50 more years and lots more joy

I was comparing the entertainment lives of two people born on the same day and year, June 1, 1926, namely Marilyn Monroe and Andy Griffith. Hollywood kind of chewed Marilyn up and spit her out, while Andy had a long run of movie and tv and plays and concerts while keeping his faith and sanity.

The 50th anniversery of Monroes death is next month, wow did time fly. Of course Andy kept his small town church grown values and managed to keep them in the characters he played. And I just thank the Lord for those shows that he shared with us.

I loved the tender homage paid to Marilyn by the great song by Elton John, Candle in the Wind. She was made an idol and used by too many.
