RIP Mary Ann



Dawn Wells, the girl-next-door actress and former beauty queen who played the sweet Mary Ann Summers on the iconic CBS sitcom Gilligan's Island, died Tuesday. She was 82.

Wells died in Los Angeles of causes related to COVID-19, her publicist announced.

Other than Tina Louise, Wells was the last surviving member of the regular cast of the Sherwood Schwartz-created show, which featured three women and four men marooned on a desert island after their three-hour boat tour off the coast of Honolulu went inexplicably awry.

Airing amid the real-life tumult of the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights movement and unrest on college campuses, viewers welcomed the corny sitcom as wholesome escapism. It earned solid ratings during its 98-episode run from 1964-67 and attracted new fans through decades of syndication.

Billy you seem to have anger issues.

Did you not make the A-B honor roll ?

Get your Social Studies/ Drivers Ed instructor to show you where the quiz answers are at the end of each chapter.

Don't be so angry and afraid. It's going to be Okay .

2020 getting its last kicks in while it can. We lost Danny Hodge just a few days ago as well. Hodge was probably the single greatest amateur wrestler the US has ever produced and was a legendary pro wrestler in Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri.

It has just been a lousy year and I'll be happy to see it slink out the door in a few hours.
