I remember the old lady named Mrs. Smith would day those very words when I would feel her cold hands. She also was 85 years old and would say" a little paint on an old barn makes it look better"as she put on lipstick. Yes I had some awesome role models growing up.

@andriaperry I guess I would say you had some awesome role models growing up. I had my grandfather for 14 years and he was a very special man.

@andriaperry So in other words you did not have good role models while growing up. That is too bad.

That’s one of those great ‘old time” sayings that I still use (because I have Reynaud’s so my hands are usually cold).

This is what my grandmother in Italy, both for the cold hands and the lipstick. It seems that we have sayings in common.
