I heard that a Jaguar was involved & I honestly thought I had misheard that. I had to go look it up.

A Jaguar. More to the point a Jaguar driver — a Jaguar owner. I am HOPING that it was stolen.

Jaguar owners are supposed to be classy. We have taste. We have acumen. We are NOT stupid. That is why we buy & drive a Jaguar.

I have tried to find out who this idiot was. I have not succeeded. Appears very little is known about him. But, I am keeping tabs on him. We can’t have any riff raff driving Jaguars. Riff raff is expected to drive German cars.

From what I can see they have been doing it, in Seattle, for 25 years!

The Summer Solstice in the U.S. would no longer appear to be complete without them.

In 2017, the The Painted (Naked) Cyclists of the Solstice Parade in the Fremont district
of Seattle, Washington State was on Saturday, June 17.

fathersdaysolsticeTeischan, my 9-year old, pointed this out last night — Father’s day will be (as she calls it) on the first day of Summer. She is into things like that, and I am glad.

Got me thinking as to how often this happens — like Easter and Passover on the same weekend.

Father’s Day, in the United States, is on the third Sunday of June. It was first celebrated in the U.S. in 1910. It was officially recognized as a holiday, by President Nixon, in 1972. Mother’s Day started c. 1870.

The Summer solstice occurs between June 20 and June 22.

June 22nd is one day out to ever be the third Sunday. But, Father’s Day can and will fall on a June 20 or 21st.

I went and checked it from 1990 to 2020.

2020 is interesting. Father’s Day is on June 21 BUT the Solstice is on June 20.

So this is the last conjunction for a while.

Enjoy. Happy Father’s Day. Happy Summer Solstice — though it is MY LEAST favorite day of the year. As of the Summer Solstice days start getting SHORTER. To me that is NOT the start of Summer. That is the start of Winter. I revel in the Winter Solstice. To me that is the start of Summer.

Don’t forget the Fremont, Seattle, Washington State Summer Fair takes place on the Solstice.
