I am busy making a big carbon foot print so when I am gone, folks will notice.

Before you all get angry at me remember, I was a professional forester for over 20 years. LOL

Wanna get upset and someone, get upset with Calif and their massive forest fires. The burning trees are releasing all that stored up carbon.

Calif, in general, was in favor of 'let it burn'. That is until it threatens houses etc. By then, it costs even bigger bucks to put it out.
They were/are not in favor of 'controlled' or "prescribed" burns to eliminate the undergrowth to reduce the damage of a wild fire.

Talk to the cows. This was another of Calif complaints.

This just seems so counterintuitive to me, living in wet western WA where the sun is a rare treat compared to like Texas. I wonder what other factors are involved, or is it a factor of our normally wet skin being more susceptible to a burn than those more used to the sun? I don't get it. I will say I have personally known two guys my age who had melanoma and died from it. Both worked out of doors as shipwrights as did I for nearly 30 years. And as you surmise, possibly the numbers are largely taken from eastern WA where the weather is more like NV or TX, but neither of those states are high in skin cancer on the chart! Makes no sense.

Its become so common now as to be acceptable to most. Oddly some of the biggest culprits of this are older gents, 70 and up. A few years ago my daughter had a boyfriend over for dinner, and of course he had his stupid hat on. I asked him if his head was cold. Everyone looked at me with zero comprehension. Finally my wife explained it, he took his hat off.

It makes perfect sense once you factor in all those immigrant Californians.

If your daughters boyfriend is an older gent, 70 and up, how old are you? How old is she?

LOL, two starkly different examples... That one is down the road and she ended up marrying a fella from north of the border and now living in Nanaimo!

I haven't seen or heard a hair spray commercial on TV in years.
Wifey B: I've never used hair spray and none of the females in our extended family do. Our salons discourage the use of spray and only use natural sprays that won't harm the hair. Number one goal is healthy hair. Alice and Rachel, who run things, are very pro-natural.

Or move his plate to the outside.

In my case, if I take my hat off, I better put in the assigned and usual place or I will never find it again.

Doncah hate it when you are looking for something and forget what you were looking for? Not to worry, chances are you will stumble across something else you were looking for.

I have discovered if I verbalize it or better yet write it down, if you can remember where you put the paper and pencil, you can carry the note with you as you look for the item, unless you set it down and then it's another problem, where did I leave the note.

Of course, they say, if you sit down and get comfortable, the pressure on your butt will force the name of the item, back into your memory and presto you will remember.
There is the other option, grab both of your butt cheeks and squeeze real hard to force the item back into your memory.
The key here is not to let other folks see you squeezing your butt cheeks, they might think you are nutz. lol Ah the joys of growing old. You have learned you dont care what folks think about you anymore. Wandering around the house, squeezing your butt cheeks, mumbling to yourself with a post-it stuck to your forehead as you are looking for your glasses. Now, what was I looking for? Ah my glasses.

I don't know why everyone makes fun of this... it's no more dopey than a Giligan hat or some others I've seen. You look good in it.

The days backpacking at high altitude above timberline (with a hat) as well as spending lots of time in the open cockpit of a sailboat (without a hat) scare me. Now "hide" in the pilothouse. Also, now when expecting extended hours outdoors, wearing a hat with long-sleeve shirt and full-length pants.

French Foreign Legion caps

After more protection but prefer a cap, the French Foreign Legion cap,as worn in North Africa, with its drop down flaps covering the back of the neck, and I think the ears, might work. The ball kids at our major tennis matches wear them.
( We call them ball kids because boys and girls volunteer. But only the boys would have...never mind.)

Was at dinner on Friday and saw a guy sitting at a table talking. He was wearing a baseball hat and.....he had his elbows on the table. So I shot him.
