Comedian Red Buttons Dies in L.A. at 87

I'm heartbroken...June Allyson and Red Buttons gone within days of each other.

He was great in everything he ever did.

He will be missed.

Another one has left us. I always liked Kasey Rogers. She always played such nice characters.

Celebrity deaths seem to come in three's...wonder who is next?

Euphoria has been downgraded

So Anthony called today to tell us what group he will be attached to...he will be with a Air Wing Support Squadron fueling airplanes. That is not so bad, but...his squadron is currently in Iraq on a seven month deployment. They won't be back until September.

I am hoping that means he will not go over there at this time. Irregardless, it means he will be going over there within a year.

I'm scared, sad, upset and happy all at once...and can't stop crying.

Good News!!

PFC Anthony (yes, he got promoted!!!) has been told where he will be stationed after he finishes training....


Twentynine Palms, CA

Woohoo!!! We are very excited because this will leave him very close to his aunts and grandparents!! It also means he will be able to fly home whenever he wants.

He was hoping for Japan, so he is a little disappointed, but the rest of us are ecstatic!!!!

Police: Shooting Sprees Possibly Related:

"A series of shootings that left 13 people wounded over the past two months may be linked to earlier shootings that left four people dead, police said Tuesday."
This story makes me sister, brother-in-law and niece live in the Phx area.

Hope they catch the guy(s) responsible!!

June Allyson, 'Perfect Wife,' Dies at 88

June Allyson, 'Perfect Wife,' Dies at 88

I loved her in My Man Godfrey and in The Glenn Miller Story.

So many legends are passing...

iWon News - 5 Kids Drown During Church Outing in Mo.

Outside the children's north St. Louis home, about a mile from the church, their mother told reporters she was not at the church outing, which six of her eight children attended.

She the children "went on to be with the Lord."

"I still have my joy," Moore, 36, said as she held Allensworth's hand. "I know where my kids are at. I know I'll see them again."

Oh.My.God. She is okay with losing 6 of her 8 children because she still has 2 and the others are "with the Lord"????

I wouldn't even be able to speak...or function. Unbelievable.

Missing you

Yeah, today I am really missing him. I know I did the right thing in telling him to move out, but after 10 years of living together, it really takes a lot out of a person.

I think the hardest part is that he was my best friend. I told him everything. And we always had great conversations. (The sex wasn't so bad either!) I miss just having him around to share things with him. Stupid everyday things.

But then I spent some time reading entries from this blog. Entries that I wrote just about a year ago. Then I realize how angry he made me. And how miserable he made me so much of the time.

He never raised a hand to me, but he abused me in other ways. He was always putting me down. In little ways. It was never blatant. Just enough to drag me down. That will be hard to forget.

Maybe I will never get over it. Maybe I will be alone for the rest of my life like he said. At least he won't be there to rub it in my face.

HeeHee!! This is one of my favorite Monty Pythin skits!
