With that body, I might come out of the closet too! ;)

That is a lovely photo. And I'm sure she's happy that such a moment was commemorated.

Makes me want to go take some nude photos of myself, while everything is still in the right place. :P

Hugs,
mouse

One of the most famous backsides in the world and she never made a penny out of the poster, still she seems quite sanguine about it.

Sara - She's still looking good.

Pink - I'd be very happy having it exhibited if I'd had a bottom like that:)

Mouse - Doesn't mention her husband but I wonder what he thought.

Red - Your welcome, glad I spotted it

PK - I know I didn't:)

Prefectdt - She probably wouldn't have got much for it then. I thinks she comes across as a nice lady.

Appreciate you all stopping by, thanks.

Love,
Ronnie
