Ok I have to admit to a bit twisted sense of humor and knew many would think of Margret Thatcher first since that was the first news headline I caught this morning. .

I have a lot of respect for her too for very different reasons.

I'm saddened to hear she passed. Remember her well for the Mickey Mouse Club way back when.

Little before all time, but still sad to see the stars of yesteryear passing with no one to replace them.

 

P.S. I'll take a 20 year old rerun of the Tonight Show vs the crap today.

Her and the Lennon Sisters!

 

I like Annette so much that when my sister was born in 1959, I wanted her to be named Annette....Mom & Dad did name her Gail Annette to get me to shut up.
