I had told my co-worker R.B. that I was amazed at having seen footage of funny lady Phyllis Diller recently and I could not believe how terrific she looks at 90 years of age! She's holding up much much better than poor Zsa Zsa Gabor that's for sure! Well R.B. was kind enough to write Phyllis a letter with my remarks, and this week at work on my desk, there she was, Phyllis in an autographed color photo to me! Can you believe it? Isn't that awesome?! I got the Diller in an authentic autographed color photo! Many thanks to R.B. for this, and kudos to this great lady who was supposed to have died years ago after a serious heart attack, but here she still is, doing cartoon voiceovers and other roles.

I gotta end this post with a mini tribute as well to some other fine women; these ladies of music:

-Here she is, in all her youthful glory, when Madonna pretty much ruled the world with her unique pop style and charming music videos, this is one of her many #1 singles, and still a real fav of mine. ¡Señorita, más fina!

-Because we're worried about Britney, and because my blogging bud M-Filer finally realized how truly awesome her latest CD is, this fanmade clip of Spears in all her erotic glory and my favorite song on her latest album; it betta be her next official single.

-And last but not least, the men wrote and played the fine pop tunes I believe, but it was the ladies that sang the endearing vocals. Nordic they be: Garbo, IKEA, Volvo, and this supergroup I speak of.

You know who else looks great and is still kicking madly is Bea Arthur...not quite 90, but we saw her show two years ago....fantastic! In fact, we're having a Bea Arthur party soon, I hope. You should come! KICK ON, GIRLS....KICK ON!!!

Poor Britney. If she lives as long as Phyllis, I'm afraid she won't look nearly as nice. But life is funny, maybe Britney will land in middle age finally comfortable enough with herself to find grace. That's the thing with being 90, the world isn't as complicated, it's all down to the basics of eating, sleeping, toilet and dressing. The autographed photo is endearing, by the way.

Cool about the Phyllis pic. That'd be sweet to get.
You know, I think Madonna looks better now than she did back then. She looked fat and boyish back then.

and screw Britney. I wish the bitch would go away forever.

You got an autographed picture of Phyllis Diller? That is so freakin' cool. I love the pic you posted of her. She's a wildcat! I wish I could have her over for dinner or something.
Hope you've had a good weekend, WAT!!!

Phyllis is so funny, I just love her. She has a perfect combination of zany, naughty and silly. She used to spend a lot of time in Palm Springs, but she recently had a hip replaced or something like that.

Wat, thanks. I really enjoyed that interview. She does look great. I have always loved Phyllis Diller. She has cracked me up many times and she still has it. Congrats on the picture - what a great surprise.

Phyllis manages to hang in there. She keeps saying she's retiring, but then she manages to show up here and there. I hear she is a dear lady in person as well.
