Re: Sunburn COMMENT Thread

@Nancy1340 - thanks! Please check your PMs. @FlashDaddy - as I pondered your response, I decided that your point on an old man climbing the mt might be hard to believe.

Thanks for getting the books!

You might want to try the Fisher People next. Set on the Gulf coast, it has a lot of action on the water + a lot of Texas History thrown in.
