what do you mean, you’re retiring???!


This man has been my dentist ever since I moved out here in 1986 and today I was his very last patient before he retired! We were both busy having children when we first met and today he is already Grandad to 3 girls and I get to be Grandma to 1 this summer – how did that happen??!!
He has tolerated my oh so English approach to dental care very gracefully – “no, you’re not taking any of my family’s wisdom teeth out, no, we don’t need x-rays and no, our children don’t need braces just in case they don’t have the ‘perfect’ smile when they’re adults!” 😉
Theoretically we should have found a new dentist when we left Woodinville for West Seattle over 2 years ago but somehow we never quite got around to it. Maybe it was karma then that the new dentist who took over from him today actually lives in West Seattle???!
My great idea is that he could just drop in for happy hour now and again and check out my teeth while I pour him his wine…….
…. what??! 😉


About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
