Poor Ocker, once you get all that pus out, it should heal up. I've had a frantic day. Had an old chappie come in telling me he intends to start up a Fashion Museum, and that my little shop was a goldmine. He put it to me that he would give me $20 deposit and then pick out a number of retro clothes.Well there has been clothes flying everywhere, wigs, gloves, scarves, shoes, hats, 45 records, and trying to tidy up as we go, then he needed a coffee and a wee. Finally after about 3 hours he left, but all the time I am thinking "is he taking all this stuff leaving me with a $20 note?" "Will I see him again? " I gave him some stuff, but no he said, "I won't take it now, I will fix you up after a couple of pensions, see you in two weeks!"

Ocker, there is a lady who will come to your home and give you a pedicure, well cut your toenails anyhow - for $15. I can get her name for you if would like. Other Nana of the one who is supposed to come and uplift the furniture.
A lot of churches have afternoons, one in Bryndwr is 2 monthly I think, where, for a donation, you get footbath, nail trim and foot massage PLUS a cuppa and a bite to eat. Going to book himself in again pretty soon.
That'd be good Aggie if she could

Benny....I did go and it was a beautiful service. Fortunately I don't need to go to funerals too often, but I felt that I had to go to this one. He was my Father in Law for 6 years and he still considered me his daughter in law, although his son married a Phillipino lady in the meantime. The gout in my foot hurts like hell, had to go for bloodtests yesterday and both my arms are bruised as the nurse kept poking around to find a vein. Grrrr......Have you toe seen to Ocker.......it could lead to all sorts of problems. Take care.
Heed Dutchy's advice Ocker, my dad lost both lower legs to gangrene and f.in.law one. Bit foot sensitive round here
Just wondering if this was from diabetes.
My late husband had a minor heart attack five years ago. After blood tests etc found he was diabetic. His one fear was losing toes, or feet.
Even though the feet could become quite numb, he still went through so much pain.

If you got a lady like that for $15.00 a go you hold on to her!!! Wife thought she was doing well to get the same service for $40.00!
