Not only did we lose ex-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013) today,
but we also lost a Disney legend, Annette Funicello (1942-2013)!
Annette Funicello was one of the original Mouseketeers,
and continued doing work for Disney including acting in films such as “The Shaggy Dog”, “Babes in Toyland”, “The Misadventures of Merlin Jones”, and “The Monkey’s Uncle”.
She also was a singer and became the first female singer to reach a top 10 slot for a rock and roll song with the hit, “Tall Paul”, written by the not yet extremely famous, Sherman Brothers.
Her death saddens me and she’ll be greatly missed!
