Thursday, January 24th, 2008 - The tan is peeling!

Hiya sunburned Bloggy!

Waaaaah! My hard earned tan is peeling big time! As a matter of fact, there are certain parts of me that look like they have leprosy! Ack!! In particular... my hands. Have you ever heard of hands peeling from getting too much sun?? It's never happened to me before... likewise my legs and feet. I have never had them peel like that and when I do peel, it's usually when I get home and my skin goes into shock with the change in temps . Heaven only knows what I'm going to look like when I get home!! Hahahaha!

Well, Peggy took this picture of me today down at the Hale Koa beach. The one thing about getting your picture taken while in the sun, you don't look like you have much of a tan!!

See? It doesn't look like I have much of a tan... but I do! Really! :D But it is peeling and I have to admit that my skin is reacting sooo differently than in past years. Amazing!

Oh, here's a picture that was taken tonight... this shows a bit more of the tan, at least on the face. This picture was taken at California Pizza... yes, we went there again tonight. Joe (gee, can you guess which one is Joe?) is leaving tomorrow, so here he is surrounded by his harem... he should be so lucky!!! :)

In the picture, from left to right is moi in the pink, Marilyn, Peggy and Buddha (Colleen). Joe, of course, is in the middle.

Oh... Chet left a comment on the last blog entry and a couple of you did in email, wanting to see the turtle necklace that I fell in love with. Ok, here is a picture of it, but unfortunately, with the flash, it doesn't show the pink gold... and the chain looks a little thick. It is really a dainty chain and the turtles are very dainty and feminine...

Aren't they just the cutest little turtles?

Oops... now I'm backtracking here. Yesterday (Wednesday), when we were on Waikiki Beach, Peggy and Doug went surfing! Peggy had tried it a few times before, but Doug had never been. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any pictures of them out on the waves on their boards because they are too far away from the shore for the camera to pick them up. But here is a picture of the two of them dressed and ready to go :)

They both had a lot of fun and did really well! Both got up numerous times and rode a wave in... and both have the bruises today to show for it :)

Well, today I was out in the sun most of the day which could explain the "glow" I'm wearing tonight ;) Joe kept telling my my "tan" was red. I told him he was colour-blind .

So, tomorrow is another day, although the weather folk here are still calling for rain on the weekend. Around here, that can mean anything from monsoons to hot sun. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Well, no words of wisdon to part with... I think I'm just going to head to bed with my book and watch David Letterman :)

Hey kid. It sounds like you are making up for missing last year big time. The necklace is so beautiful and so suits you!

Enjoy the rest of your stay (silly comment!) and be careful in that sun!
