RIP Annette Funicello you were my favorite Mouseketeer

Its been widely reported that Annette Funicello, one of the original Mouseketeers passed away today.  Her TV programs and movies about growing up in the ’50s and ’60s helped make the beach party a part of L.A. and American culture.  Never mind all the folks she enticed to make it behind the Orange Curtain for a trip to Disneyland.  Complete WIKI on her HERE.
