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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
