crunchland, you heathen monkey! You've done gone told everyone where my secret masthead stash [self link] is. As a small aside, if you click the thumbnails, I've taken out the seams. Now if only I got back to updating the site. :( Anyway, the images for Wrote are some of my favorites from the LoC link.

Well, shame on you for keeping it a secret for so long! You did a good job cleaning them up, and they look great on your site, too. I'm surprised you didn't choose this one, considering how erotic it is and all...

My favorite catagory is "bathing beauties!" Do those ankles go all the way up?

If you're into sports, there's some amazing shots of old ballparks - awesome.

crunchland, thanks for the cool link. And pedantic did use that "erotic" one (what, no trains going into tunnels?) exactly a year ago.

pedantic, that's a great idea. Too bad your secret is out. MUHUHUHUWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

mikrophon: don't miss the pirates!

looks like most of the links we made in this thread were temporary ones, and don't work anymore.
