The dentures

My elder Grand-son had a toy windup set of plastic teeth, bought while in the UK. He had lost it. He wanted a replacement. We searched high and low in the toy shops in Sri Lanka to no avail. My wife had a coronary by-pass. When she was recovering, my grand-son who knew that she was wearing dentures, told her that if she passed away, that he wanted her dentures. Eventually came Christmas and he wrote a letter to Santa Claus where he mentioned the dentures. Ultimately his 'Baappa' and 'Punchi' got this for him for Christmas. You can see him proudly holding the dentures in his hands last Christmas day.
