James Bond Shower

Chilling cold water. We find ourselves shivering with discomfort and anger when taking a cold shower by accident, but this may actually be advantageous to our health. Turning the temperature down to very cold, referred to as a “Scottish or James Bond Shower”, at the end can provide surprising benefits for your body and skin. Are you ready, Mr. Bowie?

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

  1. EEEK! Maybe on a SUPER hot day. Mr. Bowie looks like he is enjoying the sun and would appreciate a cold drink of water but a cold shower might “ruin the moment” !! Happy Tuesday Mr. Bowie and Herman…….

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

  2. Heb jij het nieuws niet gehoord? Da`s ni gezond he, belastend voor je ❤ .
    Meng er maar snel wat warm water onder en vergeet zeker niet de na-foto te posten 😉 .

    • Deed me denken aan de Ardennen-jaren met mijn broer. Wij hadden een buiten-douche en dat was in de zomer kei-plezant om te douchen. Maar we warmden het water soms wel een beetje op… 😉
      Bowie komt altijd aan ‘den teut’ drinken als ik aan ‘t gieten ben. Heel grappig…

  3. I agree with One Spoiled Cat. Maybe on a very hot day I might use the James Bond method of showering. On a frigid January morning? No way!

    Give Bowie a little tummy rub for me. How much better can life with a nap (unlike Bond, he likes his on the rocks) and beautiful sun rays?

    • Hi Mary! A nap, beautiful sun rays, ice cream, espresso and treats for Mr. Bowie… Isn’t life grand? 😉

    • Hi Nia! Glad you liked this post. I prefer hot water for a shower, just like my espressos… 😉

    • Thank you, Sarah! And he’s so happy spring finally arrived. Mr. Bowie loves being outside in the warm sunshine…

  4. Enjoy your “hot shower and your hot espresso” Herman and Mr Bowie continue to enjoy the sunshine “baths” Louise and her 3 cats: Léa, Ti-Garcon et Toute P’Tite xxx

  5. Ah Herman unexpected cold is nastybut unexpected too hot is dangerous. I myself hate cold showers but in the sticky humid heat we have in Virginia in summer a tepid shower works better (not really cold, just cool). I hope you didn’t need a plumber. The cats send Mr. Bowie greetings and agree he is smart to stick with sun bathing.

    • Hi Angela! I don’t like cold showers but once in a while I try to turn down the hot water… for a few seconds… 😉
      Hope you’re having a wonderful day. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

  6. dood….we think we will forgetz de b.a.t.h.e. and ore showerz all two gether !!!!!! we sure likez ta drinkz R waterz and play in waterz…but other N that !!!!!!!! 🙂 😉 ♥♥

    • Mr. Bowie likes playing in the water and playing outside when it’s raining. I prefer to stay indoors with a hot espresso and dark chocolate (of course)…
      Hope you’re having a wonderful day, my friends. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

  7. Eeep! As James would say, “shocking, pawsitively shocking” (Goldfinger) Me thinks that might be an invitation for tummy rubs in the sunshine and not for a cold shower 😀 Great photo of Mr Bowie Herman ❤ x Boomdee

    • Hi there, my dear Boomdee! Glad you liked this post. You are so right; Mr. Bowie got his tummy rubs and not a cold shower… 🙂
      Afterwards we stayed outside and had human and cat treats…

    • Hi David. What a coincidence… we followed your advice and had ice cream later that evening… 🙂

    • Hi there, my dear friend! Thank you so much for hanging around HoB all this time!
      Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

    • Haha, we fully agree with you. Unfortunately, I don’t like whiskey, I prefer wodka and Mr. Bowie goes for cool fresh water from the tap…

    • Thank you so much for this wise advice, my dear friends!
      Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

    • No no no… the only cold thing he gets is vanilla ice cream! 😉
      Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend, Julie!

  8. Mr. Bowie looks like he is really enjoying himself, Herman! Tell him it is in the low 80s today, sunny and warm here. The cats and crew send you both our collective best. 🙂

    • Hi Lavinia! We had a great time outside and enjoyed the warm sunshine… So glad we’re finally heading for summer!
      Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards to the cats and the crew!

  9. Hi, Herman and Bowie. I’ve been told that rotating hot and cold water stimulates the thyroid… But the way it was described to me would make for a very long shower.
    Somehow I doubt Mr Bowie would like it either way! 😊
    Happy Caturday.

    • Hi Teagan! I think you are right, I’m sure Mr. Bowie isn’t interested in trying this one out… 🙂
      Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

  10. I’m enjoying today. Finally that orange ball in the sky has come out. You know the one that thing I think they call sun. It’s in the 80’s and I’m loving it finally able to wear short sleeve t shirt, shorts and no coat or boots. Yeah!! I hate cold showers. Something tells me you do too. Have a Great Weekend.

    • No cold showers for me, and Mr. Bowie of course…!! Sounds like spring finally arrived in your part of the world. We are having sunny and hot days so we are also enjoying ice cream!
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
