Funny Cards.  Hot flash!!

Do you remember old aunt Julie In a hurry she opened all the windows Even in the middle of the winter, rain or storm She suddenly needed to have fresh air Breathed like a whale The face changed color Her cheek, ear and throat became deep red Talked louder than normal She was a comic figure We were just young children did not understand The years go by ... we are there ourselves Hormonal hot flashes I'm smiling by the old memories Aunt Julie's advice was; No estrogen supplements or pills ... but ... ...... Ice cold champagne ...... 04.08.2017 - Sun :) - A-L Andresen :) - Copyright © All Rights Reserved

I dont drink though, so maybe for ladies like Aunt Julie, fans and open windows would have to suffice. A very funny take on the dreaded "Hot Flushes" !! Thanks for the laugh Anne-Lise...Maria xxx

What a wonderful advice aunt, Julie has given but could I have the champagne even if I do not belong to the same sex? Haha! Beautifully written my dear, Anne-Lise. Note: Her advice seems to be good but...expensiv. Don't you think? Haha. Hugs!
