I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I had a great time spending the holiday with my family and friends. I also loved being off from work. The Christmas holiday is always a bittersweet time for me, however, because it's the day that Dean Martin passed away. This was the 13th anniversary of his death. More tragedy hit on this year's holiday because Eartha Kitt passed away at the age of 81 after a long battle with colon cancer. I was devastated to hear the news. I've always been a big fan of Eartha. I definitely had to mention it here on my blog. I'm posting some pictures of her from her role as Catwoman on the campy Batman series of the 60's. I've also included a tribute video featuring one of her songs This Is My Life. I hope you like the pictures and the video. I raise a toast in honor of the amazing Eartha Kitt. May she rest in peace.
