Surely It’s Sad … And Don’t Call Me Shirley

It’s the first of the month and with that headline, I am sure you know where this is going. Yup, it is the November edition

I AM serious ... and stop calling me Shirley.

of the “Celebrity Death Watch”. The end of the year is coming soon. Since this is one of the only things I have been consistent with this year on my blog. Someone is going to win a few dollars I think this year. Anyway, grab your stuffed beaver, cuddle up with your Tauntaun and read on to find out who died last month.

Charlie O’Donnell – 78 – Announcer Wheel of Fortune – Nov. 1

  1. You had me a little freaked out. A friend from our gym was Monica Johnson, but she was a power lifter and personal trainer, not an author, so I think we’re pretty safe.

    BTW, your blog has dandruff.

    • Yeah, that would freak me out a bit. Sorry for that. As for the dandruff, something that WordPress just added. I want to turn it off but have yet to find the option. I am sure it is cleverly concealed in the open somewhere.

  2. What? What dandruff?

    Poor Prince Chunk.
    And the others, of course.

    • I have put the dandruff back so Kapgar’s comment doesn’t look weird. At least I know how to turn it on and off now.
