Oh yes, sincerely

Cause I love you so dearly

You are so perfect!

Jesus has to carry the cross

Jimmy Dean?

Jimmy Dean, is that you?

Who is that?

The sun is shining

in my eyes and...

It's me, Stella May!

And Edna Louise!


Sissy, come on out here!

It's Stella May and Edna Louise!

Edna, how long!

Oh, how are you!

Come on in here, and let me

take a good look at you!

Sit down here,

I'll get you an orange crush.

Our old home,

old, old...

Juanita, God damn,

you ain't change a bit in 20 years.

Stella May, you old slut!

I wanted to change my dress,

but Stella arrived early from Dallas...

Edna, Edna...

Edna Louise, my God,

look at you!

Edna, you got something

in the oven girl?

Beg your pardon?

Oh, yes, my seventh.

-7 kids.

Can you imagine

anything more horrible?

Pay her no mind,

Edna Louise.

It's so so wonderful to see you!

-You too!

Hey, hey, look what I found

in my attic.


-Ain't it a hoot!

-Oh my God!

Our old club jacket!

Can you believe it,

we actually use to wear this?

I was looking for mine,

and I couldn't find it any place.

I don't know where mine is.

Look at you,

I can't believe you.

I do not believe you

he had 7 children!

I did.

Lack of rain just about dried us out.

Good lord!


-Look at this.


-God damn it, you look just as fabulous!

-Thank you.

Those boobs of yours...

I'll kill for them boobs.

Wouldn't you, Edna?

-Ones I have...

Hey, what about me?

Well, you like a million bucks.

-Million and a half.

My Merl just brought in another one.

That man can smell that oil...

Look everybody,

a red gumball!

That's my favorite color.

My fortune in the newspaper said

today was my lucky day.

And it is.

Your lucky day will come

when you get them tubes tied.
