    Wow, two in one day. Margaret Thatcher passed as well. Margaret Thatcher Dead: Former UK Prime Minister Dies Of Stroke

    Annette Funicello sure put up a valiant fight.

    Both admirable women in their own rights. I LOVED the Mickey Mouse Club when I was little. I was more a fan of Karen and Cubby (the youngest) but I adored Annette. Margaret Thatcher was one in a million.
    Count your blessings!

    RIP, Annette. Y? Because we like you......
    RIP, Margaret Thatcher. You were a strong PM, for sure.
    RIP, Roger Ebert. May you & Gene continue to do brilliant reviews up above!

    Ok, that's 3! Please no more deaths.

    Exactly what I was thinking on my drive home today! No more please.

    I hope Annette is wearing her bikini and dancing up a storm on a heavenly beach somewhere!

    I recall that Annette developed very early. Disney and his minions didn't like it and did everything they could to minimize her "assets" for as long as they could.

    Anyone remember that Bobby from that era was the main male dancer on The Lawrence Welk Show for years.

    Annette? Disney and his minions??

    Heck, YEAH, they tried to put Annette under wraps. I really do believe that if they thought they could've gotten away with putting her in a nun's habit on the beach, they would've TRIED it!

    Like she had control over when she started bustin' out all over!!

    BOBBY? LAWRENCE WELK????

    SURE, I remember that, now that you've mentioned it! I LOVED watching him and his partners every week! He danced with a brunette, first, then a blonde, IIRC.

    He was SO great on that show!

    I do! Many (MANY) moons ago I took a tap class from him! He was lovely and so much fun!
