IS IT A COLD OR THE FLU????

I had a tough night.

I woke up sweating and chilled at the same time!

Not hormones because I am on the patch.

Could it be a cold?

I feel stuffy and achey. My head hurts too.

I haven't had a cold since last year.

I decided that the germ wash that I was using to wash my hands was drying them out so...Foolishly...I put it away.

I bought the Dove for softer hands.

NOW, I probably am getting a cold OR the FLU!!

IT IS A COLD...I TELL YOU...

A COLD...

IT IS NOT THE FLU, NOT THE FLU, NOT THE FLU!!!!!

ONLY A SIMPLE COLD....YEAH, THATS IT, A COLD!

WAIT....I don't have time for a cold right now. I am busy with getting ready for a trip.

I am NOT getting sick...

I AM NOT getting sick.

Well...

I'm glad that I have taken care of that little problem!

YES....SWIM SUIT SEASON IS OVER!!!!!

THE PICTURE IS OF EAST BEACH IN SANTA BARBARA

 

Thank goodness that swimsuit season is over!

But alas, I must take a swimsuit on our family cruise in October. I will cover up as much as possible. Only taking off my cover up when I drop quickly to the lounge chair.

Thinking of putting on a swim suit again made me think of a beach experience in Santa Barbara.

Here it is .....

I'm enjoying my last visit to the beach in Santa Barbara this morning.  I leave for home in Ohio tomorrow morning.

Ohio is a place where people cover their bodies...even in the summer.

I Like It There!!!

I arrived at the beach with several things that would make me feel at home there.

I brought so many things that I needed a horse and buggy to take me to my spot where I could critique the beach babes and guys in action.

My place was set up and I began to scope the action of the under 30 something's.

What a sight to see from these eyes. Where do they get all that energy????

Beach volleyball is big here and I watched as the under 30 something's bounced around like they were on a trampoline and batted the white ball back and forth.

I just knew that the under 30 something females would surely lose their skimpy swim suits but they kept them on. Only by some higher power, I'm sure.

At the other end of the beach, many of the under 30 crowd were lifting surfboards high on their heads as they rushed to the water to catch a wave.

Don't these people ever walk anywhere?

Then, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted several other Over 50 something's sitting under umbrella's, dressed in turtle neck cover-ups watching the under 30 something's too.

Could it be that we are reliving our youth as we watch all that energy run up and down the beach?

NAWWWWW!

I never had a body like that or could play volley ball or surf..

I'm just the beach critic for the under 30 crowd of Santa Barbara.

Hey girl...watch where you are walking in those tall shoes!!! Does your Mother know that the bottom half of your swim suit is too small and stuck up your **##**???   Funny, I don't think she even saw me..... she sure kicked up a lot of sand with those tall shoes.

The over 50 something males watched as she sauntered by. Their heads were spinning around like Linda Blaire in that scary movie...  They will need heart care soon because........

Here comes another one just like the other one!!!

THE SMELLS OF OLD AGE

I woke up with a back ache, left side...

Now, I smell like Icy Hot because I slathered it all along my back side.

I have that "old Lady smell" today.

At night..I have the Vicks vapor rub smell. YEP, definitely old Lady.

What is happening to me?

I used to smell of soft perfume and now..........

I can't wear a perfume strong enough to cover the smell of Icy Hot and Vicks vapor rub!

But hey...it works. I'm not trying to win a smell contest today. If I did enter a smell contest for old ladies...I would win hands down!
