I saw an article on his death that had an addition I hadn't heard before - he was the first man to break the sound barrier in a plane, and live.


Yeah, Lothar Sieber was likely the first one to actually break the sound barrier but it wasn't in a plane and ended very badly for him.

Dawn Wells (aka Mary Ann on Gilligan's Island), dies at age 82, due to COVID-19. Sad

https://deadline.com/2020/12/dawn-wells-dead-gilligans-island-covid-19-complications-1234662935/

This leaves Tina Louise (aka "Ginger") the only remaining cast member from that show still alive today. How ironic that the one performer who hated doing the show and refused to take part in most of the cast reunions, is the last one remaining.

The question, "Ginger or Mary Ann?" was as divisive then as Trump or sane is now. I miss those simpler times.

The answer was easy for me. It was always Mary Ann. She was such a kind soul, always reaching out to her fans, especially on Facebook. Another part of the past, now gone to the uncharted Island in the sky. I will miss her.

Thank goodness 2020 is coming to a close. With it, we watch and wait once more in 2021 to those who may leave our world and our memories.
