A dogs average body temperature is between 101 and 102 degrees. Get yourself a small dog and teach it to go to bed with your wife. Your wife and the dog will both be happy.  :smilewink:

Your not going to win the battle unless you fight dirty. Get her an electric blanket and she will be beaming with joy--once she's sleeping unplug it.

Just wait...she will be setting with a blanket over her legs and all of a sudden throw the blanket off and say "I'm hot"!

I will say "Good", and she says, "not that kind of hot"!

 

Those hot flashes are really rough on a guy!

At least my wife went down and put wood and the fire while I was gone last night, give her credit for that. I was worried though when I got home, oil funace was running.....just too cold in that old farm hosue with no insulation for the wood burner to keep it at 70*

 

 

Sweatshirt and robe.....should've told her to then go grab a blanket :thumbs:  :D

It's the opposite here. If I'm not doing physical work I get cold real easy. My wife likes the house at 18C 64F max. That's a bit too cool for me.

ha ha ha  its a battle you cant win, my house was cold one morning and I realized it was a short or some sort in the thermostat wire, I had a new programmable one that I had never installed so I disconnected the one on the first floor at the furnace and installed the new on in the basement, set it to 72 and all was well, now before I could change out the wiring I noticed my wife going to the old disconnected thermostat, turning the heat up, then later going back and turning it down because she was hot, I left it like that for a few days and just watched, she would be playing with that thing all day, too hot, too cold, too hot. when I told her it was disconnected for the last week she was mad at me! go figure
