  1. My grandmother used Gentian Violet in her ears.. Less visual but still worthy of note. She was an avid gardener and loved violets. As a child, Gentian Violet was just part of her mystique.

    Who knew that her great-granddaughter would also claim it?

  2. Later: I asked my mother about the purple ears. Seemed an odd thing for a lady to be sporting back in the day. She said it was inside the ear. Great grandmother’s hair covered it.
