Monday Mourning.



I. Am. Devastated.

If you are knew to the Stretch Marks blog then you may not know that I own every DVD of The Golden Girls. I've seen every episode 12 times. And I know every word to every scene of every episode.

Go ahead - laugh. Mock. I care not. Your words cannot hurt me. For on this Monday morning I am hurting along with the rest of ....uhhh... Broadway, senior citizens over the age of 72 and a vast majority of the homosexual community.

So sure, you're TiVo may be filled to the brim with hip current shows like 90210, Gossip Girl or America's Next Top Model - but mine will forever be full of Dorothy. She will be immortalized through my TiVo season pass, just the way God intended.

Enjoy her with me for a moment, won't you? Because no one....NO ONE...can deliver a line like Dorothy.

Someone pass me a Kleenex.

I love that show! It wouldn't have been the same without Dorothy and Sophia.

While I don't know every word to the GG episodes like someone (Ahem...), I do love the show! I used to watch it with my Mamaw who passed on last August, and everytime I catch the show on, it brings me comfort...so, this makes me sad :-( We'll miss you, Dorothy :-)

The banter between Dorothy and Rose was always my favorite.

OH. MY. WORD. I think I need that button to put on my sidebar!

Have I ever told you that should Boy and I never get married, I plan on buying 4 cats and naming them Dorothy, Rose, Sophia & Blanche? Sometimes it sounds like a better plan than marrying him!

Can you believe that my husband didn't even know who Bea was!?! Shocking, and nearly unforgiveable!

Dorothy has joined Sophia up in Golden Girl heaven--bet they're yucking it up big-time!

I watched that show all the time(Not quite as much as you). She will be missed by many.

I have always liked her, too, perhaps not as much as you though. Watching her reminds me of my mom (who passed away in 2004) because she loved watching her, too.

Side note: You are one funny lady! I like your writing style.

Blessings!
