I’m reminded once again of the loss of flexibility impacting some of the things chronologically younger people take for granted–not because Father’s Day is June 17th, but because an older person was recently talking about how difficult it’s becoming to bend as far as necessary to cut his toe nails.
We know how important it is to keep all body parts moving. We also know parts stiffen with age. In addition, as some people age their hands aren’t as steady as they once were. And nails that are not taken care of–as with anything else-can cause problems. Thus, I’m re-blogging a 2011 Father’s Day post because its first gift suggestion is pedicures for men. https://helpparentsagewell.com/2011/06/16/a-fathers-day-round-up-of-gifts-for-aging-dads-continues/ (The other suggestions, of course, provide additional ideas far enough in advance that they should be easy to get–and send.)
