We have come a long way! Look at these bathing suits! I love pictures like this, the girls look so happy. I'd love to know their stories...

The Olympics start today.

Maybe they are happy because the wind is letting up! Woof & tail wags for the Olympics.

Floozies! Wearing skimpy little bathing suits like that -- have they no shame? What is this world coming to?

Fun photo! I love this era.

The Olympics began on such a sad note ... hopefully all goes well now! The opening ceremonies were wonderful! I'm looking forward to the figure skating events.
