A little background here. Steve was born in Tucson and has lived in Phoenix for more than 40 years. He was a television photographer when I met him and has worked as a self-employed videographer for many years now. In both occupations he spent a lot of time outdoors working in Arizona's hot sun. So, he's got a pretty darned good tan.
I, on the other hand, only worked outdoors for a few years and then spent the bulk of my career at an inside desk job, from which I've been retired for many, many years. I don't play golf or anything else that takes me outside a lot and that coupled with my Norwegian/English heritage has left me with a pasty white complexion which Steve always teases me about when we get together. Especially if we're both wearing shorts and my glaring white legs are next to his mahogany ones.
But I can take it and I still accept his baseball invitations.
So today, I'm off to see the lizard.
