There Are Many Greats Still With Us

Michael said...

Scary to make that list: "Wow, you're still alive?"

Artman2112 said...

Clint Eastwood?

KC said...

I know what you mean Michael. Actually, sometimes I wonder if the whole thing is in good taste. It shrinks every year! But I also like the idea of appreciating and learning about these people while they are still here. Maybe a few extra fan letters will come out of it.

Good one Artman! How could I have missed Eastwood? I always celebrate his birthday here.

i reckon so ;)

Dawn said...

Wow!! That.. is so Awesome, that we still have some great classic movie actors/actress still with us.

Tom said...

Did you know that Tony Martin is still living? He just turned 99. Though primarily known as a singer he acted in quite a few movies, too.

KC said...

Tony Martin is a good one Tom. I just realized I need to add Jerry Mathers as well!
