Taking the subway is a hassle-free means to get to your destination. There would be even less stress involved if those of us who are bare practitioners (naturists/nudists) could enjoy the convenience of travelling clothes-free as is Daniel Shoneye in the photograph above. I know for a fact that if nudity were allowed, I’d subway all over the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. Alas, that’s probably never going to happen anytime soon but at least I can hope for clothes-freedom somewhere in my future!
Throughout the world, tomorrow, the 11th day of the 11th month (November 11), is observed as Armistice Day. On this day in 1918, the armistice or cease-fire was signed and implemented at 11:00 a.m. The armistice ended the carnage and destruction of the Great War (World War I). In the United States, tomorrow is known as Veteran’s Day. In the United Kingdom and throughout the Commonwealth, it is Remembrance Day.
In the USA, it is a time to acknowledge the veterans of all wars, both living and deceased.
It’s the last day of October and it’s also Halloween here in the USA! Happy Halloween and feel free to celebrate by body-painting a pumpkin face on your buttocks – if you dare! For those who may not be quite so adventurous, have fun and be safe, anyway! Just beware of all the ghosts and goblins who come out to play!
This weekend is the weekend before the Halloween celebrations here in the USA. In the accompanying photograph, I’m posing in my 2012 Halloween costume – a mask with a salmon-colored “clip-on” bow-tie – and, obviously wearing nothing but my natural skin. A very comfortable and enjoyable costume for me. The only stress that I recall encountering that year was in trying to put on the tie that clipped-on in the back. Thankfully I had my then-boyfriend, Aaron (who’s now my legal spouse) to help me get the clip fastened.
Today, September 4, is the annual Labor Day holiday here in the USA. This is the date set aside by the U.S. Congress to honor the endeavors and labors of this country’s workforce and their contributions to the national economy and nation’s well-being. This holiday has no fixed date as it is customarily observed on the first Monday of September every year. It is also one of the few holidays in the USA that isn’t related to either a patriotic or a religious theme. Sort of an everyman’s (or everyperson’s) holiday.
Tomorrow, July 4, is celebrated in the USA as Independence Day. It was on this date that the Continental Congress declared itself absolved of allegiance to the British Crown and that the thirteen British colonies along the east coast of the north Atlantic Ocean were now self-determining and no longer dependent on the Mother Country (Great Britain).
July 1, every year, is the national holiday of the Dominion of Canada. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the creation of the Dominion of Canada with the parliamentary ratification of the British North America Act which united the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec under Queen Victoria. Over the years since July 1, 1867, other provinces and territories joined the original four that now comprise the Dominion of Canada.
