During episodes of cold weather, Chester Greenwood was cursed with throbbing, aching ears. They would change color when the temperature dipped below freezing.

His ears would first turn pale white, then vivid red and finally blue.

As noted in a previous column, Chester had no trouble doing chores when the weather was above freezing, but once the mercury dropped, he dropped inside to get next to the fire.

This increased his unbearable itch. Chester was allergic to wool, tolerating the itch and the ache.

Tomorrow, we’ll share how Chester Greenwood solved the dilemma.
