Those VD posters were so prevalent in the fifties. Kept many a girl on the straight and narrow:)

That is a powerful poster - maybe we should be using it up these days - it is very eye catching.

LOL @ the ad!

I'm here again but Michele sent me this time. For the last two days we have had dire warnings about gales, floods and general pestilence so fingers crossed the french windows in our bedroom hold fast and the roof stays on. And the giant tree doesn't fall on us. Time for bed. Night night - hope the bugs don't bite.
