The Nugget
Golden Gate Region Porsche Club of America
June 2016, Volume 56, Issue 5


Memorial Day is the official first day of the summer when we all want to be lounging on the beach or by the pool. Who wants to stay hidden in dark places like a rat? Ugh!

Of course, it is important to guard against excessive sun exposure to keep one's complexion looking unbelievably smooth and pristine. Save the Botox touch-up till you really need it!

I prefer not to be forever applying sunblock, so to stop those harmful rays I like a comfortable cabana setup with Balinese furniture and a suitable Persian rug. Totally worth it and really not that much trouble for your human to set up.

Here's hoping you have a similarly safe and relaxing summer!
