Now I’m not telling you this to be braggin’ on the great weather we are having here in the Valley or anything like that. I just want to make this clear from the git-go. But darn if we aren’t having some GREAT weather!
Unfortunately, this poses a problem for me. As I’ve told you we work four days and then have four days off. Well, on those work days I’m outside 99.99% of the time. In the sun. Because I could possibly pushing a lawn mower, using a weed whacker, walking through a field or any number of other reasons, I must wear shoes and socks. Not to the extreme of steel toed shoes or anything, but a pair of sneakers and socks.
I’ve noticed a slight tan line around the top of my socks and this does not make me a happy camper. As soon as I get home at eleven o’clock I tear those shoes and socks off, slip into a pair of flip flops and go outside for a while to give my feet a chance to catch up on the tanning from the morning.
I’m so afraid I’m going to end up like a friend of ours who had a definite tan line problem going on, wouldn’t you say?
