Cloud-capp'd towers

Appropriate weather for a walk to the dentist's, perhaps.

It was only a routine check-up, and the dentist pronounced all well: indeed, he said I had a young man's gums.

The poor soul must be missing them.


  1. I think I should go out and steal some young gums for myself.

  2. lucky fellow, to have such choppers.

  3. Darling A,

    Somehow dental visits really do seem to be associated with gloom and doom. However, lucky you to have teeth that could, presumably, make a teenager proud. Alas, we are into the expensive dental realms of crowns, implants and bridges. No doubt, our gums are no longer youthful....:(:(

  4. Hmm. I seem to have some old lady's gums. I can't think how they ended up in my mouth.
