Old photograph

I have posted this picture before but this is a clearer version. It is a photo of my wife before I had met her (at the top of course) and her late mother. They are dressed in Victorian era (or maybe Edwardian) costumes for fun. I suspect my wife is looking a bit severe to go with the general effect.

    I am beginning to understand why you have been saying for years that short haired brunettes are good looking.

      Yes. I am not sure whether my obsession with short-haired brunettes is a cause or an effect of marrying my wife.

        You may be caught in the “The chicken or the egg” conundrum on that one. I would not question it.
        I have linked her before. What a set of pipes! It looks like she went to Russian and they like her.

        Mais oui!

        But if I were looking for short-haired Frenchwomen I would probably go more with Audrey Tautou:

        They do seem to specialize in good looking short hared brunettes. It is kind of frustrating. I don’t speak French.

        Yes. It is a French look: “gamine” they sometimes call it.

        But similarly cute girls appear in lots of places. Italian. Irish. Scots. And elsewhere. (A few years ago I saw a cute girl of this type working in a coffee shop in Sydney. Italian-Australian I suppose.)

        But I suppose there are types that different nationalities specialise in. Peaches-and-cream English girls. Gamine French girls. Voluptuous Italians. Blonde bombshell Russian women. Rangy athletic American blondes. And so on.

        They do come in all shapes and sizes. That is good for business for tailors and seamstresses. It also gives us something different to look at, so we don’t get bored.

        I believe one should select one you like and stick with her.

        There is always something new and intriguing coming along, and you just have to be happy with the girl you chose.

        I used to work with a bombshell African-Australian girl with an amazing figure, like a cartoon character if you know what I mean. Then one day I was in a meeting with this first girl and I noticed another young woman there who clearly “out-bombshelled” even her, a blonde with an even more statuesque and bosomy build. Like a Norse goddess. Incredible.

        There is always something more out there.

        The trick is to be happy with the one you chose.

        I was talking about looking. As for keeping, that is something else again.

    Actually “the chicken or the egg” conundrum doesn’t exist: the egg came first, since reptiles were laying eggs uncounted millennia before the first chicken ever existed.
