Had three pre-cancerous growths taken off by the doctor yesterday. Careful out there when in the sun. The Doc is a flyfisherman and he recommended BullFrog sunblock. I did not want to go the doctor because I thought the spots
looked like liver spots. Not to scare anyone but keep covered up and use sunblock. :smokin: FishHawk

:cool: Just be sure you wear dark glasses, and sun blocker. Took me about 60 years to learn my lesson, Still suffering afteralmost 3 months, my face is numb from my eye socket to my ear. Protect yourself from the sun especially around the salt water.

John glad you caught the problem early . Wouldn't want anything to happen to my friend the Iron Man.
Hope to see you the show on Saturday if you are there.
