Bring Back Naked Gardening!

Posted on  by randomwordbyruth

  

Get ready for the Annual World Naked Gardening Day (WNGD)! People across the globe are encouraged, on the first Saturday of May, to tend their portion of the world’s garden unclothed as nature intended.

Gardening has a timeless quality, and anyone can do it: young and old, singles or groups, the fit and infirm, urban and rural. An elderly lady in a Manhattan apartment can plant new annuals in her window box. Families can rake leaves in their back yard. Freehikers can pull invasive weeds along their favorite stretch of trail. More daring groups can make rapid clothes-free sorties into public parks to do community-friendly stealth cleanups.

Why garden naked? First of all, it’s fun! Second only to swimming, gardening is at the top of the list of family-friendly activities people are most ready to consider doing nude. Moreover, our culture needs to move toward a healthy sense of both body acceptance and our relation to the natural environment. Gardening naked is not only a simple joy, it reminds us–even if only for those few sunkissed minutes–that we can be honest with who we are as humans and as part of this planet.

I have already found some ‘fault’ with this holiday. As many of us are situated in such places that do not provide ‘shelter from the storm’…per-say!

For instance,

-severe allergy to poison ivy

-thorny bushes that dot the New Hampshire landscape

-Irish skin exposed to elements such as,

-humidity the same level as the temperature

-encounters with Sasquatch

-deer ticks

-New Hampshire’s personal…on steroids, mosquito

Then there are also…physical obstacles…

-bladder control problems

-where to hang the mp3 player

-where to place the All Eyes are on You…phone

-dog shit!

and…

Most importantly,

‘Why am I looking at that?’

Meaning While in Scouting News!

The Boy Scouts of America declare bankruptcy due to continued allegations of sexual abuse!

While the Girl Scouts of America become the entrepreneurs they were always meant to be!

Scruff and Stuff

Personally, I think the best way to give your cat a pill is…have your wife, husband, partner…do it!

In all seriousness, I have worked in many animal shelters (and, of course have way too many cats at home) the best way to give your cat a pill is to scruff and stuff. A cat is generally, okay with being scruff-ed. His/Her mother would haul them around by the scruff of the neck…and, the kitten finds it nurturing. Once you have scruff-ed, you stuff the pill to the back of the throat. Less dry effect of a pill stuck in the throat and your pet will appreciate (in the end) not gagging on an antibiotic.

Why Warren…New Hampshire?

If you are ever in New Hampshire. Either on tour of the 17 mile seacoast. Looking at the Old Man in the Mountain…who is no longer there. Or, imbibing at the world’s largest arcade…Funspot. An absolutely must? Warren, New Hampshire and the not so famous, Redstone Rocket!

Warren, New Hampshire: Only Town with a Real Redstone Rocket

The same kind of rocket that hurled New Hampshire native Alan Shepard into space. Brought here in 1971.

Redstone Missile

The sleepy little burg of Warren has its own Redstone Missile. A remnant of the Cold War, it is nestled in a little park with a “Missile Information” kiosk that gives you the scoop. There are a couple of picnic tables, and the Warren Historical Museum is just steps away. Worth a look if you are out in the boondocks of NH for some reason. We drive over to Warren to get haircuts at Mary’s Shear Connection. So get a haircut from the lovely Mary and get your missile on! Peace. https://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/863

So, Mary gives good…haircuts, all the mailboxes are a patented, look alike, forest green, a big missile protrudes from the sky. If a town could actually scream, ‘give me more lithium’ it would be Warren, New Hampshire!
