  1. She was defintely the best of the golden girls. It’s sarcasm like her’s that made me talk back to my folks as a child.Mega props on the lost eight pounds. And what is a “Fat Flush”? Is it a diet?


  2. I need that prescription. Fat Flush sounds easy. I’ve been uncomforable this summer and need some tips!Sorry I’ve been away…haven’t read blogs in several weeks. You sound good, Beth.


  3. I THINK the words are…“And if you gave a party And invited everyone you knowYou would see that the best would be from me…and the card on it would say..Thank you for being a friend.”Man, you’re going to make me look that up now. Foot!I need to go to bed!(grumbling as she goes)
