The Golden Girls



No matter how grim my day can get, an episode or two of this show (but I can hardly stop at two) makes it all better. It's my medicine to fight grumpy, sad, gray, depressing days. I think it's one of the best TV shows of all times. It always brings joy, smiles, the awareness that great friends are just a hug away, that getting older is something we can actually look forward to, comfort, peace.... 

Rue McClanahan (Blanche) died yesterday, June 3. Bea Arthur (Dorothy) passed away in 2009, Estelle Getty (Sophia) in 2008. When I watch the show it's something I find hard to believe..

Thank you for being a friend, ladies.

Sandra-I'm here tonight looking at your blog because I wanted to find out more about your turtles. Oh my! They are beautiful!!!!! Did you know that Ginger Rogers was born in Independence, MIssouri (it's the city right next to Kansas City)? I'm assuming your little turtles are named after that famous dancing duo.

AND...I got to meet Betty White years ago when she was here In Kansas City. She loves her animals but she was not enthused about keeping turtles as pets. She said she had one once but it was always throwing itself down the steps trying to get out. For the most part, I do agree with her but then, there are some turtles that really do like hanging out with people. Some don't. My old turtle Lucy was a wonderful friend and a personality I still miss to this day. The twins???? Well, as you know, I have an entire blog dedicated to complaining about them. :-)

I look forward to reading more of your blog. I'm not sure what took me so long to come on over here. :-)
