there’s fungus among us

My 90-year-old father had his first ever pedicure the other day. He’s too old to reach his feet, and his nails are too gnarled and nasty for anyone but this sweet Vietnamese manicurist to want to touch. He was a little confused about what was going on, but everyone at the salon was so gracious that he ended up having a great time. Next time I think my mother and I will join in!

    Hi.! that is exactly what I do however I go to people’s homes and do their footcare in the privacy of their home.
    Older people, (in particular) need to take good care of their feet as so many problems can develop as a result of neglect. Yes, fungus included!
    Glad your Grandfather enjoyed it, he should keep it up, on a regular basis if possible.
    If I lived closer I would be glad to be his “in home” pedicurist! 🙂
