Except for the last 2 of 6 children, we were all born at home and I never even saw a doctor until I went into the military at age 20 so the home remedies must have worked. LOL<quoted text>
I learn something every day. It's no wonder that the children didn't get sick from the "cure." The tape on the hiney was only a diagnostic method used by moms before stool specimens were sent to the doctor for analysis. After the pin worms were discovered, there was a medicine that the children took (certainly not shine or white lightenin) as we called it back in the day.
The sun came out and Dog and I just got back from a 1 1/2 mile hike, now time for our nap. Good day.
