Another news shock today.

I would've figured turning 60; but no older than that. She looked very young to me back then, which is surprising - considering our big age difference.

Oh Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine I broke a hip, hey Mickey!

That's terrible, and I'm a terrible person for saying it.

You know you're growing old when your childhood icons start growing old.

I think it's remarkable what an amazing career she still would have even if she hadn't done "Mickey".

Let's see, she was born in 1943 & released Mickey in 1982. So she was... 39 :surprised:

I never would have guessed that.

I'm sorry to say, but I'm not surprised. I remember when the video came out, I thought she looked kind of old for a cheerleader. I don't recall what age I might have considered at the time, but it was definitely 30s, not 20s (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Anyway, happy birthday Toni.

I found the Mickey video on YouTube, and agree she looks a lot older in the video than I remembered.

Of course, I had a crappy low-definition TV, and a younger man's imagination when it first aired. ;)

My dad watches movies and always points out which actors are dead and which are still alive and then gets upset about the dead ones while watching the movie.
