Just because I’m a woman and not a teenager doesn’t mean I can’t go out and have a little adventure and fun!
The guys admit to driving off in their four-wheeler trucks to see the flood waters that’s pouring over the streets. They try to find the deeper spots and see if they can get their truck across.
I just take a walk in the rain and walk across some puddles to take a couple pictures and people say,”What is she doing out in the rain? Is she crazy!”
I have always loved taking walks in the rain or snow. I bundle up and go! Cold doesn’t make you sick. California isn’t even cold in the valley when it rains. At least, it wasn’t cold yesterday when I was out in it. Oh, yes, it was certainly raining and I got wet. But I changed into dry clothes when I got home and was fine.
I never was a woman’s libber, but it irritates me that guys can go out, do things and everyone thinks it is fine and dandy. But if I, a woman, take a walk in the rain, it is scandalous and embarrassing.
I don’t want to put myself in danger, but I like to live a little. I love nature, pictures and long walks. Just because I’m no longer a kid or I’m not a brawny man does not mean I should stay locked up in a house or office all day.
I implore all you older women out there, live a little! Get out and do something exciting and fun. Don’t shrivel up in a little ball somewhere. Neither water nor cold will hurt you! It will actually invigorate you and make you feel alive.
Don’t put your self at risk crossing deep swift water or something. Be sensible, but get out there and explore the world around you! Its wonderful and exhilarating. It is so much better than watching it on television.
