  1. Yuck.

    Exactly what you need - someone skilled in both dental care and leeching. They go hand in hand.

  2. I remember getting leeches on my ankles as a kid when I was playing with my brothers in a shallow swampy end of a lake (where we weren't supposed to be) that my parents used to take us on picnics. I was fascinated by them and didn't think they were creepy at all.

  3. Multitasking in the 1830's! I love these old advertisements - I look at them all the time when I peruse old newspapers. They are such a hoot to read!

  4. I was at the dentist yesterday and I am so happy she didn't pull out any leeches!

  5. Wonder if this is what killed my great-uncle who died in the dentist chair? More likely it was anesthesia. Whatever - don't like dentists or leeches.

  6. Interesting combination, leeching and denistry.
