You really can be too tan

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

When we were in Vegas this past August, we spent part of each day in a cabana by the Bellagio pool. Every morning from opening to closing this woman was out there with her coating of oil, and her much younger, quite handsome friend. One of the people in our group, decided to strike up a conversation with, and take a picture of her. The woman is in her early 70s, and resides in Reno but spends a couple of weeks a month in Vegas.

I think she used to be the mistress of some big mobster during the original Sinatra Vegas days. What do you think?

Hey,

Michele sent me.

May I never see her tan lines. I can only imagine how she trims the hedges.

my god it looks somewhat unhealthy to me. Good thing she doesnt have any skin cancer or whatever.

I thought gross until you said 70's...shit...if she's lived that long and her skin is still hangin on her bones she's doing pretty good. (I hate to see people "that" tan, even though I did the baby oil thing too when I was 20 or so.)

eeewwww. Hasn't she heard of skin cancer?

Still, looking like that at 70 is not so bad really:-)

Here from kichele's today, but I come lurking reasonably regularly:-)

Ack, granted she is in better shape than I am (but who isn't), but that looks like a leather suit. Thanks for visiting my site. I will come back and see you later.

this is seriously gross. you know her skin has got to be like leather! she reminds me of someone we know..........

All I can think is 100% genuine American Leather... But I suppose at her age you can bake till you're toasty if you want. I never would have guessed she was near my dad's age from that picture...

Here via Michele's this time :)

I duuno...I think for being in her 70s, she looks pretty good. It's amazing though, because the sun is supposed to age you. She should be looking OLDER than 70 something.

I heart Vegas.

Michele sent me today. Holy Beef Jerky! That is INSANE! Her hair color bothers me more than her tan, though. I'm weird about hair color...ha. I am an Ex-sunworshiper. And i've had several moles removed...kinda scarey. In high school, we laid on tinfoil, and I actually used crisco once when I was out of baby oil. Ahhhhh, wasn't I the smart one?!

OMG for lack of anything better to say. It's gross and amazing at the same time. I mean I really wish that I look that good at 70, just not that tan, because that's just sick.

She does look like beef jerky! ICK!
