Introduction

The "Hotel Melanoma" moniker is a metaphor for living with my particular brand of cancer. Except for those lucky few of us deemed "cured", all we cancer survivors are guests of one of the many, many branded hotels in the "Hotel Carcinoma" chain. We can check out any time we like, but we can never leave. Meanwhile, let's be livin' it up; and please support cancer education, prevention, and treatment research.

On The Beach



Today we enjoy the summer solstice and longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. And I just had to get out on the golf course and spend some quality time ‘on the beach’. The club has a new teaching pro who was offering free 15-minute golf lessons today. Cheap and talentless player that I am, I was going to sign up until I saw that he’d set up a video camera to record his pupils’ swings. A Kardashian wannabe I’m not, and one of the many things I never, ever want to see myself doing on video is swinging a golf club. So I high-tailed it out of there before forever losing my delusion that I have the silky-smooth swing of Freddy Couples.

By the way, I missed ‘my’ sand trap today because I pulled my tee shot left into the pine trees. Wishing you all a happy and sun-safe first day of summer, I’ll sign off with a little song to sunscreen and my SPF-50 golf duds, to the tune of “Take Me in Your Arms” from The Doobie Brothers…



I know you're screenin', screenin' me so fine
I'm needin’ you darlings for a very fast nine
Show a little SPF karma before I glow
Please let me feel your embrace once more

Save me from sun harms
(Block me, Block me a little while)
Oh little darlings
(Block me, block me a little while)

We all must feel par ache sometimes
Right now, right now I'm feelin' mine

I've tried my best to be long, but I'm not able
I fly it helpless wild, left and unstable
Before I leave green, par I’m leavin' far behind
Please let me feel happy one more time

Save me from sun harms
(Block me, block me a little while)
Oh little darlings
(Block me, block me a little while)

I'm losin' hue and my tanning fest
My hide it was so dark I must confess

I'll never, never see a flying ace no more
I'll ever, ever fear the shock when count my score
Before I leave green, leave green with nine
Please let me feel happy one more time

Save me from sun harms
(Block me, block me a little while)
Oh please baby
(Block me, block me a little while)
Oh yeah, yeah

I'm making hue leavin'
(Save me, save me)
Oh ray screen please yeah
(Save me, save me)
Come on ray screen
(Save me, save me)
Can't you see me on my knees now
(Save me, save me)
Come on ray screen can't you save please
(Save me, save me)
Come on ray screen, oh baby please, please, please

Save me from sun harms
(Block me, block me a little while)
(Save me, save me, save me)
Oh little darlings
(Block me, block me a little while)
(Save me, save me, save me)
Come on ray screen
(Block me, block me a little while)
(Save me, save me, save me)
Oh little darlings
(Block me, block me a little while)
(Save me)
Yeah
(Block me, block me a little while)
(Save me, save me)
Oh little darlings
