ONE LESS FRUITCAKE

The world will be minus one fruitcake this Christmas.  Marie Rudisill, aka The Fruitcake Lady on The Tonight Show, died in Florida on Nov. 3, 2006. She was 95 years old.  I never had the pleasure of meeting Miss Marie.  I would have loved to share a conversation with her.  When I saw my first clip of her, the first thing I thought of was 'Hot Dang!  I want to be just like her when I grow up!'  Well, I still do.  Rest in peace Miss Marie.  I miss you already.

ROFL!!

Ya know...the older you get, the more you don't care what people think about ya. I am sure the Fruitcake Lady doesn't give a crap about what others think and, therefore,  she tells it like it is.

We need more of here around!
