24,106 sunrises



It's my 66th birthday today.

As I look back at 55, 44, 33 and so on ... it was an interesting life.

I wonder where I'll be at 77.

8. Go Topless Day - Aug 24, 2014

 

GoTopless Day always falls at the Sunday closest to Women's Equality Day, Aug 26. It is indeed on Aug 26, 1920 that women earned their right to vote on the basis of Gender Equality. In 1971, the US Congress has made Aug 26 into a nationally recognized date and named it "Women's Equality Day". The president of the United States is summoned to commemorate this date each year.

It is only logical that GoTopless Day protests (or celebrations depending on the legal status of your city) would fall around Women's Equality Day since the right to go topless for women is based on gender equality as their right to vote once was.

On Sunday Aug. 24, people in cities around the world are invited to stand up for women's right to go topless in public. Please contact us if you would like to organize an event in your area so we can list your venue on our "Boob Map" 2014 . (Please refer to our legal map in our section topless laws to know the topless status in your state and call your DA to know what your city's is)


(Nope, not gonna post any pictures.)

31. Because...

 

For most situations gravity is well approximated by Newton's law of universal gravitation, which postulates that the gravitational force of two bodies of mass is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

They are all over fifty-five. The shock of seeing me topless might cause a heart attack.

50. At 77 you'll be 7 years younger than me. If I make it to 84.

I put the odds at 50-50 on making 84.

Congratulations on making it this far.
Keep on keepin' on.

AND MOVE, keep moving.
Everyday, as much as you can.

55. Ya know ... at this point 84 sounds pretty good.

That's the trick to staying alive ... moving as much as possible.

I blew it all to hell last winter by sitting on my tush. My hips were yelling at me for most of the summer. I even bought a walker to get going again.
We are expecting a delivery of a 10x10 shed in about two weeks. Then I can move over half the junk inside to the outside. I'll be able to use my treadmill for something more than holding my coat.
