|This is the biggest fish I caught in the river. We had to return it to the water. It was 26 inches - too big to keep!|
One night while watching TV next to each other, Don rubbed my leg and out of nowhere said, “What are these spots on your leg?” I said, “I’m getting freckles!” I’ve always wanted freckles and have noticed that in the past few years I can see some on my arms and hands and on my legs! I love being in the sun and that is how you get freckles, right? Anyway, I know that they are “age” spots and that people would say that I should use sunscreen. I am always careful not to get sunburned, and being Cuban it doesn't happen very often. I had osteoporosis and now I don’t. I take medication and have made a conscious effort to get my vitamin D from the sun. Now that I am retired, I try to be out in the sun for around half an hour on the days that I can. I take calcium and a multivitamin and do my walking and exercises. I am going to enjoy the sun and my freckles. I will use sunscreen when I am a long time at the beach and when fishing but am not going to get upset about some beautiful freckles!
Don't worry about me. I plan to stay healthy for all the things that I want to do for myself, my family, and whatever God wants me to do for a long time!
