Phyllis Diller - R.I.P.

One of the great comedic artists from my childhood died this morning, at the age of 95. Comedian Phyllis Diller dies at the age of 95 | abc7.com

Evidently they got part of the story about Tony Scott (director of Top Gun, who had brain cancer and jumped off a bridge yesterday--very sad) mixed in with her story, as Gene Hackman's comment is about him.

I just heard about Phyllis Diller on the radio. I have great memories of watching her as a kid, being wide-eyed and open-mouthed, but also impressed, about the things she said Loved her comedy.

From Phyllis:

When I was a kid I was so ugly, my mother had to tie a pork chop around my neck so the dog would play with me.

Ah HA!!!!


I always loved her laugh. I remember her from my childhood as well from different variety and game shows, oh and from the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts.

Her brand of humor is a lots art these days. RIP

Barbara,

Unfortunately, numerous actors, actresses, vocalists, musicians and other well known artists, writers, directors, producers and specialists in numerous fields, of American Nationality had died, in the last 3 years.

Whenever, I open the daily newspaper, I take a look at the Obituaries, in the Spanish Newspaper USA Section. It truly creates an unspoken sadness.

She shall always be remembered.

Kind regards.
Margi.
