g'nite mrs slocum!

one of my favorite britcoms is "are you being served?" (thanks PBS for turning me on to this many, many moons ago!) mollie sugden, who plays the brilliantly cheeky mrs. slocum passed away today, and i'm just heartbroken. what a hilariously funny actress. not many have come close to lucille ball in my eyes, but dear mollie did. heaven will be a much better place today because mollie has arrived. rest in peace, dear lady, and thanks for all the laughs! and i am unanimous in that! :)

another little note: saturday night when we went to see my brother in "1776" we were on the elevator going up to the 3rd floor where the auditorium was, and a young man in the back of the elevator said : 2nd floor perfumery, stationary and leather goods, wigs and haberdashery. i turned around and commented on his "AYBS" reference and he was so pleased.........didn't think anyone would "get it!" he didn't know he was in a car full of fans of the show!!!! small world, i guess.......
