I'm not a Southern Beauty,
I'm not an Eastern rose;
I'm just a lil' Western Gal
With freckles on her nose.

Big Hilda Napping -- for Now

I think I love the Big Hildas best when there's some mischief afoot. Her sidekick is about to be in the doghouse, I do believe.

Hilda is the creation of artist Duane Bryers, also known for his propaganda paintings in WWII. His depictions of the Axis leaders did much to strengthen resolve among the American people. I think his paintings of Big Hilda could have done much to strengthen morale among the troops! Alas, he did not begin the Hildas until after the war. Hilda painted on the nose of a bomber would have been a real sight.

    Hello and thanks so much for another Hilda graphic. Like I said, I love her and started to collect all her pictures. I don't have this one either, so thanks very much.

    I hope you're staying cool and doing well today. Get some rest, if you can, and give those two dogs of yours a scratch behind the ears from me ;-)

    Miss you!

  • Doris Sturm

  • Davine

    Gotta love a man who loved a curvaceous woman! Every Hilda becomes a favorite, but a few of them are really special ~ and, this is one of those. I'm a major napper. LOL

    Keep those Hildas coming! Hope you're staying cool in the terrible heat you've been getting.
    We've been having rain for nearly three weeks!

    On my they should have painted Hilda' s distracting visage on the bombers, the Gerries would have dropped dead at the sight.
    She is a drop dead beauty. The US should use her on tanks and aircraft in their operations in certain parts of the globe, wars will not drag on. LOL
