great to know how many pairs of shoes Sheila Walsh has or
what kind of pajamas Vestal wears. But what I really want
to know is, who does Bill Gaither's hair? Sue didnt
tell half the dirt she has on most of us. Will the next book
include arrest records and incriminating photos? My mama doesnt
give her fajita recipe to just anyone! A Party Begins in the
Heart is worth the price for that alone. Sue shares lots of
gossip that you can't get just anywhere. Mark
