Careful Now...You'll peel!

As we enter the middle to end of the summer...About two thirds of the way through, more like.... One only has to look around whilst on the way to work or walking the dog , or even as one ogles the women as they sunbathe on the beach...I say ogle, I mean to say study, yes that's it, study the female form purely for artistic reasons... Probably three quarters of the way through when I think about it.... The one thing that sticks out the most is the different skin types. You have your olive skinned .."ooh, I just spam myself in Trex, wrap up in aluminium foil , (or aluminum for our Amercan friends) & just go brown without burning", types. You have the.."I need to be careful so I have to use factor 4 diluted with lighter fuel" who go a lovely warm beige. At the end of the scale there's me with my fair Irish skin. I need to apply factor 50 sunblock, pop on a duffle coat then apply a liberal coat of Sandtex Smooth masonry paint over the top.... Three fifths of the way as the nights are just starting to draw in..... Cornish Cream is a lovely colour (or color as our merican friends spell it) but I wouldn't recommend it for a suntan top coat on your duffle coat. Nice, though, on a dwarf wall conservatory. To summarise.....(or summerize as this f**king Amezrican spell checker reckons it spelled)... I burn like a tw*t! I've done a drawing, ain't I?...


  1. That was a very informative article Mr Mahoney, especially useful to any Gingers that may be reading this blog.

  2. Yes, I agree, Leonard. Alternatively, if you're going to have red hair, make sure it's fake. Works for me - I very rarely get burnt.
