TITLE: LES HAWARDS HEUREUX DE L'ESCARPOLETTE. WONDERFUL CLASSIC -- WITH A PRETTY WOMAN BEING PUSHED ON THE SWING BY HER LOVER OR HUSBAND...UNKNOWN TO HIM, IN THE BUSHES, ANOTHER FELLOW IS WATCHING STRATEGICALLY AS SHE LIFTS UP HER LEG AND HER DRESS RISES AS SHE FLIPS A SHOE OUT INTO THE GARDEN. PRETTY...AND A TEENSY BIT NAUGHTY, TOO.
