If you leave the DR I won't be able to stalk you anymore.

Food for though.

When I was kid I used to watch Mary Tyler Moore, Rhoda, and I think Lou Grant had a show for awhile.

That was during the M.A.S.H and Happy Days era. Laverne and Shirley. Lenny and Squiggy. Welcome Back Kotter.

70's TV was weird but funny. Good Times 'Dy-no-MITE!"

Your portrayal of Rhoda was phenomenal.

Thank-you, and godspeed.

Mary Tyler Moore put together a very good cast for that show and Rhoda was a great character. RIP Valerie Harper, I am old enough to remember you as a young woman and I didn't have to google it to remember. I only say that because I am testing memory all the time these day. So far so good.

I'm sorry to hear of her death. She was terrific for many years. Talented comedienne. RIP
