Tuesday Photo challenge: Decay

Frank’s subject this week is Decay.

Of course the thing that immediately comes to mind for me is teeth!
As a kid, the dentist and TV ads were always going on about tooth decay, and for a youngster like me with an incredible sweet tooth, it was always bad news.
Each trip to the dentist meant a filling, or worse, extraction, and I got so fed up I told the dentist where to go. My Mum reprimanded me with a surprised  ‘DIANA!’ but I was convinced that if the dentist had his way, I’d have a set of false gnashers before I was 20.

Here’s a little ditty I wrote years ago which was included in one of my early bog posts:

In olden days, when my teeth were mine,
I could smile without a care,
But now I’m toothless and gummy,
And my teeth are over there.
They smile at me from a distance,
Which seems a little bizarre,
As though I’m in bed by the window,
They’re on the sill in a jar.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
