Happy UN-Birthday 39ers AUGUST 2020

Cheers to Creative Summer Escapes 
This year, August’s sweltering sunburst is compounded by extreme boredom and frustration, as we weigh ways to sneak out and escape. Daydreams of the ocean or other scenic, playful experience, vs. playing it safe at home … is it over yet?!

Whether you apply that question to August or covid, chances are, you need an ATT-i-tude adjustment. You’ve come to the right place!

We celebrate 39ers every month of the year, come H-E-double-hockey-sticks or high water! Speaking of high seas, join us as we sip a libation to refresh our minds with fun, mindful escapes …

Celebrating AUGUST 39ers ~ And More!  

            Escape in their Facebook page and you won’t be able to suppress a sly grin or an out-and-out guffaw over pics and posts and “piratey” videos to watch. Get in the mood—binge rumbustious movie archives yet again, while dressed in yur best swashbuckling, rapscallion duds! Happy Arrr-gust Mateys!

>Boomers Making A Difference Month – No link is associated with this special monthly commemoration, so make of it what you will—after all, a good many of us 39ers are Boomers, or our parents are—so celebrate them for their quirky outlooks on life, vivacious wisdom, and their contributions to your life. Make a difference in their lives and yours, with a smile and helping hand, in home, community, state or country! ♪ I love Rock & Roll! Put another dime in the jukebox, baby! ♪

>National Crayon Collection Month
   is all about gathering your old crayons and donating them to kids in need … this could tie right in with Boomers Making a Difference Month!
Matriarch or patriarch of your family, or a new 39er with kids, nieces, or nephews, you can help our youth continue to create personal and public artistic masterpieces, during this odd and stressful time. Art expression in any form is so important for equal balance of spirit and soul, at any age.
Ask your friends, family, or meet someone new, and urge them to donate old crayons for a great cause. To really color a day bright, buy a new box and donate!

>What Will Be Your Legacy Month – seriously, have you thought about it? Again, no link or group claims this special monthly designation, but it’s a very important topic for 39ers.
NOW is the time to ask yourself that question. How does/did/will your life impact future generations?
Writing Your Legacy
Even if you feel your life is ordinary or mundane, think about the good you do for others, the interesting or odd jobs or experiences you’ve lived through, and the insightful wisdom you’ve gained from them—write it down—and start your legacy now.
Our sister site, has ideas and suggestions … stop on by and give it some thought. “Since we don't have a crystal ball that tells us when we'll ... well, you know ... leaving your legacy at any age is important. Do it now.

For a couple one-day fun thoughts, August 21st is Poet's Day. Muse creatively and pen a poem! It need not be a classic; a few lines of reflective thoughts to a loved one or friend (or yourself). Or … party all month with August 39ers and culminate with International Cabernet Sauvignon Day on the 30th … Cheers!

For 39ers who Follow the Stars
Leos (07/23-08/22) will keep the 39ers’ UN-birthday party guests happy and the Virgo folks (08/23-09/22) set the whole thing up. Virtual this year? Not a problem. Socially planned out for fun in distancing? You got it! Between the two, you can have it all!
            Leonine Leos come by their mythological symbol honestly, with the ancient Latin for “Leo” translating to lion. These 39ers use their planetary ruler, the Sun, to brighten their lives and those around them, with its essential energy. This month, they shine with drama and excitement, and will light up your day.
            Not to be outdone, Virgos’ expansive capacity for nurturing and caring for all humanity over millennia, range from its ancient beginnings as a goddess of fertility, to its more recent association with the Virgin Mary. During August, to close friends and family, Virgos may seem a little quieter than usual. But in the Virgo mind, they’re just a little more centered on tasks at hand.
Take a break from the summer heat and peer into August’s soothing green Peridot birthstone. Its complex facets captivate and calm your spirit, while stories abound of magical powers and healing properties.

Aging with ATT-i-tude Platitude  
Did you wake up today depressed over aging, the past, a seemingly insurmountable obstacle to future happiness? Fine. Pamper yourself for 24 hours. Get up tomorrow with a 39er ATT-i-tude: No excuses. Just Rock On!  ~ L. Rochelle

Don’t wait, start now! Cheers to your Happy UN-Birthday AUGUST 39ers
This one’s for you, kids – Linda, Jim, Stephanie, and Tanya!
