Shirley Temple 1928-2014

I'm sorry to hear this morning that Shirley Temple Black has passed away. She was 85 years old. I always knew who Shirley Temple was, but I never saw one of her movies--one of her real child star vehicles, I mean--until about five years ago. Honestly, I think I would have hated them as a child. It's that kind of thing like children's comics where I think I actually appreciated the simplicity more as an adult. Granted, I haven't liked every one I've seen, but the ones I did like, I really loved. And they happened to come along in my life at times when I really needed to feel good. So, I thank her for those few hours of happiness.

And she was an impressive adult, too.
