Friends, it's no secret that Cathy and I have been somewhat on the "outs" of late, especially now that I've insisted she start wearing her glasses instead of bumping into streetlamps and saying "Pardon me."
Luckily, my identical cousin embraced my 1942 creation right away and even agreed to wear it with some slightly more shape-enhancing foundation garments. "Do it for the boys" I told her and, inspired by the period, she agreed.
So here's the results of our little photoshoot. I should mention that, perhaps more than usual, it deals with adult situations, so parental guidance is suggested. A few of you might want your kids around to explain what your parents can't.
As always, to see these photos full-size, please click on any image and then, in Picasa, choose "View All" in the upper left hand corner, and "Slideshow."
So, what do you think? Are the forties Cathy's decade? (The 1940's I mean, of course!)
Please leave any other messages you may have for Cathy below.
