Heck, when I was a kid and doodled pictures with crayons, as certainly most kids tend to do, I always grabbed the yellow crayon to color the sun. I
guess it would be instructive to see what color grade school aged kids now color the sun as when they draw it and compare those pictures with ones
kids drew 50 years ago.
Honestly, I don't know whether it IS old age telling on me (I'm 61) or what, but standing out in the bright sunlight my skin feels like I have a 100
watt bulb just inches from my skin. When the wife and I were younger, we used to lay out on the beaches here in Florida and sunburn only took place
after HOURS of laying in the direct sun without flipping over to expose other parts of your body. We used to go directly into a tan, and never worried
much about sun BURN. Heck, now, in less than an hour in direct sun, without sunblock, you WILL get a sunburn. I NEVER used to wear a hat, but I
certainly do now, otherwise my face and will become beet red in pretty short order. Matter of fact, I can only remember once in my life getting a
sunburn as a kid and I was outside ALL of the time.
