Our winter has been very mild this year, more like many winters of the past going back 6 or 7 years before global warming brought us several of the coldest winters in Oklahoma history. So I can’t say I’m longing for a beach destination to escape frigid weather. No, just looking for something for a Rule 5 – ya know what they are, pretty girls, beautiful women, a little fashion for the ladies, so as to escape all politics, all the time. I’m simply out of ideas, so swimsuits are a good bet to create a little interest.
A message for my girlfriends: as I look around for photos of well-known actresses and models in swimsuits, I find their natural photos (those caught on the beach with family and friends) are, in general, messy and unattractive – saggy, cellulite, poochie tummies, and all that. Most need a little touch up and a professional photographer, with the exception of Julianne Hough in the photo about half-way down the page (and maybe Brooklyn Decker). Believe me, remove the face and your body isn’t so different now, or maybe ‘back then’ from any untouched SI model.
See a list of my friends hosting Rule 5s this weekend below the photos (some double links because I missed last week with my Mom in the hospital).
