++++ Do a SEARCH on ‘topless’ for my other posts that mention it >>>>


I go topless most of the Summer and well into the fall. Having grown up in Europe and still being very European (or at least British) at heart I have no problems, whatsoever, with men or women going topless. As far as I am concerned, that Laconia c. 2000, ‘banned’ female flashing during ‘Bike Week’ is very un-American and discriminatory. Given all the man boobs freely on show, I would much prefer to see more delicate and delectable offerings. Going to topless beaches in Europe is just part and parcel of living there. Never had any problems when whoever I was with went topless. As I had been told ‘it is much less conspicuous to be topless than to be covered‘! Plus, as I had discovered, to my cost, they all look the same after the first ten thousand. Cracked me up the first time I went to Waikiki Beach in Hawaii in 1985. All these women going to so, so much trouble to expose as much as they could without going topless. It was hilarious. Just go topless.

Since I stoutly defended my future Queen, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, during the childish topless flap, I get quite a number of hits when folks are searching the Web for ‘topless’ references.

Today I noticed a new variation that immediately piqued my interest. Folks were falling over themselves doing searches for ‘topless in NH‘. I, being the season cynic I am, knew at once that this was NOT what it appeared to be. Though I would embrace it gladly, I know NH way too well (and I am a Granite State Ambassador (GSA)) to appreciate that it is more than unlikely that we would, in my lifetime, see ladies cavorting topless on Gilford beach. But, I was curios. As soon as I saw that the event was being held in Rumney, the ‘redneck‘ capital of NH, where dentist go to daydream of the untold riches they could have if they could just treat 5% of the residents, the game was up.

Yes, it is topless, and I hope that as with Bike Week there will at least be some surreptitious flashing, if not topless in topless. Here, this gives the game away. Enjoy.
