In praise of hot flashes

I've spent most of my life being cold.  Now, I've reached the age when I have hot flashes, and I just love them, especially in winter.  I'll often wait inside until a hot flash hits, then run outside to do some chores.  The feel of the icy air on my skin is exquisite--something I never thought I'd say.

Today, I saw Monty waiting near the well, which is his way of asking for a drink, so I went out to give him some water.  This is a job that Floyd always does with me.  He likes me to throw the last bit of water in the bucket for him so he can chase and bite it.

I carried a drink to Monty...

but it seems he really only wanted a kiss!


  1. I don't even have snow, yet I need a turtleneck, t-shirt, sweatshirt and jacket..... have fun in the snow.

  2. awww - horse kisses! Hot flashes have their upside as well! Glad you found yours.

  3. If we could only find a way to harness all that "hot flash" power....
