll stay there over the wkend. Take care and have a great day! KB
