RIP Sandra Giles

Just when you thought this year had done its worst…

LOS ANGELES–Hollywood icon Sandra Giles died peacefully on Dec. 25 at home here. She was 84. MSTies will remember her role Jana Ryan in the movie in episode 307- DADDY-O.

Read her story here.

Thanks to Paul, one of my “angels of death,” for the heads up.

    Debbie will be mourned by Sting and God.

    But seriously, I feel so bad for their remaining family.

    Sigh . Another one! Death 2016 is grabbing selfishly anyone it can on its way out. It is laying the groundwork for a horrifying 2017 and next 4 years (if not more). Some of us will wish we’d died peacefully in our sleep or quickly from heart attacks with what the new president has in store.

    Next four years could be most trying since 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis,
    and Donald Trump is no JFK.

    I go to this site to avoid politics. We survived the last one and will also survive the next. Repeat to yourself this is just a president you should really just relax!

    I really liked her in Daddy-O, once her character got past the being a jerk stage.

    She really had kind of a Jayne Mansfield vibe, didn’t she? RIP

    And yes, 2016 sucked pond water. People are lamenting at the end of it the way we were at the close of 1968. (CRAP! I’m OLD!! I’ll probably die next. Was nice knowin’ ya, fellow cowtown puppet show lovers!)

    Wait…………Trump is no JFK ???


    Oh, right. Must have been that beautiful mop of (orange? blonde? brown?) JFK-like hair, that blinded me there for a minute……. :-(

    Sandra Giles had great Swing nights on Sundays.
    She hated Donald Trump. And so does the whole entire world outside of the hillbilly states.
