My 5000th Post And Nothing To Say Except “Thank You…And”

This is my 5000th post and instead of trying to write something witty, I thought I’d throw the whole thing back on you. What were your Top 10 favorite Bette moments of the year and/or the decade?

To refresh your memory let’s go back to 2000 when we had the “Bette” series and the “Bette” CD, Prayer for America (2001), and what about the KMB tours, the Showgirl run, the unexpected song choice of “Midnight In Memphis” on Leno before embarking on said KMB tour.

Some of you might remember this as the Smug Mutha decade in which you met Bette, Hulaween, the Spring Picnic, Bette and the Queen!… other words, you have a myriad of choices. Put them in order or no special order….it’s all about Bette Midler! There’s no wrong or right answer….all of it will help jostle our memories. Just have fun with it.
