Dental Holiday: Mother’s Day


Skosky Family Dentistry’s display artist went for the flower theme to celebrate Mother’s Day.  Good choice, because –  in the spirit of of doing exactly what your mother desires on her day – my mother wants us to take her to a locally-owned nursery to pick out annuals as her gift.

She also loves an earth-toned ranch house teaming with blooms, and has done a wonderful job of transforming hers into exactly that.  But she often wishes for just a little more square footage.  In the “I Want To Go To There” world, this is what I’d give her on Mother’s Day…


This is my favorite house on the Ranch Side of St. Louis Hills, south of Francis Park.  It faces the park, so when it was for sale a couple of years ago, I’d frequently walk around Francis Park just to gaze longingly at it and day dream.   Happily, the folks who did buy it take immaculate care of it, but I keep hoping it will one day be mine, because dreaming is free.

Dental Holiday: Happy Easter


Happiest of Easters to you, from me and Raymond J. Skosky Family Dentistry.


It’s a very confusing religious holiday.  Eddie Izzard explained it best. View his clip to understand the comedic poignancy of the following anecdote.


Made the traditional trip to Crown Candy to get molasses puffs for my Mother.  The place was sardine packed, so I had plenty of time to stare down every piece of chocolate.  One of them made me burst into laughter…. a chocolate rabbit hauling a wagon of eggs!!

Viewed from a pagan perspective, just absurd!  Viewed from a Christian angle… yeah, still pretty absurd.  But still just as tasty, don’t ya know.

May your sugar highs be plentiful on Easter Sunday!
