The deer are everywhere! Be safe drivers and hunters, it’s rutting season. Snapped this doe after she ran in front of the truck, only to stand there and look at me like nah, nah you missed me.

PEOPLE-FAWCETT/Backyard 07003

Sometimes the things we love just fade away and die, but not people we care about.  This plant from our backyard is actually an unusual azalea that sneaks up on you in spring; one day providing just a tease, the next day illuminating joy, and the following day dead foliage. I suppose that’s how some folks perceive movie star icons.

Today, Farrah Fawcett died at 62 years young http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1194730/Charlies-Angels-pin-actress-Farrah-Fawcett-dies-Ryan-ONeal-losing-battle-rectal-cancer.html  and Michael Jackson died who was only 50. Farrah made her battle with cancer very public and showed her courage.

Michael Jackson died apparently of cardiac arrest. Investigators are likely to focus that he suffered a long term addiction to painkillers. Last month it was alleged he was struggling to make  a handful of the rehearsals for his comeback tour in Britain.

I am old enough to have had posters of the both of them on my door.  Who could resist Farrah’s hair?  The New York Times called it ‘a work of art that looked as if it had just come out of the sea and been tossed by the wind into a state of careless perfection’ and was ’emblematic of women in the first stage of liberation — strong, confident and joyous.’ 

Who could change the terrestrial radio channel when the songs of Michael Jackson were being played? Both had talent that can not be denied.

Fawcett’s son, Redmond remains in prison at the age of 24 for heroin possession, while Jackson’s children must be cloaked as always wondering what’s going on in the universe of weird.  The singer leaves three children; Prince Michael Joseph Jackson Jr, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince Michael Jackson II, known as ‘Blanket’. 

Hope these kids don’t grow up hating their names or dad. Ex-wife Debbie Rowe must be standing at the ready.

Whatever Fuc{ up life throws at you; pray that these two are remembered for talent not the trivial defect of being human.
