La Morte

We saw the late Debbie Reynolds perform at The Palais in St Kilda many decades ago. She was a brilliant performer and I think seeing her for me was one of my very early adult experiences at seeing someone on stage. These days, 84 is a youngish age to die, no better than average. What can you do but deal with it with some black humour I came across on FB.

  1. Black humour has saved me more often than I care to admit.
    At the moment I am grateful not to be an actor, a musician, or in any way a celebrity... There appears to be a cull going on.

    1. EC, best black humour ever, a cull.

  2. I find it very sad that a mother and daughter should die within 24 hours of each other. Debbie Reynolds was at Carrie Fisher's bedside just the day before.

    1. River, sad and quite remarkable.

  3. Sad about Debbie (even more so than Carrie, as I've seen her in a lot more movies), but that thing with Richards IS funny.

    1. Kirk, most young people would have barely heard of Debbie, but she was very much part of people's lives at the height of her career.
