Please lose the thought of that horrendous version of the Golden Girls theme song.
This is my tribute to the original Andrew Gold gem (1978).
Some of my favorite photos of some of my favorite ladies!
The absolute best photo ever taken! Crystal…..awesome!
Two fabulous authors. Two inspirational human beings. Two friends, what could be better?
When I need a pick-me-up, I simply look at this photo. Lisa, you are a great and thoughtful friend.
Two of my favorite photos of three of my favorite ladies, two of which I have spent time with in the real world! And that has been my great privilege.
The other, I envy Dee for that relationship (that French Fly looks soooo good.)
Our resident essayist, the fabulous Amanda, does not post many photos. That is the nature of the beast. But this is Amanda to me, in my head. Thank you darling for your wit, wisdom and thoughtfulness.
Our wonderful Canadian correspondents, both of which I have so much love for. One, I have spent time with and respect more than many; one I have a connection with that fills me with tremendous pride.
Ladies, you both honor me with our friendships! 🍁
Nora and Alex are real world friends. They are people I treasure. They are some of the most fascinating and interesting people, the most giving friends I am truly blessed to know. I am honored by my association with you both and greatly look forward to the next time we are together.
Maddy has graced us with her evolution, then life has taken her away from us for a while. But this is her to me, this is that bright light she shines, half way around the world from Kandi’s Land. We appreciate her so very much!
I remember when Teresa told me this was a favorite photo of her. She always is gracious to share her journey to become the wonderful woman she has become.
Tina does not get the chance to get out as often as she would like. When she does, she shares every savory moment with us and my heart bleeds for her when she cannot get out. This is Tina….to me. She may not look like this, but her soul, her essence, is even more beautiful than this.
The beautiful young lady at left is a supposed “newbie”. Yeah…right. Kris, your evolution thrills me to no end. God bless you dear!
Lisa, at right, is one of the most interesting people I have ever known. Thank you my friend for including me in your circle!
Cali also hasn’t provided many photos, always understood. So this is my Cali, my beautician, our resident beauty expert!
I do not have a lot of photos of these ladies, but they mean the world to me. Cass, you are the rock upon which Kandi’s Land was built. Gigi, your recent participation here cements for me that we do good things. Keep finding a way to be glorious. Rach…….what can I say? We’ve been down the road together without ever having the chance to meet, but I always feel connected to you. You are an amazing human being! Pricilla, who communicates principally directly with me, you are a doll!
Faye, every once in a while you grace me with an email and all I can do is beam with pride. Love you darling! This is my Faye, my inspiration, my greatest joy because she claims I helped her get out the door and now, she is making a tremendous difference in our world. The more Fayes we can find, the better this world will be.
Next week, you will be introduced to the amazing Grae Phillips (above) and we will welcome a new voice, Shelley Anne Baker (following, at left). Our little engine that could keeps chugging along, keeps building community, keeps preaching love!
Stana, thank you!
I saved Cristy for last. In what universe does someone like me get to be such great friends with a deeply thoughtful, beautiful, graceful Guatemalan who brings such perspective on everything that is “this”, however we all individually define it?
This just makes me happy…..
If I missed you, I suck and my decaying mind sucks. Forgive me my tremendous flaws. This post was written rewritten, added to over the course of the last month, fined tuned just yesterday for publication.
Many thanked here may never see this, but at least I am getting the chance to let these thoughts escape out into the universe, where it will be ignored like most things I write.
Happy Thanksgiving all! I am grateful for each and every one of you. Our Contributors, those that comment, those that reach out behind the scenes, those that read every day but we never hear from. You are not alone. We are forever bound in a sisterhood that cannot be described, it just exists. No one can understand it but us.
White or dark meat?
We are a true community! Tell a girlfriend…I need the clicks, it’s an ego thing…….
