A versatile comic actress. We love Betty White! I rarely hear the word "versatile" used to describe her talents, but it does apply. When I was a boy, I watched daytime TV during summer vacations and saw her as a celebrity guest teammate on game shows. Then she showed up as the superficially cheerful, catty and man-hungry TV cook Sue Ann Nivens on THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW.
She loves animals as much as we love her. We wish a most marvelous and very happy 95th birthday to the beloved Betty White.
I've got a question for you younger gay guys who adore and still pledge devotion to THE GOLDEN GIRLS thanks to TV reruns and trivia books about the show. We watched --- and still watch -- those dear friends and fabulous female characters. They were of retirement age.
I ask because I hear and see the love from male gay community members for THE GOLDEN GIRLS...then I hear remarks like "Ohmygod, he's over 50" or "Some old guy tried to talk me up at the bar." None of us is getting any younger.
Would you give 3 or 4 sweet gay senior males living together that same time, attention and affection you give THE GOLDEN GIRLS? Would they thank you for being a friend? I'm curious. I'm interested in how the gay males treat aging within their own community.
