Proof of Life.......SKINJACK

He Did It!!!
Hey, it's not so bad........

But then again.......


Nah, it's all good mate!

He had a huge day. First, he played rep soccer for the school, in 30+degree heat. Note the fab t-shirt sunburn. He has a matching shorts-to-sock burn as well. He set up his team's 1st goal. At full-time, the score was 2-all. Golden goal in 10minutes of extra saw SOCCERJACK take a penalty kick, resulting in a goal and win for our boys! They were on the paddock for 2 hours!!!!

It was back to school as normal until ShaveTime! He was the second last one shaved, and unfortunately there was only 1 hairdresser to perform the cutting, so all the younger boys were cut first, then Laura, a female teacher and then blonde, afro-haired Scott. By this time, the bell had rung, and the 800 or so onlookers had gone, leaving Dougie, a teacher and Jack to be shaved without moral support. But what the hey, they continued on. You can see the result; voila...SKINJACK

It was a great afternoon's fundraising for the leukemia foundation. It's estimated that at least $6000 has been raised. Fabulous effort by all!!! And Laura shouldn't be too sad to see her hair gone; she had very safe, straight brown hair that never really did much for her. Her shaved head has revealed a lovely heart-shaped face with amazing, enormous blue eyes. She's a head-turner now; very striking! She has very conservative parents. I expect that as soon as it has grown long enough, it will be very stylishly cut, and will probably not be quite as interesting as it is now.

Then the poor boy went off to work stacking groceries at the IGA store; SHOPJACK

And then......

He and Vegeboy went to a band gig at the Muswellbrook PCYC and had a great time. His head was rubbed a lot, which probably accounts for its red appearance, and the boys danced and sang all night. They're friends with most of the band members, as the acts are all local kids. He laughed and told me that quite a few people didn't recognise....MOSHJACK.

Hot, red, tired, and blistered, after I'd photographed him, he went off to bed. He has to work in the morning and be ..THRIFTY-LINKJACK...

But right now he's..........SLEEPYJACK!!

See you all again,

Love from the mother of a lovely young man

Goodnight and good dreams ;-D

Nice looking guy! He is very white though! I used to live and work in Hawaii and I learned that if you are way white (like me and Jack) take 2 aspirin 1 hour before going in the sun and you will not burn as much. Also, for sunburn take 2 aspirin and dissolve in a cup of water. Take a gauze or paper towel and dip in the solution and apply to the burned area. It works like a charm. Takes the heat out and the pain away. It has to be aspirin nothing else will work. He will need to put lots of sunscreen on, especially his head! LOL There goes the nurse in me again! Sorry!

Thanks, Poody. In this great sunburned land of Oz, this is the first time that I've ever heard that aspirin is good for the prevention of sunburn, and the relief afterwards. I guess it kind of makes sense, though; we use aspirin for so may different things. We have the highest incidence of suncancer in the world here.......
