RIP Debbie Reynolds And Carrie Fisher

From whence it came.

The indescribable attachment between mother and daughter. One followed the other.

‘I want to be with Carrie’: Last words of Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds, 84, who died of a suspected stroke, just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher died of a heart attack.  Daily Mail.

“I miss her so much, I want to be with Carrie.”  TMZ.

“This is how I want to remember Debbie Reynolds. Holding her… The story goes that Gene Kelly (on the right) was a cruel tyrant on the set of “Singin’ in the Rain” and demanded the cast perform and record until 3:00 in the morning. Debbie Reynolds could tap dance but not as well as he or Donald O’Connor, and Kelly unleashed Hell on her until she broke down and started crying. Then he stormed off the set. Fred Astaire himself, possibly the greatest dancer ever, happened to walk onto the set, found Reynolds crying under a piano, and when she told him why, he showed her some moves. When Kelly returned and they began recording “Good Mornin’,” he frowned as Reynolds began dancing much better and asked, “Did you just watch a bunch of Fred Astaire movies?” When they wrapped this scene, Reynolds had to be carried back to her trailer, and when she took her extremely uncomfortable shoes off found that she had broken multiple capillaries in her dark red, swollen feet.”

Bruno The Town Dog From Longville, Minnesota

The dog who does his town rounds everyday, and is well known and loved by all of its residents.

“This Old Dog Walks 4 Miles To Town Daily For 12 Years Just To Sa…
Bruno was adopted by Larry when a passer-by found the little pup on a driveway.”

Bruno, the wandering dog, has been walking 4 miles almost daily for the past 12 years to Longville, Minnesota, just to say ‘hi’ to the town’s people.
Bruno started travelling from his earliest days. More than a decade ago a man came into Larry LaVallee’s driveway holding a small pup. The passer-by thought the dog belonged to those who lived there and figured it could get lost. However, the little guy was a stray and had nothing to do with Larry or any of his neighbours. But as soon as LaVallee looked at the dog, he decided to keep it.

Going on journeys was all Bruno ever wanted. Larry even tried to chain him, but the dog nearly hanged himself, so the owner had to make peace with his pet’s adventures. The master even got used to the town’s newcomers calling and claiming they’d found his dog. He also got used to the confusion at the other end of the line when he’d tell the good samaritans to let go of his dog since Bruno is perfectly capable of walking back by himself.

During the years Longville’s residents have grown accustomed to seeing Bruno walking around. He usually visits the city hall, the library, the ice cream shop, several offices and grocery stores, where workers greet him with meat scraps. Actually, people love Bruno so much, they named him the town’s dog and ambassador and even gave him a carved wooden statue!
