Today’s Top 5

Cute as a button

She has a wonderful smile. I hope she had a happy life.

What a sweetheart

I hope the years have been kind to her and her young beau. A lovely photo.

They were getting ready

... to discover rock 'n' roll.

Charmed and charming

Posed but utterly lovely. Her dress is gorgeous. And there is no substitute for innocence. Would God we could go back to when virtue was considered ... well. A virtue.
