Potato Salad Anyone?

When we were at Pompeii on Thanksgiving, we traveled through the ruins of the brothel. There, on the walls, was a visual "menu" of the various things you could request from the, ummm... employees of the establishment. They were quite explicit.

This prompted K, who was blushing as we left the building, to declare, "Wow, we haven't invented anything..."

It's true, anything innovative, crazy, new or sexy probably isn't that new. Our culture has been around a long time, and we've had a lot of times to come up with stuff over and over.

Case in point. These are the Ross sisters. This was shot in 1944. Lady Ga Ga? Beyonce? All you performers? Take note, 'cause your asses all just got served by your grandparents.

This is "Potato Salad."

So many words.

I'm reinspired to stick with Yoga, for one...so Tom and I can try that last move, unless it really requires three people, then nevermind.

If she can do that for an apple!

Loved the pirate swing ...just cuz.

Never did shit like this in MY barn.

Were they really talking about "potato salad"?

How weird is it that we both mentioned Pompeii in posts today?

It's a strange feeling when you find something visually creepy and sexy at the same time.

Yeah.
