It was cold today – yes, apparently I am talking about the weather – but my hot flashes make the cold tolerable, though my floor felt like ice this morning. The hot flash phase of a woman’s life would be a perfect time to visit an ice hotel, though I fear I would melt anything I touch. And I don’t think MKL is too keen on accompanying me. 

Today’s photo is in honor of Dutch, whose story is to be found here:

Dutch loves pink. And even though he’s not mine, I love Dutch. He has survived (so far) where my Tug did not. Please send him prayers and healing juju.


Topsail Beach, North Carolina.

Quote of the Day: “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”  —  Audrey Hepburn
