my sunburn - let me show you it.

I'm back from the river. As per usual, I'm going to post a billion pictures, the scenery was great, I stayed in the water as long as I could, and my liver is worse for wear.

What is not usual is the severe sunburn I got (i've had some bad ones, but this takes the cake), the creepy guy that just about ruined my saturday night by refusing to take either hints or blunt statements, and finally pissed me off to the point where I left the group and went home. The creepy guy old enough to be my dad, even. Oh, and the other creepy guy at the Aha Quin "bar" who tried to lick my wrist on the pretense of smelling my perfume, and then tried to convince me that I should let him suck on my toes.

I should just hand out cards explaining exactly how picky i am. anyway, on to the pictures.



My view, Saturday morning. Note the pasty white skin tone, and yes, I was wearing sunblock.



My view Sunday morning. Note the dramatic change in skin tone. this is not comfortable.
Kindly do not note the pudge, and the mismatched bathing suit. It is what it is.



This is the view from my front porch. Not too bad, eh?



A bit of this was done. I cringed. They didn't catch anything anyway.



Toes dragging in the water behind the boat makes me way happy.



Flea seemed to have a good time, though he rarely left the porch. He does like golf cart rides, and, surprisingly, ATC rides.



Me and Flea, all dressed up to go out. I am, anyway. Flea is dressed up to hide under the bed.



Yeah. Nothing lands there anymore.



Well, these do.



Steph, here's the tower you'll be operating from when you come stay with me.



And the runway, in case you had any questions on the quality of our airport.



This, just because i think it's pretty.



People do this to the desert and it just pisses me off. There's almost an unofficial junkyard behind Aha Quin. People used to dump whole mobile homes back there.

So it wasn't the worst weekend ever, for sure. In fact, I may go back this weekend. Or even for most of this week, it's not like I have anything better to do until mid-October.

I think I'll go back when the sunburn fades a bit.

Hey, if it's (mostly) flat, I can land on it.

I'll bring the lawn chair and some signal flags...

Oooo...maybe a lifeguard chair thing would be better. Give me a real sense of authority!

And not only do we need the flashlights, we need orange vests. Preferably with obnoxious reflective tape.

All you need is one of those flatbed/plywood trailer things. I think a co-worker of mine is selling one, actually.

We'll turn it into an international airport yet!

i'm pretty sure the small, unmonitored airstrip not too far from the mexican border has been an international airport at some time in it's existence!

now how are we going to set up a luggage carousel? i can probably find an old merry-go-round on ebay ...

Hah
Oh my gosh, that looks like QUITE the wicked burn! Egads!

Toes dragging in the water... I miss having days like those. It's been forever since I had a real, true, unplugged vacation.

Re: Hah
it's bad. i found some lidocaine gel last night, but it's only helping a little.

and everyone needs a good vacay once in a while.

I'm thinking that after the burn i may end up with a real tan for the first time in years.

you don't even know! it hurts when i breathe on it.

luckily, the kitties are not so bad about jumping on me today. i think they can see the heat waves coming off of my skin.

I am so sorry :(
I've had sunburns that looked like yours~~ the worst part for me was the middle of night shivers ~~ the ones that shake your body and chatter your teeth...
