SEATTLE — A former model from a popular 1960s album cover proves it’s never too late for love.

Dolores Erickson was the naked, busty woman covered in whipped cream on the cover of the Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass album “Whipped Cream and Other Delights.”

Erickson, who has lived in Longview, Wash., for about 40 years, made an appearance at the Swedish Club in Seattle Friday night to greet fans and sign album covers.

Erickson is 78 now — and said she is looking for love and companionship again after her husband’s death.

The former model was born in Seattle and started modeling when she was 15.
