One year for Christmas, my parents gave me and my sister a book called HITCHHIKING WITH JIMMY MICROBE (1939) By Virginia Budd Jackson. It was the story of a Microbe and his contention with the accumulation of bacteria and germs that invade a human’s body, and personal hygiene.

I’ve been told I had pneumonia right after I was born. It is safe to say I wasn’t born the perfect baby. How did I get pneumonia? I don’t know or at least no one ever told me.

It wasn’t until I was in my middle 30’s that I did anything about it.
