In anticipation of summer, my June e-mail newsletter offered a challenge: share the name of your favorite suntan product and, if you like, a memory that evokes.
I started the ball rolling by offering SEA & SKI. The scent of that lotion transports me immediately back to my teen years at Lake Tahoe, California.
Your responses were great: Hawaiian Tropic, Sea & Ski, even baby oil (I remember those times before we knew the letters SPF). But by far, the most mentioned brand of suntan lotion was Coppertone. And, in fact, all three names drawn for my book giveaway mentioned Coppertone.
The winners of a signed copy of Disaster Status go to:
REBECCA B. (memories of Kerr Lake in Henderson, NC--boating and cookouts!)
LAURA G. (The scent of Coppertone Water Babies reminds her of being a 5-yr. old splashing in the water at Lake Erie).
Thank you all for sharing summer sun memories. And congratulations to our winners!
