‘The Girl from Ipanema’ turns 50

Remember the words from the song: “Tall and tan and young and lovely…”  The story is that the composer was inspired by the sight of Heloisa “Helo” Pinheiro.  Perhaps she was too in love with the sea.  I remember the couple next door to my parent’s home.   They went water skiing every weekend for years with their children.  She was a tall good looking woman of Scandinavian decent.  Yes a very attractive blond.

They were much younger than my parents.  I grew up and moved away.  One day at a visit I saw Jill.  At the age of 50 her skin looked like leather.

Do you see the similarities in this photo?
