Greek Independence Day!

March 25, annually, is Greek Independence Day. This celebration marks the date, in 1821, when the people who live in what is now Greece, rose up in revolt against Ottoman Turkey who occupied their homeland for hundreds of years.

Obviously, the two gentlemen in the above photograph are bare or clothes-free. The difference is how they are posing while without covering. With the attached poem (below) and message in mind, one of our guys  is naked. Our assumption being that it is not his first choice. On the other hand, our other man is nude. That’s because his being without clothing causes him no concern or discomfort whatsoever. The question is: “Which one is which?”

March Bare Cartoons #2

This week is Spring Break week at my university and I’m using the time away from my classes to visit my mother in Greece. She is having some depression and a difficult time coping with my father’s death this past November. I’m hoping the trip will offer support to both her and my brothers who live nearby.
