Dear Aunt Gabby,

  I read recently that if you put Vicks Vaporub on your feet, it will keep you from getting colds.  Did you hear about it?



Dear Inquisitive,

  No, I did not hear about putting Vicks Vaporub on your feet, but I did try it at home and lo and behold, my feet stopped coughing!  It's a miracle!

Yes, Penny, once I put that Vicks Vaporub on my feet, and they stopped coughing, I slept like a baby. Sure did work for me too!

Dear Gisela, Even without knowing me, you love me! LOVE is like maple syrup poured over a big stack of pancakes: It drips all over the plate, runs into your bacon and eggs, slithers onto the table and glues your cup and saucer to the tablecloth, making a horrible mess -------- ooey gooey! But ain't it grand?? Thank you for your support, Gisela and you have a lovely day! Aunt Gabby

I think Aunt Gabby is sniffing the Vicks Vaporub. Someone needs to tell her that feet don't cough!

Dear John, I have to laugh out loud at your sense of humor! I love your response to my Vicks Vaporub issues! So, feet don't cough? Hmmmmm....I'll have to think on that one.... Isn't that better than coughing one's head off? Thank you, John! Aunt Gabby
