Farah AND Michael

Is anyone else stunned? I knew she had cancer, but him...all I know for sure that he had was plastic surgery. You know how they say that everyone is only 6 people away from knowing everyone else? I have a Farah connection. Remember that poster of her...the one with the red bathing suit with the points? The guy that printed that and made a gazillion dollars, lives around the corner from my house. Well, he did, I think he might be in jail now. He was involved in a lot of shady crap. Anyway, the house is up on a hill and we always called it "the house that Farah built". Michael...no connection to him, except he may know Lebron J@mes and Lebron lives about 10 minutes from me and when S1 was in high school he used to cook breakfast for LBJ at a local national eatery (rhymes with 'awful house')when LBJ would come in with his buds. (yes, he was a good tipper, not over the top but kind) S1 NEVER called us and told us so we could swing by to get a peak. S1 is totally not impressed by anyone "famous" ...except Stephen Colbert...he loves him. He quotes him. He sends me links to his show. He wants to be him. So...today two famous people have died that are a weird combination if you think of them arriving at the pearly gates...wow, that's a conversation I would pay to hear.

I am just too friggin old! You write "LBJ" and are referring to LeBron James. I read "LBJ" and wonder if Lyndon Baines Johnson ate at the local Waffle House.

I am going to put me my teeth in a glass of water now, and take a nap.

Go Cavs!

There's always a trump card.. poor Farrah got trumped by Michael, and poor Ed McMahon got reduced to 3rd banana....

Yes that would be some meet up in Heaven! Sad times.

Isn't it weird that some of the most talented people (I am talking about the photog who made $$$ on the Farah poster) cannot keep their act together. That was an interesting follow up, OHN.
