Default RIP Doris Day.

https://www.foxnews.com/entertainmen...day-dead-at-97

I vaguely remember her movies, but I do remember her when she was once on the Carol Burnett show.
And on Laugh In. She sure could sing.

I remember her well. She was an extremely popular entertainer but like a lot of them it seems her personal life was a mess.

She was a tad bit before my time, but so were a lot of the greats. I barely remember very much of Elvis.

Elvis was truly the "King" in his time. I was never a huge fan but liked some of his stuff. I don't remember the day he died but I remember where I was that morning when the radio announced that he was dead. I was driving a injection line right of way looking for a leak that I had to fix and listening to 102.1 radio out of Odessa, TX. I was in the sandhills under the cap. It's funny how something like that sticks in your mind.



Here is another thread going sideways.

Doris was a rare talent..putting forward the image of "that pretty lady next door" !

I guess the biggest shocker was when her long time co-star in many movies., Rock Hudson..was exposed as having led a limp wristed life.

He died relatively young, but I don't know if it was from AIDS.

Aww it ain't going sideways Elvis used to talk fondly of her. I think everyone liked her. Barbara Eden said that
it was Doris who pulled some stings for her and got her the role of Jennie.

Now that Barbara Eden was something else. She made me go looking for a magic lamp to rub.

Hollywood family text us and said they had no idea how they were fit in all the people who want to attend her
funeral. Eden was always considered a sort of a look alike. She knew Doris very well, they were good
friends.
