It seems that an epidemic of ringworm is going around the family. The kids in the household have been shaved nearly bald, starting with the littlest ones and going almost all the way up to the oldest, exposing the tell-tale white patches on their scalps. Also, there has been some vigorous blanket boiling going on. Apparently ringworm is highly contagious. I do not want to find out.
Accordingly, we've been doing all our entertaining out in the yard lately. I itch enough as it is.
