A Dose of Medicine.

I had a dose of medicine this morning that lifted my spirits to the moon. My grandson and lovely bride and their beautiful little blonde haired girls came to see me. It was such a joy to have them. Only if I had a little bit of their energy. Worked better than any pill I've ever taken. Thanks kids for making me feel so well.

I grew up in a large family and our medicine cabinet, if we had on, consisted of Sam salve, turpintine, iodine, castor oil, and a few other things that slip my mind. If you had to swallow castor oil once you would get well quickly. Thank goodness we were a healthy bunch of kids. There were no obese children in my family. We worked hard and ate what we grew on the farm. Our diet was mostly vegetables from the garden. You can't do any better than that.

There were two doctors in our little town, and they surely didn't get rich from doctoring us. Other than delivering a baby once in a while. That didn't happen often because the rest of the babies we attended by mid-wives. We were a lucky or healthy bunch.

  1. I don't remember going to the doctor so much as a child either. Only for problems with tonsils. I still have them at 64 years old. No problem anymore! Thank goodness.
