12-9 Small Town Living

Dentist Office on the Fifth Floor
Valvoline Instant Oil Change

Last summer in one of my blog post I talked about how we loved living in our small town. Even though the towns in the area are small we seem to stay busy all the time doing something and it doesn't take you long to get where you need or want to be. When Larry and I moved to the area we had to find a new dentist and a couple of folks recommended one that is located in downtown Temple in the Extraco Bank building (the second tallest building in town, nine whole floors). Now in many cities most folks would rather suffer a small beating than to go downtown but here it is really easy. Parking is free and you can get a parking place right next to the building so you don't have to walk far. Today we went to have our teeth cleaned and then we went to get the truck inspected and oil changed at the Valvoline Instant Oil Change place. Once again no waiting. After lunch we went to the Bell County Appraisal District Vehicle Registration to pay for the tags for the truck. No waiting, and I mean no waiting, simply walk up and visit with one of the friendly clerks, get your new tags. What a wonderful feeling being able to do what you need to do without any stress.

 In the evening Larry and I went to Georgetown to dance with the Shirts 'n' Skirts Club. Before going Larry and I discussed what to wear, we weren't sure if it was their Christmas dance or if it was next week. When we arrived we found out that today was their Christmas dance. Had we known we would have dressed a bit differently but we were still dressed in red. We got there a little early and I danced a couple of tips with the students during their class. There were enough people for seven mainstream squares and four plus squares. In between each square dancing tip either Lucy or Jerry Pate cued for rounds. Jim called four tips during the dance. The club supplies refreshments for their dances and tonight there was more food then normal. The food was delicious. The dance was only an hour and a half but we had a super time.
