Here’s a story from my hippie days that should brighten everyone’s day.
Somewhere deep in a storage room in Washington D.C. there may be pictures of my boobs.
It was 1971 and the war in Vietnam was still going on. College campuses across this great land had protest rallies to shout and demand that we get our troops out of there.
Ah, the innocence of youth.
So I joined a large contingent of teenagers in a university courtyard to listen to folk singers and speakers filling our young, impressionable minds with anti-war sentiments. Then the rumor spread.
Someone said that there were men in suits on top of the nearby building taking photographs. Word swept through the crowd that they were FBI agents and you would end up with a “file”
“Quick! Cover your faces!” shouted one of the speakers. Some were carrying protest signs, so they shielded themselves with their placards. A few girls had purses and clutched their clutches at head-level.
The rest of us were doomed, until…
“Pull your shirt over your face!” was the advice passed through the crowd.
So I did. Flipped the hem of my T-shirt up over the top of my head, obscuring my features.
I was not wearing a brassiere.
And thus, the once-perky twins may have been photographed and cataloged by the government of the United States.

Good grief, I was born in the last century! Today I turned 61 years old. A lot of women won’t admit their age, but I am astonished to have lived this long, so I see it as a badge of honor.
If I’m lucky I will make it to 100, like these two old gals:
100 Year-Old Twins Joke
There were these twin sisters just turning one hundred years old. The editor of the local paper told a photographer to get over there and take some pictures of these 100-year-old twins.
One of the twins was hard of hearing and the other could hear quite well.
The photographer asked them to sit on the sofa and the deaf one said to her twin, “WHAT DID HE SAY?”
He said, “WE GOTTA SIT OVER THERE ON THE SOFA!” said the other.
“Now get a little closer together,” said the cameraman.
Again, “WHAT DID HE SAY?”
“HE SAYS SQUEEZE TOGETHER A LITTLE.”
So they wiggled up close to each other.
“Just hold on for a bit longer, I’ve got to focus a little,” said the photographer.
Yet again – “WHAT DID HE SAY?”
“HE SAYS HE’S GONNA FOCUS!”
With a big grin the deaf twin shouted out, “OH MY GOD! BOTH OF US?”
