My Playboy Collection

Today I pulled out the older part of my Playboy magazine collection. Kirsten needed two specific articles from the 1970s for an essay she’s writing for her sociology course. Skye and I laid them out on the table in chronological order, took a few pictures, then boxed them back up.
