LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Nice photo. Fun poem. The title made me think about Candy Stripers. When I was a kid in the hospital for knee surgery in the late 1960’s, the young women who helped the nurses wore red or pink and white striped uniforms, and they were called Candy Stripers.

I wanted to fit that in the poem somewhere in memory of her, but the title was the most I could manage. So happy you picked up on it.

When I was having all my adolescent medical issues in the late 1960’s all the nurses were women. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yes, it used to be more divided. Still mostly women.
