I remember the fun times as a little girl with my friend next door Sally. We didn't have much but we have such a great imagination that went a long ways. The dresses we wore at our pretend tea parties were from her older sisters hand me downs. As little girls the excitement we had with the first set of
fake nails didn't even compare to the men landing on the moon. Our excitement was more with those nails.
Over the years Sally and I moved apart. Her husband had a traveling job which took him all around the world. The good things about this for Sally was so many different experiences in so many different countries. We caught up with each other few months back on facebook. The conversation that I had with her was almost three hours long. Reminiscing about the fun and how great it would be if we could get together again. As we were talking the conversation went to our tea parties. What a memory.
She sent me pictures of her new solar nails she says all through her life on a daily basis she had been addicted to the beauty and the manicuring of her nails. What Sally doesn't know and I didn't lead into it is that I had been working as a manicurist for the last ten years. My specialty at the shop is airbrush nails it was tough for me to hold back from telling her but I did because later on this year Sally will be flying in to San Francisco for a short visit with her sister. I talked to her sister and she is going to tell me when Sally is going to be there that way I can fly from Cold New York to the beaches of California to have a long awaited reunion with my closest friend.
