janilye - 7th generation, Convict stock. Born in New South Wales now living in Victoria, carrying, with pride 'The Birthstain'.
With all these profile photographs I've been attaching over the years.
I just can't help thinking,"Hasn't dentistry come a long way?"
HAHAHAHAHA Jan, that is funny. Bless the dear lady's heart in the above picture. When my Mom got real elderly, she had to have dentures. Mom was never a shy one. When I took her to a restaurant, she would whip out her denture case and pop them in her purse. Seems like I was constantly saying, "Mom, Please! "I can't help it, I feel better with my dentures out when I'm eating." "Oh Mom!" You all probably know this, but our First President of these United States wore wooden dentures. Yes, Janilye. denistry has come a long way! Thank goodness!! HAHAHA Look at all the beautiful smiles.
It's difficult to find a smiler before 1920 and the ones that are smiling you wish they hadn't.
I love my dear deceased Mother dearly. She was sweet and witty. After swallowing her food, patting her lips with her napkin, she could make a witty comment. She would grin and smile widely exposing a caverous depth. Oh please! Please!! Mom. I can chuckle about it now. Age has a way of taking care of things. If Mom was with us today, and if I teased her about her denture cup, she would probably comment, "Whatever." Memories. Some can keep me grinning and chuckling.
