It is only the first of October and I hear the flu is already running rampant in the area. Knock on wood for good luck that I don’t get it. It is crazy how many strains of the flu are out there. You get the flu shot and still get sick. I don’t know how they keep up with all of it. Momma Said, “I think I will go live in a cave until flu season is over.” If you do feel sick, stay home and don’t spread it around.

We would get sick as kids but I don’t remember anything like what we have today. We would go to the doctor and get a shot of penicillin in the butt and we were as good as new. Now the experts say that antibiotics are harmful to you. I guess it is like everything else that worked when we were growing up, it is obsolete.

Mom gave us Save the Baby and Paregoric, now I don’t’ think either of these medicines are even sold anymore. Now the doctors say just let the sickness run its course. Momma Said, “I bet they don’t have to put up with three or four sick kids at the same time.”

Life is so much fun these days (ha ha) that you just have to sit back and watch it pass by. When you have medicines that are proven to work why get rid of them? It is because some people abuse them and then everyone else has to suffer. Momma Said, “The sins of a few are visited to the lot.”
