oh wow...Wednesday

Three goodbyes this week... two were in their 90's  --that's the oh wow part!  one sadly was only in his 60's.

First is Helen Gurley Brown, a feminist icon of the last 50 years.  She was in her 90's, and had a long and interesting life.  I'm sharig one of my favorite quotes of hers today:




Next is baseball legend Johnny Pesky, another legend who passed away in his 90's.  A contemporary of Ted Williams, Johnny Pesky was a favorite fixture for the Boston Red Sox.  I have chosen to  highlight John Fogerty's song, which I'm sure were Mr Pesky's first words to St Peter at the Pearly Gates! 



Finally, one of the beloved "Sweathogs" had passed away... Ron Palillo, known to many as Arnold Horschack.  Unfortunately, he was only in his 60's when had passed away from a heart attack.   I couldn't make a wordart of his signature "OOH!  OOH! OOH!" look right, so I hope this wordart will do...
