A Doris Day Easter


Doris Day speaking
So was Doris Day really this innocent?  Well she certainly did make a career out of being little Miss perfectly nice.  Might I add she also had incredible talent.

Originally Doris wanted to be a dancer and had trained for years but a car accident damaged her legs.  What did she do? Well being a bit of a trooper she decided to take up singing instead.

Doris went on to record over 600 albums and make 39 films some of which she also danced in.

Doris married three times became a Christian and still is an animal rights activist.  Her last hit album was in 2011. Oh and let me hasten to add , by the way, she is now 90 years old and if that’s not inspiring I don’t know what is.
