Missed this one and a WTF moment when I saw under recent deaths in Wikipedia the name Penny Marshal. Yup that’s who it is and died several days ago. Can sing the theme song even now. Checked out the other cast members too see who else is no longer with us, LaVerne’s father and the land lady. Such a great show and a memorable character in LaVerne DeFazio. Goodbye funny lady, Penny Marshal RIP 1943-2018.
Condolences to the Bush family at their second loss this year. I believe the reputation of the forty first President of the United States will only be enhanced with the passage of time. RIP President George Bush Sr 1924 – 2018.
And so a hundred years ago, at the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, the war that was to end all wars came to an end. For those of that generation it came to be called the Great War but an even greater more destructive one would come to be in the next generation. World War One would be followed by World War Two and lesser wars would continue to be unto our own times.
We give pause, at this time, and on this day each year
to remember those who served,
those who sacrificed,
and those who paid the final price.
First posted on the Party website now here. A man I would have really liked to have had the opportunity to meet. A statesman is someone you disagree with and oppose what they are saying but will sit there and listen respectfully while they say it. RIP Senator John McCain 1936 – 2018.
Losing another of the true legends. RIP Aretha Franklin 1942 – 2018
