    Today is Oct 18 and it is World Menopause Day..........

    let's celebrate by tearing off our clothes and running through the streets when we have a hot flash. I think that would bring some attention to the subject!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't have to because I am making the "Hot Flashes" BOM from Connecting Threads. I can celebrate every month!

    Happy Quilting & Flashing!

    I have officially made it though......LOL (fully clothed, I don't need to be arrested for blinding the entire neighborhood).

    I had it easy, one hot flash in 10 years. And that was after surgery.

    Aunt Flo hasn't shown up on my doorstep in 13 months. No HRT at all, and just a few major mood swings that made the cat blush.

    Hummm, just wonder if I can design a "Hot Flashes" quilt block.
    I think it should have a picture of a woman's face dripping with silvery sweat, a big heart with a nasty look on it's human face, and a lightening bolt heading towards a man who is pointing at a sweaty woman and laughing.

    Wonder if I could patent that for a T Shirt?

    You'd beg me to go put everything back on! LOL After I stood in an unairconditioned engine factory on the production line -- across from a man -- I turned all different shades of red while I had the hot flash! Sweat was rolling off me, and I couldn't get a relief to go cool off. I was soooo embarrassed, but all he said was "My wife's going thru that too!" Oh, boy! That was 6 yrs. ago, but I don't miss the flashes at all!

    One Son In Law's Sister calls them personal summers. Very good way to put it.

    I still have them, not so often, had them about 10-12 Yr.s

    According to our local cupcake shop, it's also National Cupcake Day. Maybe all menopausal women should get free cupcakes.
