Annette Funicello - RIP

The object of so many fantasies. We miss you already.

Oh man, too bad. I met her once at an airport and we had about an hour to sit and talk while waiting for a plane. She was partially disabled at the time and I had a broken leg. She told me hillarious stories about her life in Hollywood and away from it and was more than willing to hear about my rather mundane life and interests. Looking back, she had an incredible graciousness that made me feel like she really was the super hot girl next door who would stop and talk to a regular guy like me.

My favorite picture of Annette. She was great in all of her roles and she got even more attractive as she grew up and matured. Another piece of my childhood and teenage obsessions gone.........

When I worked at Shelby American we had a college intern that was Annette's great niece. I notice a very slight resemblence.

The tie in is that Britney was also a mouseketeer in the later version of The Mickey Mouse Club from 1993-1996 ...
