A Red Haired Russian Gal

I poached this from Meesha. He posted pics of Life Magazine's visit to the USSR back in the 60's.
Now, most of you know I'm a proud Viking. I don't consider myself "white" or "European-American". Its VIKING.
Back in the day, when my ancestors ruled the roost, we traded with the then Russians. Of course we planted our seed along the way, and IMHO that's why you see red headed blue eyed Russians. Of course the tv shows I've seen on Discovery and such pretty much say the same thing. Damn that Martin Luther, if it wasn't for him, we would all be speaking Swedish.

I come from the land of the ice and snow, with the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.

I think this girl is from one of the Baltic republics of the USSR. So this may not be much of a stretch.

It's well known that many of the Viking clans came from the Rus people, who many many years later were called Russians.
