RE: weather


I don't tan at all in the sun myself.  In college, I was described as "sink
white," and when I nearly passed out during freshman initiation, they
thought I'd go to transparent too!  LOL!!!  I have burned only a couple of
times mostly because, like you, I avoid high sun times.   

Today is very pleasant here.  It is 66 F. this morning and only to go to the
80's.  What a relief!  Here is hoping you get some relief from your high
heat as well, Theresa.

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

Hi Bonnie- yes, I fry to a crisp. In winter, I'm almost transparent.  
Irish, Norwegian and Swedish genes don't lend themself to tanning!  I just
stay out of the sun when it is this hot.
