Family Memories from Susan: As a child I suddenly developed a virus of warts all over my hands. Each week, a new one would arrive until I had a total of 38 on my hands and fingers. To no avail, my mother took me numerous times to have them burned off but each time, they slowly reappeared. That summer, my Dad took me for a walk in the fields of Uncle Ed's and Aunt Lottie's farm. As we walked, he told me about various plants and their properties. He stopped and rubbed milk weed on my hands, much to my chagrin. It was gooey and cold but he told me to leave it on, that my warts would disappear. . .and they did! Much to the amazement of everyone . . . everyone but my Dad.
