has been called

Pants off seems fitting for a post

Anyone fortunate enough to get their
paws on both swinging sixties titles…SCORE!
Ooooh, yeah, baby.

Peace to you right where you are.
A few years back, this blogger
who is not Duffy
created a tulle shrug and had fun
snapping Twiggy-inspired pics
of a friend…
She was so focused!
