    Annette Funicello, R.I.P.

    I just saw that Annette Funicello has died at age 70 from complications from MS. R.I.P.

    When I heard this news all I could think was "... M-O-U-S-E." Well before my time (the Mickey Mouse Club or her beach movies), but I know of her and knew what she did. It makes me want to Google to see how many other Mickey Mouse Clubhouse members from her era have also passed away.

    RIP, Annette Funicello.

    I think she was the last of the original mouseketeers.

    She had a wholesome look that Disney would like but she was a timeless beauty as well.

    Finally her reign of terror is over.

    RIP Annette.

    I did a quick check and it looks like only 2 (now) of the original mouseketeers have died.

    I never realized she had spent the last several years in an MS coma. Wow!

    I remember her well growing up in the MMC, and then those silly beach movies.

    But I think one of her greatest legacies, that I think she worked the hardest on, and her kids attest to that, was being a good Mom.

    My mistake. I don't know what I was thinking of. I confused her with someone else, just don't know who.

    When choosy moms starting choosing Nutella instead of Jif, it was all downhill from there.
    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.
