Cutting my mom's nails

State of her nails 30 minutes ago...

Torture devices... (thankfully no one for my nails!)

Checking my own nails.... nope... they don't need to be cut... for now!

A little massage to start...

A final massage....

I am thirsty after the manicure...

Ok! Lets go to check....

The result!


Girl Girl
gave me this award. It is the BFF Gold Card!

Thanks Girl Girl!

I'm going to pass to my friends:
Now, the rules re passing it on are as follows:-
1. Only five people allowed.
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

Not an easy decision because I'd like to pass it to everyone! But rules are rules...

On Maggie and Mitch's blog I saw they played "Needs"
They said that all you have to do is Google your first name with the word "needs" behind it and post the results. I am thinking I have financial problems because I got... more than 10 times....



I hope you all had a great weekend

Franny said...

If Google says you need a loan, I can lend you a few dog bones and biscuits. Let me know! I hate getting my nails cut. Good thing your nails weren't cut today. I must admit, your mom's nails are super clean!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

My goodness, Lorenza..ur mom has tons of nail torture devices!!! We loved the massage you gave her...and you did a great job on her cuticles!!!!!

I need to go and trim mine...darn things get soooooooo long!!!

Barkies, Laciegirl

Charlie Daniels said...

I hope Mum only uses those devices for nail torture! ;-)



River said...

You did a great job with the nails--although we agree they were pretty before, too. Congratulations on your award. That is a pretty one.

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh dear...D's nails are a disgrace compared to your mums. She has done a very tidy job. D chews her nails....naughty naughty.


Thor said...

Você fez um bom trabalho ajudando tua mama com as unhas!
Parabéns pelo award!


Koobuss said...

Sorry Lorenza. I'm broke. I can't give you a loan. Maybe after payday, whenever that is.

Did you mom really want her nails so low? They were so pretty.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Deefor said...

You are so helpful and talented. Your mom sure is lucky. Wish you could come over and do my mom's nails. They're a mess.


the 4 Bs said...

hi Lorenza, you did a good job of helping your mom with her manicure. it looks like her nails are are trim as yours now. hee hee.

that's funny that you need a loan. we're gonna have to try that and find out what we need.


Girl Girl Hamster said...

Patience-please said...

HEY! We got to learn from you - we've got it backwards!!! The servant does OUR nails all the time. We like it much better your way!

Xsara ... said...

I agree with Patience, I think Xsara would prefer to do my nails rather than have her nails trimmed

Pedro said...


I did the "needs" thing and got:
1. Pedro needs to hang up the glove
2. Pedro needs a home
3. Pedro needs to lead by example

1 & 3 were about Pedro Martinez, 2 was about a dog that was up for adoption in 2006.

Good job on the manicure. Did your mom get sick of the nails? My mom chopped all of hers off about a month ago and they're finally starting to grow back.


Huskee Boy said...

Hi Lorenza,
Those sure look like torture devices!! I am glad those are not used on MY nails!!
Congrats on your award!!

Asta Marie said...
