CeeLee’s Smile


Sorry I’ve been away, but I’ve so much to show you…

I hated my smile
Always hiding my smile


Let’s recap.

I’ve hated smiling for years.  (Refer to above picture) I abhorred picture time and would stretch my mouth as wide as I could, in hopes that no teeth would show.

That is, if the flat out running away wasn’t an option. Most times, it was not, sad to say.

But as much as I dreaded pics and my photo sniper family and the subsequent hours spent, trying to filter out the many off-guard moments captured in time, I dreaded going to the dentist more.

Because it never ended happily for me.

That came to a screeching halt this summer when I decided that I was tired of ducking my head or putting Duck’s big toothy grin in front of me as camouflage.

After all, this has been my breakout year. The year I took back my life and walloped the hell out of some big ole dragons.

Still strong
I got brave and fixed my smile.

A side note?

He’s happier too, at not having to be front and center or placed at weird angles, as my human smile shield.


I love my smile
Instead of my camouflage, Duck’s a photo bomber


It wasn’t easy.

Sure did hurt a ton.

Took almost the whole summer, but its been worth all the effort.

Yep, this is me.

Life is good
And I’m smiling


Oh yeah, before I forget.

Did I mention I’m back and better than ever? Consider it mentioned.  😉

  5. Well would ya’ lookie here – seeing a new post on the pool sure put a smile on my face (except mine didn’t hurt a bit)

    I had me a smile built a couple of years ago so I feel your pain (and not just in that namby-pamby political sense) fortunately I found a good dentist with a 55 gallon drum of Novocain and he was not afraid to use it…. They say no pain no gain… GAIN! 😀

    I won’t chastise you for not blogging in so long only because I have seen signs of life from you on twitbook and facer. I will just continue to click you from my favorites links cuz you are…. welcome back tho.

    1. So happy I made you smile, Mike.
      It’s been quite awhile, I know.
      I’ve been remiss in posting, but having since concluded my summer project, I’m happy to say I’m breaking the silence. 🙂
      And you made my day, just in case you were wondering. Being a favorite of yours is an honor indeed.

  6. Keep smiling my friend as your smile is lovely and suits you even though you are wearing Speedos 😉 That’s cool 😎 ❤

    1. When I saw “Ralph” and “Speedos” in the same comment my first thought was to quickly turn away thinking “Oh no, he’s at it again!” … When I worked up the courage to turn back I find he was only saying what everyone was thinking. Cool indeed 8)

    2. I agree totally lol
      Ralph and Speedos…well, the image in my head goes together as well a peanut butter pickle sandwich might 😉
      Funny to think about but…lol
      Love ya Ralph 😆

I love getting comments. It's as close to being famous as I'll ever get.
