To the dentist again, full speed ahead

We're heading downtown to our dentist for the repair of yet another crumbling tooth in my mother's head. This has been a mildly traumatic experience for her on our previous several trips, so I hope this goes better. We've certainly had enough practice.
All went well, and I was able to spend some time at Iwajimaya's, having a couple of humbow and cruising around looking at stuff. One item I was NOT so thrilled to see was a nicely shrink-wrapped package of - pig snouts. Yes, several cut off pig noses, mashed up against the plastic like kids at a candy store window, only they were inside looking out...wish I had had a camera.
The sight badly dampened any desire to buy food.
Later, after we got home, I went for a run and workout. Lovely cool breezy afternoon. On the way home, I passed a moving van with a young tough-looking young black guy standing by, loading or unloading. He smiled, I smiled back and said hi, and he said,"Enchante." What a sweet unlooked for event.
Sweet night time walk with the beloved spouse.
