    Beautiful one and all! Delicious Swedish meatballs.

    I know everyone in the 70’s was walking around with long pointy collars but what was going on in Sweden that made all their collars super extra exceptionally lonnnnnngggggg?

    I think THE business to be in in Sweden in the 70’s was barbershops.

    I once read that Sweden has the highest suicide rate of any country and I’m beginning to understand why. And my guess is that most of those suicides are by women.

      hahahaha! true! so true!!! On any causal night out with friends, the swedes also seem to have a habit of drinking themselves nearly to death (at least that’s been my experience), which does make sense when you see these pics…but then, can enough booze be consumed or even PRODUCED to facilitate mating with these sexy beasts? That’s not a rhetorical question, by the way….

    I can easily envision each group driving to their gigs in a 1970’s Volvo wagon.

    This has been a little surreal looking at these, because there were a lot of Swede settlements near where I grew up in the midwest, and many of these guys look like people I grew up with.
