Awww...thanks for thinking of me!  Actually it's not too bad today, and I slept okay last night.  But, again....hard to apply to the back on my own!!  I can only reach so far.  The rest of my puny little white body is pretty good.  My chest is a little red, but not bad.  And it will all turn brown....I'm lucky that way!

I am the same way. I burn easily but it turns into a tan quickly.

Must be nice. I'm a burn and peel and repeat person, sometimes in the summer I can get my tan all the way to normal skin tone if I'm lucky.

You must be naturally fair skinned....red head, or blonde?  My Dad was a red head...my Mom had dark brown hair.  Fortunately I got Mom's skin......sortof.  I also got "porcelain skin" from her, so I get bruises really easily.  And my face shows a lot of veins.  Thanks Mom!  :D  But man, do I turn brown in the summer!!


Swedish/Norwegian here. I burn in about an hour in the sun. Shortly after I will start to blister. Then it peels.

Vikings ain't known for their great tans.

tigerose: So, my boys play badminton when the weather is cooperative, and today I bought them a new supply of birdies..why do I want to giggle like a little girl when I see "Shuttlecocks"? I must admit it's the only bird I will let Eli "get"..made him drop one yesterday!


Today is our 7th Anniversary. Copper and wool were the choices (I can't remember which is traditional and which is modern). Mrs. Buck got me a copper rooster  :)   I got her a copper-bottomed saucepan and also drilled holes through 2 pennies, an '02 (year we met) and an '06 (year we wed) for her keychain.

The news is calling for thunderstorms tonight, and maybe tomorrow too. Just did a "hippy-dippy weatherman" check, and it looks like it "might" happen! With my luck, it will split across the valley and go north and south of me. POUT! I NEVER get a good thunderstorm!!! Of course the ones we have here in the great pacific northwest are really puny compared to the ones in the mid-west, which is just fine with me! :D

I've had students ask me to not wear skirts because the ghostly white legs were distracting during my lecture. Many people claim I'm the palest person they've seen. :( But, hubby has learned to describe my skin tone as "alabaster" instead of "pasty white." Yes, he's a keeper.

D'awwwww..... you're a good man!


I try. I help out with housework. I come straight home from work (other than stopping on the way home to visit my 90 y/o parents for 10 or 15 minutes). I don't chase other women. I try not to spend frivolously, other than keeping bourbon and beer in the house and purchasing the occasional fine piece of cutlery, neither of which are frivolous, right? And she's the same, including the not chasing other women part, and substitute Diet Mountain Dew for booze and novels for cutlery.


Love her to pieces.

In case you missed it, the Geek tab has an awesome link to a BBC story that shows domestic cats' daily travels using GPS and tiny cameras. There's a link that lets you choose a single cat from the many that were tracked and see a 24 hour time lapse of where they went! Looks like 6 or 7 options to watch.
