    LOLOL Margy. Love this one cause it is so true!! No one wants anyone to see them in a swimsuit at a 40 year class reunion….unless they are up to their neck in a hot tub cause with all the swirly water you can’t see anything.


    1. I know what you mean! I did find a bathing suit a few years ago with a lovely bias cut light weight skirt effect – it hides a million sins! It is so funny when I get in the water, though, because it floats out around me so I look a bit like I have a floatie around my waist…

  2. “Keep waving even after you’ve realized the person you’re waving to isn’t who you thought it was.” Excellent advice, and I think I’ve finally mastered it. A good thing, too, since it happens to me a lot!! Excellent collection, Margy– you’ve done it again!!
