Above we see what looks like summer at the Jersey Shore but  is actually winter on Sanibel Island in southwest Fla.

In case you didn’t notice in Ocean Grove the last few seasons we had the summers of gravity-defying short shorts for women. The fashion caught on like wildfire and also probably got caught elsewhere as well.

Who knew that such shorts were physically possible?  As a student of human anatomy and gravity, I found it difficult to explain, but no more difficult than jeans worn halfway down a guy’s backside which manage never to fall down.

Butt, it also was the summers for thong bathing suits, rarely seen in the Grove, but more common over in Asbury or a quick jog south to Belmar. However, last summer we saw a young woman in a thong walking her dog right past Days Ice Cream and then past the Camp Meeting Association world headquarters.  She wore no coverup.   Needless to say, some ice cream did drip down the shirts of the Days crowd.

Here we see it in  Fla La Land, giving new meaning to the gulf of Mexico.

However  the most evident  women’s fashion look, seen everywhere,  are the black spandex pants that rarely make it down to the ankle, but they are so revealing, that despite covering all critical parts, they leave nothing to the imagination as they show every curve.  Why do that, when a bit of mystery is always more tantalizing?

The funny thing is that men’s summer clothes don’t change much.  The “drop your pants and reveal your boxers” fashion seems to be fading.  For men, jackets and  ties have been gone for some time, except maybe for funerals, weddings, playing in a symphony, or working in a law firm or corporation.

For the summer of ’19, Blogfinger will bring back the “girls in their summer clothes.”

Bruce Springsteen films a video in OG,  by Andrew Meyer © 2007.  Special to Blogfinger.

Bruce Springsteen made this song famous and he made a music video shot, 2007,  partially in Ocean Grove.  Andrew Meyer, a BF reader, was there taking pictures.

Andrew says, “I have seen the music video but not recently and some parts of it are definitely from OG.    I believe that besides the scenes with him singing there are beach scenes with a juke box and pinball machine as well as the fishing pier that are from OG.    Most of the filming was done on the beach just north of the pier with some additional scenes just south of the pier.”

Below is a link to the video:.    As it says in the link “Shot on a cold winter’s day, we froze!” is very true, it was actually the Friday before Thanksgiving 2007 and a very cold day.

Is she with the others, and what does the little smile mean?  Ask Paul McCartney—he wrote the song and included the piccolo.

There beneath the blue suburban skies
