Cancer: A Horrible Word, A Horrible Disease

Wow, what an awful topic... but so much in my life right now!

My wonderful Hubby had some skin cancer removed late Oct (first time for him) my brothers have had to take care of that many times but it was a first for him and the word is just an awful thing to hear!

My beautiful cousin and my partner in crime was diagnosed with Breast cancer in mid November.  She had surgery and has more treatment to come.

And last My Wonderful Uncle Chuck was diagnosed with a fast growing aggressive brain tumor a week before Thanksgiving.  He is 85 years old and has driven up until a month ago.  He is my God Father (the Cert above) and is a WWII Veteran.  He is a Christian and he knows where he is going.  He is the last of four brothers to go home.  He has so many there that will welcome him with open arms.  I can just see those four brothers sitting in there lawn chairs out in the front yard having a beer.  They will be together again. 
I will miss him with all my heart!

About My Last Post

A lot has been happening this year!
In April I decided to go into business for myself... I needed to be able to make my own work schedule with both of my daughters getting married sooooo......
I went full circle... In 1984 a friend and I opened a nail salon in Barstow, CA, called Fancy Fingers.  I was pregnant with my first child, went to Barstow Beauty Academy, was state licensed as a manicurist and had my daughter all in the first 6 months of that year.  A year later I gave up that salon and started working for a salon closer to where my hubby and I lived and about 8 months later started working in my home as a manicurist.  At that time I was pregnant with my second child.  I worked from my home for most of my girls upbringing.  Sooo...
All these years later, never thinking that I would work as a manicurist again, I decided, with the encouragement of a friend, To Come full Circle....
This salon has a little more to it than the first salon...  of course I do nails (manicures, pedicures, acrylics, wraps, nail art, etc) there is a tanning room and that friend who encouraged me... she is a Certified Massage Therapist, so she has her own room that she works out of... BODY THERAPY BY ANGIE!

Without My HUBBY and that wonderful FRIEND,  FANCY FINGERS PLUS would not exist!
