Memorial Day ushers in the Summer Season of outdoor activities and, here in Blanco, lots of SUN! Sun mean hot weather. Hot weather brings on the desire to participate in activities that cool the body. Wearing the least amount of clothing acceptable in public brings down the body’s temperature as sweat is dried by the breeze but beware! Too much exposure to sun causes skin damage beyond the “next day” sunburn. The doctors are not kidding when they tell you to use sunscreen, cover up and stay inside during the hottest part of the day. It is better to wear light, loose fitting clothing than run around with your belly button exposed to cancer causing rays. Bare feet! Do not go to the River or walk on our roads with bare feet. Thinly soled rubber soled sandals are just as bad! There is too much broken glass around just waiting to stab the bottom of a foot. Careless beer drinkers fling their empties from car windows and that results in a dangerous situation along our streets and bridges. Please, people, dispose of your empties responsibly!
