Me a few days ago.
Blue Jay -
You may be familiar with the American-Swedish Institute (ASI) in Minneapolis, MN, USA but other Dimensions folks may not be. I'm including a link to a history portion of the ASI website: https://www.asimn.org/historic-turnblad-mansion Swan Turnblad was the successful publisher of a Swedish language newspaper in the days when the immigrant Swedes were largely grouped in an area referred to, rather disdainfully, as 'Snoose Boulevard' - for reasons I won't get into here.
Swan Turnblad built his mansion in the ritziest part of town - his way, in part, of thumbing his nose at his neighbors who looked down their noses at the Swedes. He later donated that residence which became ASI. My wife and I have been members there for many decades, though we don't get there all that often.
If you ever drop by this way, look it up. It's fun to wander through and has a rather nice restaurant in the building.
No, I was not familiar with the ASI, until now I will look it up! My grandfather had an uncle that moved to Minnesota, so I really want to visit there some time!
Trying on my first ever pair of skinny jeans
May they not be your last; they're lovely.
Haha thanks! I love them so much that I'm going back to the store get a couple more pairs soon!
Looking great! How many pounds lost?
I bought a plaid skirt for a gig where I had to sing Smells like teen spirit to get in the mood .
Rocking the skirt, and I love the new hair!
Finally warm enough to make the long bike ride in to work in the morning (I had full gloves on too, but took them off to take the picture)
Me on Sunday.
Looks like you were out enjoying the spring weather! Looking gorgeous!
Hanging with my munchkin
Taking a break while out biking at lunch.
Me at Oktoberfest with The Bee Gees Golden Tribute.. Awesome evening.
Sounds like a fun time!
I used to be a paysite model. Now I can’t make a straight face to save my life.
Wow absolutely Gorgeous
