It's summer! Yea!
I'd like to think the chairs are empty because people
have learned, at long last, that basking in the summer sun
like a roaster chicken is not good for one's health.
Not only does it result in prematurely aged skin (think raisins and prunes),
one runs the real risk of developing some horrible skin cancers.
Please use an effective sunscreen,
applied liberally and often,
on yourself and your babies.
As for the babies, DO NOT take your eyes off them
when you have them at the pool.
Make certain they are wearing the proper life jackets
and provide swimming lessons for them.
It goes without saying that you already know how to swim, right?
