Yesterday was the final full day of Summer, 2019, for those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere. Officially, summer ends at 3:50 a.m., EDT. Today is absolutely not the first full day of Autumn. We have to wait until tomorrow before that happens. Of course, we all know that just because the seasons are changing doesn’t necessarily mean that the temperatures automatically follow suit. Summer-like weather is here for awhile longer.
My original title for this post was intended as “Last full weekend of…?” This was intended to reflect that for the Southern Hemisphere, this upcoming weekend would be their last full weekend of Winter; for the Northern Hemisphere, this weekend would be their final complete weekend of Summer. After composing this past Monday’s post, I became somewhat inspired by entitling today’s posting Backyard Naked Motorcycle Ride.
The World Naked Bike Ride is held annually, throughout the year, on every single continent on earth except Antarctica (note: penguins and seals don’t pedal bicycles). The event isn’t restricted by precipitation and most rides continue even through the rain. Downpours may affect the number of riders, but for the most part, the rides are still held. This event takes place all year long as extreme temperatures in the Southern Hemisphere are usually moderate in the Northern, and vice-versa.
Author’s Note: Before you begin reading today’s posting here, please allow me to share with you some background information on this entry. The predictions of the arrival of Hurricane Dorian along the eastern Atlantic coast of the USA were somewhat confusing and, as usual, very unpredictable. There is no guarantee of any path of a severe storm or a hurricane, despite the claims of the current USA president (he announced that the storm would wreak havoc on the state of Alabama).
This academic year began this past Tuesday, the day after the Labor Day holiday. The overwhelming majority of my students are those that have previously taken a class that I have instructed within my department’s curriculum here at the university. The sole exception to this is a new class that my department head assigned to me based on my evaluations from this university’s School of Inter-Disciplinary Studies class that I taught. This new class is a revision of an introduction to our Deaf Studies curriculum that offers an exploration of both Deaf culture and Deaf studies.
It is the final day of the month of August, 2019, and time for another feature of male buttocks proudly displayed by men from not only internet sources but also from some very proud bare readers here of ReNude Pride. During the Northern Hemisphere’s summer this year, I encouraged readers from both hemispheres to submit photographs of their buttocks to be published in celebration of everyone’s bottom’s up! This posting commemorates their bare bodies!
For all of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere, this month marks the final full month of the summer. For those who happen to reside in the Southern Hemisphere, the exact opposite is the case as their winter is almost at the end. All around our world, a change is everywhere “in the air.” One geographic area prepares to bid farewell to summer as the other prepares to welcome the arrival of spring!
