Note to Self

Sunburn on the back of one's knees is a reminder to use sunscreen liberally.

at least it's not the tops of your feet. worst feeling in the world is struggling to get pink or red skin into a pair of combat boots when you get dressed for work monday morning.

Ow! I've done that. To the tops of my feet. Once I fell asleep on the beach with my jeans rolled up to my knees. I had to buy extra-strength hospital-grade sticky burn stuff to put on my legs and feet, and I could barely walk for two days. That was the last time I exposed myself to that much sun for any length of time, and in Florida that's not easy.

Twice in my life I've had sunburn on the backs of my legs so bad that I couldn't walk. Now I respect the healing power of aloe and the preventitive power of sunblock or protective clothes.
