A Sentiment

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.

I so enjoy this beautiful lady. Recently read a bio quip on her & found it both intriguing & interesting all the data we didn't know.

She & Lucille Ball ...favorite legends.

Have a lovely day ~

I never watched the Birthday Bash but I love Bette White too. I remember here and her husband doing standup comedy routines. Such a funny lady. The Golden Girls was just so much fun to watch.

I missed this show but I really wish I had watched it...I am such a fan of Betty White, I loved her in The Golden Girls!

Thank you for stopping by my blog! It was so sweet of you. And it was very sweet of your blogger friend to make you a book of your poems! I am looking forward to receiving my books any day now! Take care!

Mary Tyler Moore's looks and actions stunned me--because I just remember her as perky. Loved the show also.

I also love Betty White and sadly she is the lone survivor from Golden Girls. I have the dvd seasons from their show. I have always enjoyed watching them and I still do.
Betty is a fantastic lady who enjoys life and I hope she will make it to her 100th birthday and more~~~

it seems we all are in agreement about this lady. She can look so innocent, with those big blue eyes, and yet come forth with the naughtiest comment.She just keeps on working...maybe that's the secret to long life...don't ever stop.

I especially admire all the work she's done for dogs! She's a big advocate of shelter dogs. Wonderful gal!

She really has aged well. She looks wonderful.

I remember her from the Golden Girls too. I loved her. My 76 year old aunt was living with us and she warned up that she "hated" TV and would not watch any of it.

We called her in to watch the show and she reluctantly came in and sat on the ottoman...determined that she would not like it.

She laughed so hard she fell off the ottoman.

From then on, every Monday evening, she'd come in and ask, "Are we going to watch Golden Girls tonight?"

Of course, we always did. She (and we) loved it.
