A pox on you

As a mother, I always tried to find special treats for our children. One outing was the opportunity to see a Green Bay production of the Nutcracker. Well, everything didn’t go as planned that year.

Chickenpox didn’t have an immunization shot back then. Parents today are lucky they can avoid this spotty, itchy pain.

In my youth, parents would bring their kids over to a neighbor’s home, just so they would catch chickenpox. I wonder who came up with that brilliant idea.
