May The Force Be With Her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                    Come  on, girls!  There just could NOT be another obit headline!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                     I did not hear about Carrie Fisher having suffered a heart attack (or cardiac arrest) on the plane, until I arrived at my sister's, last Friday evening.  Like the rest of the world, I was stunned, and a bit angry--Oh, my God, I thought, if Carrie dies, how dare she upstage Charmian Carr?????????  Well, now Carries has gone, and I am faced with having to choose as to who is the Death Of The Year, when time--soon--to sum up 2016.

                                      Carrie will always be Prince Leia Organa.  But she was also a talented writer, satirist, with a keen-eyed sense of humor, and a mental health advocate.  Between being bi polar and part of the drug scene during her heyday--and how about that marriage to Paul Simon, now??????--Carrie played in the fast lane, and suffered its consequences.  Including an enormous weight gain.

                                       In these pursuits, she went the way of her father, Eddie.  Mama Debbie (Reynolds) is still bouncing, and must be pained, having outlived one of her children.

                                         So, may the force be with you, Carrie.  "Star Wars" turns 40 this coming year, and between that, and honoring Carrie, may there be theatrical screenings of the gem that started it all.

                                          Remember when we all wanted to wear that hair style, darlings??????????
Briefly, at least!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
