Thursday Three...sad week

Wow...what a sad week it has been. We lost 3 prominent icons of my youth. I grew up in the 70's which is when these people gained their fame. Earlier this week we lost Ed McMahon who I watched as Johnny Carson's sidekick on The Tonight Show. Then this morning, Farrah Fawcett passed away after a nasty battle with cancer. I knew this was iminent from the news I had been hearing. Although she was not my favorite angel, I loved watching Charlie's Angels when I was a kid. My best friend and her sister and I would play Charlie's Angels and act out our own adventures.
Then this evening we heard Michael Jackson was rushed to the hospital after suffering a heart attack and he wasn't breathing nor did he have a pulse when the EMT's arrived at his house. He was finally pronounced dead at 6:15 Eastern time. Who doesn't remember being a kid dancing around to his music? He was a strange person, but an incredibly talented individual. I feel like part of my youth has been ripped away today...a bitter reminder of getting older. I wish I had something incredibly poignant to say, but all I can say is rest in peace.

Apollo's Mommy here: I AM SO SAD TOO! I LOVED MICHAEL JACKSON! If there would have been time, I would have gotten a military outfit and a white sequined(sp) glove to wear today! Meanwhile Apollo and I are at my office, and I'm playing all of my Michael Jackson mp3's on my computer. We're both listening with mournful eyes. I'll take a picture of his sad face to share later.

RIP MICHAEL - HEE EE!

Odd as he had become, the world lost three great talents this week. They all contributed in their own unique way! May they peace in their new home.
