Bye Bye Beautiful Century Girl

Just read that Doris Eaton Travis, the last living Ziegfeld Follies girl just passed at the age of 106!  Bye bye, beautiful Century Girl. We should all be so lucky to live such long, remarkable lives!

It's a shame but it can't be too sad really. 106 is a tremendous amount of time spent on this planet. What a legacy left behind!

That's true, Charlotte. She was really active and spry until the end, which is really lucky!!

IF I can dance as deftly as Doris if/when I'm 101, that will be SOMETHING
