This weeks prompt shows happy people wading in the water. Now that we’re getting some warm weather in the Midwest, thinking about sunny days spent swimming seems reasonable.

These friends sure have great smiles and modest suits.

  1. Dig those swim outfits. I sure wouldn’t want to try to actually swim in them. But notice one thing about them – they cover up far more skin than today’s bathing suits, true enough. But they didn’t have built-in bras and when that fabric got wet, well, it didn’t leave that much to the imagination! 🙂

    • I’m aging too so I may find a new theme with black text. Or I will see if I can change the text style.

      Thanks for that feedback, Barb.
