It has been the coldest, wettest and windiest spring that I can remember.

Usually by November we are looking at mild sunny days with the occasional day of rain and wind----but this year it has been the other way around.
Eastern Australia is still having storms and floods.

But suddenly it's December and in Central Australia Summer has just appeared---and with summer the warnings have started.
Wear a hat
Wear sunglasses
Wear lightweight clothes with long sleeves.
Wear sunscreen
And make sure with children and those adults who cannot apply it to themselves, that you assist in the application of sunscreen

Now that is all good and well but there are times when you really don't want to assist people to apply sunscreen.

Of course there are those sun worshipers who just cant help themselves---and as soon as the sun is out, they want to lay out in the sun to get a tan.

Some people are lucky to have a pigmented skin and don't tan or burn as quickly as those with a pale skin---but they do burn.
A friend of mine has red hair and very fair skin and seems to break out in freckles before she starts to tan.
Personally, I am not going to lay out in the sun to bake and change my skin tone.

And of course the skin cancer warnings are out there again.
Check your spots, check your moles and if anything has a drastic change of colour or size, go and get it checked.

But I have one more warning for all of the guys.

If you are at the beach or near a pool or anywhere where there is a "young lady" sun baking---and you don't know her----and she asks you if you would mind rubbing some sunscreen into her exposed body parts----THINK----use your big brain, not that little one hidden away in your board shorts---THINK---
Do I know this girl ?
Would my partner like me doing this ?
Why would this girl want my hands on her body?

Seductive Lady

It would most certainly frighten me

Macy said...

AAAAAK! OMG Presumably that bit of gristle is for the chop soon?
Why does that not make me feel better?

Clyde said...


It frightens me---it's summer and the bikini girls are out on the beach---but are they girls.
I feel dirty looking at the young teenagers but am I looking at guys--No no no---I'll go blind

Clyde said...


Exactly my thought--
I would be running a mile

LOL! I couldn't guess at the punchline at first ;-)

Clyde said...


You may laugh but it would be the most frightening sight to a guy who was expecting something else

clyde: I don't ask stangers to put sun screen on me. Oh no no no. usually guys stare and don't think we can see though we look like we have our eyes closed behind sunglasses but we see.

I don't mind if they long as they don't bother us or ask for autographs.

I don't usually go out in the sun without alone.

Ciao honey. xxx

I will be thinking about this all day...

And you did warn me, didn't you?!



Clyde said...

Miss Jones

Well, I cant blame them for staring---But I dont think you have any bits to shock

Clyde said...


Sorry, I did warn you

Dutch donut girl said...

OMG! I didn't expect that.
A she-man or shemale.

Thank you for leaving your funny comments on my blog.

No, I'm not back to blogging (yet) I'm (still too) busy with writing a dissertation.

Btw, I haven't been sending you those crazy emails, but I have been getting weird emails from you. I don't open them.
I know it's not really you who are sending them. Weird.

Clyde said...


Oh, it is good to see you---and oh, we are seeing more of you in your new photo---oooheee.

I hope things are going well for you and that we see you back soon

Well in the UK we're headed into winter now so it's nice to hear that it's warming up somewhere...although I'm sure come British summer time that image will still be in my head! Brilliant Friday afternoon giggle:)

Clyde said...


Now tell the truth--
Is there ever a real summer season in the UK where people get their bodiies out in the sun

Just telling it like it is said...
