July 39ers … Have you Hugged Your Teddy Bear Today?
Apparently, July is “Cell Phone Courtesy Month.” Like … really? It’s too bad we need reminding.
I’d rather celebrate “World Watercolor Month,” wouldn’t you? Whatever you celebrate July for, it’s your UN-birthday month, 39ers. Enjoy!
Besides Your UN-Birthday ~ Happy JULY Celebrations
10th ~ *Piña Colada Day / A history of one version of its creation c. 1954.
10th ~ *Teddy Bears' Picnic Day / The toy created for a US president. (President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, (1858-1919.)
[Note/Brownielocks calendars webmaster: I do not know why July 10th was chosen, because Jimmy Kennedy, who wrote the words to the song, was born on July 20.]
20th ~ National Lollipop Day / ♪ It’s a sweet trip to a candy shop … ♪ (Shirley Temple, “On the Good Ship Lollipop,” 1934) The first food on-a-stick?

For 39ers who Follow the Stars …
Cancer and Leo July 39ers … have you ever felt the urge to wear a turquoise or onyx gemstone, feeling disconnected from the current ruby red gem? It’s ok … you’re simply channeling a 15th century and prior, desire.
Wiki states the royal red ruby didn’t make Zodiac fashion headlines until the 20th century, so wear whichever makes you feel best!
Cancer 39ers do enjoy the majestic qualities of the ruby but make anything they wear look good. While they shine on the outside however, the early July 39ers (June 21-July 22) may also find turquoise resonates with their soft-hued inner being. That’s where their true, loyal and caring personality resides.
And we all know of the lion’s reputation as King of the Jungle … asphalt or trees … it’s all a jungle! Leo 39ers are no majestic slouches. The black onyx is as powerful as it is mysterious. While wearing it the charming and dramatic Leo can love as big as the summer sun and generate a magical heat with the forceful gemstone’s gleaming black surface. Just know the leonine ego also attends the party.
Aging with ATT-i-tude Platitude
Our philosophies age gracefully with us if we challenge our history of common sense, never stop asking questions, and continuously revise our youthful follies of thinking. ~ L. Rochelle
