Ok, so how in the world do I get a sunburn by sitting in the shade? I saw my face, arms and and chest but this morning I was looking at some splotches on my ankle and my legs have a line where my capris were..... I suppose this means sunblock anytime I go out?????? Even in the shade?????

 

We did two days of yard sales and yes, I was outside but....  I sat in the SHADE!  I moved way before the sun got to me to AVOID this!  Color me confused... (ummmm red ;-)

Hi Cheryl


Even when you think you are in the shade sometimes the sun will find you. Was it windy while you were out there? Yes you should wear sunscreen even in the shade in the summer time.
