I agree I've MS (Multiple Sclerosis), since 1998 and I can not tolerate hot temps, inside and out. I also get tired and worn out easily. Grumbling Thumbs down

Glad you were ok that one winter day that you mentioned above. Group hug Thumbs up

Good lord! All this talk about OA and being Ancient reminds me of wise old Yoda. If drdawg did not use his own image on his avatar, well...
