that time of year


OY! 
 This is my life right now. Hoping to finish up before the due date.....
For some reason it is all more complicated and problematic this year, than ever before.
Praying that this will not be the case for me!
More Oy!

I shall return when this is finished.

Just Quickly:
We lost another giant of show Business this week.
He could do it all!  And did!
He could Sing and Dance; do Comedy and Drama.....Had more energy than Niagara Falls, and he worked from the time he was just a little kid, until just a few months ago.
He left a body of work like no other.
There are 4 Stars for him on The Walk Of Fame---each for some different area of his enormous talent.
The hardest working man in Show Business,
Mickey Rooney,
 is gone.
But through the Magical Fabulous Film Channel, 
Turner Classic Movies, 
Mickey will live on, forever.
RIP dear Mr. Rooney!
You will be missed.



More To Come........

He had quite a career! So sad to hear of his passing yesterday.

Taxes - ugh. Last year I got one of the dreaded IRS letters referring to something wrong on my tax return from three years before. And I had to pay for an accountant visit to prove nothing was wrong. Incredible. #stillmad :)

Rather you than me with the paper work! Yuck. Good luck with that!

I loved some of Mickey Rooney's work, damn yet another sad loss.

He really was a talented giant in the business wasn't he? And quite the rascal with all those wives.

My favourite role he played was in the madcap comedy, It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world!

It's almost unbelievable that Mickey Rooney started his career in 1927. I doubt very much we'll ever see similar again. He certainly had a long, long career. He was in the process of making a movie when he died. Incredible!

He may have only been 5ft 2 inches tall, but he was a giant!

I just had one of those tax reminder letters here for the UK taxes too. We have until October to get our filings done.

From what I have read of his last years, the saddest part was how his family mistreated him. I know he testified about elder abuse regarding one stepson but had the other also mistreated him and kept him from his wife? I don't know but it sounds like a sad ending for a long and very full life :(

I'm with you on the taxes. This is my first year with the social security and I sure hope I'm doing things right!

I always loved Mickey Rooney and felt sad about his later years -- but he never topped fighting. A great talent.

Mickey Rooney was a legend. I feel so sad about the elder abuse that was perpetrated on him. Your reference to taxes reminded me of this poem:

The Audit

In April I calculate poetry
the way others do their taxes
as though the world was overdue
for a good accounting

Bursting to put into words
what the birds already know
with each emerging daffodil
I mark spring’s growing windfall

Its affluent bloom
and excess of green
are annual assets
we all get to claim

Good luck with your tax!

Mickey Rooney... another sad loss.

we seldom do our taxes until October (with a deferment) and I will get antsy about September. Ugh.

Mickey Rooney gave me a lot of fun memories with his early movies. I hope he died quickly and without pain.

I'm new to taxes and happy that most of mine is taken out at source but expect I shall have to enlist the help of a little man soon.
An important part of my childhood was Mickey and Judy in the lovely Andy Hardy films. What a body of work and he always seemed so amiable.
