Yes, ladies and gentlemen, after spending yesterday afternoon volunteering at the Keesler Air Force Base air show, Larry the Cable Guy might be the only human being in America with a neck that's more red than mine currently is. To borrow a line from Baz Luhrmann. . .
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience.
Yeah. . .get THAT out of your heads, ladies and gentlemen. And while you should feel free to use sunscreen, you should feel free to check out these links while you try to rid your mind of this song.
