My cats.

I personally find dry heat much less objectionable than humid heat. When you sweat (sorry, perspire), it actually does some good. My temperature comfort range is much wider where it's dry. I do tan, and I regard wrinkles as character marks.

Character is generally more acceptable on men than on women.Wink

Goodness yes.
I can totally tolerate dry heat. I hate wet cold, though.

Now see when it's cold and wet I just love it-I put on soft sweaters and bake bread and make stews and cinnamon-ie desserts to have with hot tea, and go out in my rain boots and umbrella and parka to walk around in it. Nothing makes me happier than a good cold snap with drizzle. Grin

You wouldn't like it on a motorcycle! But I like cold and wet occasionally. It sounds great during August in Texas! But I get tired of it in a hurry.

Ugh, I'm with ya on the heat thing - I hate it. The DH just returned home tonight from Yuma, AZ where it was 113ºF yesterday. ACK! I would have died. Give me the cold any day, although not quite as cold as Minnesota, say. I like snuggling up under sweaters too, and that fleece type stuff (forget now what it's called) - and another benefit is that it makes it difficult for anyone to tell by looking just what size I am. Pfft

I hide from the sun - it's bad for the skin. A little exposure each day is good, for the vitamin D, but otherwise it's too damaging. My mother had skin cancer, my dad was treated for pre-skin cancer, and now I have pre-skin cancer that I'm being seen for, and am a little concerned about. When I was young and was such a sun-worshiper we didn't have all these warnings about protecting our skin from sun damage that we have now, it was all about using the best sun tanning oils on the market.

Give me the cool, drizzly Pacific Northwest any day (says she who lives in the desert Sad ).

LOL Catman-I don't ride motorcycles!

Patia-I have to get my moles checked every couple of years. Considering I have hundreds of them, this understandably takes a while. I've had some removed and so far they've all tested negative, but as the only fair skinned redheaded child in a family of bronzed blondes and olive skinned brunettes I suffered a fair number of sunburns as a child so I'm always concerned about it. I have a lot of sun damage on the left side of my face and nose because of where the sun hits me when I drive as well. You don't think about these things when you're young.

I don't even have the red hair any more, just the complexion! Angry

Sad I'm skert of going to the dermatologist Schmoo! Yikes!

Let's post more critter pics everybody!! That'll take my mind off of it (at least a little bit Wink Sorry 'bout the major thread derail everyone.).

FreakMeow: I made the link clickable. Nice photos, but they indulge in the cutesy misspellings far too much for my taste.;blackcat;

My Maggie

These are some pictures of Maggie, taken when I was going on a trip and had taken out a suitcase to pack. It is beneath cats, of course, to beg, so this was kitty language for 'No mummy, please don't go - I will not let you go.'

Aunt Patia I gave my furry babies hugs and smooches from you and then promptly slobbered all over them from me Grin Awww Maggie looks so sweet. She was protesting her human Mom & Dad leaving her. Not to worry she will take over your bed while you're gone.

FreakMeow those were cute pictures. Thanks for sharing. Here's two that made me laugh out loud. I still haven't finished look at all of them yet.

Catman, I like the pictures with correct english spelling too. Changing the misspelling can be done since CD helped me with that and photobucket now has better edit options avialable.

Sinny: I like those a lot! They are much better when not loaded down with cutesy spelling. I especially like the first one.

Hypatia: The 'Kit-Kat' one made me feel sorry for the kitten, who was not happy. If it wasn't Photoshopped, I wouldn't be surprised if the kitten took a chunk out of the baby immediately after.
