No, That's Gotta Be A Mistake

We and our fathers drooled over some of the beauties that we haven’t seen lately. But we sure do remember them. Not only that, but we keep their memories as they were. Let’s bring you up to date.

94: Deborah Kerr. (Yeah, that’s 94 years old.)
88: Lena Horne. At 88, she’s still a looker.
84: Jane Russell
83: Kay Starr
82: Esther Williams
81: Doris Day
78: Gina Lollobrigida and Patti Page
77: Shirley Temple
74: Mamie Van Doren
73: Debbie Reynolds and Liz Taylor
71: Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren
70: Julie Andrews

Ms.’ Bardot and Loren are 71? I have photos of my grandmother at 71, but she did not have the (a) basic beauty or (b) whatever surgery has been necessary. Did she, we might be looking at her picture on Cosmo. Or the centerfold of the AARP magazine.

But Shirley Temple at 77 … that’s a mind-blower. She wasn’t supposed to grow up.

Funny how they got older and I didn't. How'd that happen?

It's Julie Andrews day on TV. I caught the end of Mary Poppins and now it's Mrs. G's favorite The Sound of Music.
