This slightly gross looking and itchy
I must have brushed against some poison ivy during my recent trips to the C&O Canal (stories here and here). I do remember seeing, and ignoring, some small poison ivy plants while taking pictures. I have no idea how the poison (urushiol) of the poison ivy went thru my shoe and sock and ended up between my toes. Benadryl cream seems to help relieve the itching.
If the Black Death don't come knocking, I am expecting full recovery within a week or so.
I took the above picture while holding and operating the camera in my left hand. First, I didn't think I could do it, but it ended up being not too difficult.
Incidentally, according to this article, there were 13 human plague cases in the United States in 2006.
