God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

One of the Golden Girls
We watched the Betty White 90th Birthday last night. I go way back with Betty White. I used to watch her husband, Alan Ludden's show...Password all the time, and followed their courtship on TV. Her shows have been my favorites through the years. I think that I especially like this lady, because of her love for animals. She has been an inspiration to so many people... by putting her love and care for them right out there for all to see. I'm sure she's responsible for saving many animals lives. What a perfect beginning for her show...Betty in a limo with her glass of champagne, riding to her 90th birthday bash...talking to Madonna, Lady Gaga, Tom and Julia. As the camera pans the limo...we see that she is talking to dogs, who are dressed in their party hats. This was the beginning of a fun night for all. Seeing many of her co- stars from years past was a little nostalgic for me. It's hard seeing people grow old. We want these people, who have entertained us for years, to stay the way we remember them. Carl Reiner and Mary Tyler Moore are examples of what I just said. They made me shed a tear or two. I've never heard any gossip about her...never heard her utter a harsh word. It seems she lived a joyous life always seeing the good in people. Maybe that's why she has aged so well....her positive nature. This lady brought me many hours of entertainment through the years. Her shows were so funny. I especially loved the Golden Girls. I think they are all gone now, except Betty. As they said last night...I have no doubt we'll be celebrating her 100th birthday together.
