They don't make 'em like they used to...

"Oh, my, word..."

On the way to work yesterday, I heard the devastating news that the great  Shirley Temple had passed. 

I have such fond memories of watching Shirley Temple movies with my mom and sisters growing up. My younger sister would cry to watch more "Shirley Pimple". Why, my mother and I just went to a historic theater last weekend to watch a showing of "The Little Princess".

As I watched the film in the beautiful theater, I kept thinking to myself, that they don't make movies like they used to...

And that thought led to another thought... 

They don't make child stars like they used to either. 

Shirley temple didn't have to dress indecently to gain attention.

She didn't have to twerk to warrant applause. 

Shirley Temple is known for her talent and beauty and philanthropy. 

Stars now have to be different and cutting edge and shocking...

When did things change? 

Maybe its some unrealistic notion I have for simpler times... 

But there will never be another Shirley Temple. 

So thank you Shirley, for sharing your talents and grace with the world. You were truly one of a kind, and you left your mark on many whose childhoods consisted of your films. Thanks for the memories. 

In loving memory of Shirley Temple Black
April 23, 1928-February 10, 2014

  1. "Animal crackers in my soup; monkeys and rabbits loop the loop, Gosh, oh gee, but I have fun, swallowin' animals one by one." Thanks for bringing back some great childhood memories of watching Curly Top! She was a beautiful little actress. I think her legacy is more powerful than our friend who twerks... The influence of these celebrities is what gets to me. They literally can change the world with their influence, but instead they allow the world to influence and change them...


Thank you so much for your comment! Please share this blog on your Facebook or Twitter.

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
