Itchy and Scratchy




A pox da*n you, you muddy rascal, is that all the comfort you give me?
William Shakespeare’s Henry IV


Well, just when you think you’re covered, turns out you’re not!

All the kids have had the chicken pox vaccine so I was not very concerned about giving anyone in my family chicken pox while I have had the shingles.

It seems that the vaccine needs a booster shot, like around 12 years old according to my pediatricians nurse. Hummm, this would have been good to know, say 4 years ago when B was 12.

So now the boys have a light case of the Chicken pox because their uninformed mother did not get the booster shot for them.

B & G…heretofore known as, Itchy and Scratchy.

it's just the way it goes sometimes, I had CP twice as a child..those are the breaks I guess.

hope you all feel better soon, and I am so sorry to hear you had shingles. I hope you are much better now.
