Good day sunshine, hello skin cancer:

In the 70's, getting a tan was very important. Some people even used baby oil to "speed up the process"..

I actually remember people using baby oil.

I hated the smell of that stuff..

Tee hee. "Guilty." It was kinda gross and it felt like I was sizzling in the sun with bacon grease all over me. Except baby oil smelled worse.

The first time I spent the day on a real beach in Turkey I got really burned. We were living in a hotel at the time and I kept sending down for vinegar which I put on towels and laid on my burn. I smelled like a salad for days and I think the Turks thought I lost my mind.

Hahaaahaa. Sorry, but... hahaa

I'm surprised I don't have skin cancer. I used to burn like mad when I was a kid and my mother never put sunblock on me...

joe said...

I never used sunblock either. I'm fortunate I didn't get skin cancer, no thanks to mom, that is.
