    Patty was the last of the Andrews Sisters.

    (snip)

    They were patriotic, clean, beautiful, God-fearing and amazingly talented.

    They were from a different time. When Hollywood loved the country and the military, when socialism was scorned, when God was in schools and condoms were at drug stores.

    That's for sure! RIP Patty.

    I remember my mom listening to them in the late 40s. Especially "The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy." I even remember some of the words.

    94 is a good, long life. RIP.


    I was a kid in the 70s, but The Andrews Sisters were even then an act that girls would imitate when playing dress-up at grandma's house.

    That's because Bette Midler had made them famous again.

    I've loved them since I was a kid. They did a cameo in some movie that I liked.
