A big Thank You everyone who submitted a post. These are wonderful love letters to one of our favorite small screen ladies.When I sent out links to these posts via Twitter, I added the hashtag #WeLoveValerie. First of all, it's kind of amazing that I am figuring out how to use Twitter, but aside from that, I can not think of three other words that mean more to me right now. It's true, we love you sooooo much Valerie! Thank you for everything!

Hello - I just added a Rhoda-in-her-wedding-dress photo to my petition. Check it out and while you're there, please sign my Rhoda NYC Statue petition. This is to get TV Land to do a Rhoda/Valerie Harper statue, maybe near a subway station entrance. Check it out at:
