“The Facts of Life” actress Lisa Whelchel recently posted the above photo to Instagram, captioning it, “Selfie with Charlotte Rae today at lunch. She gave me some good advice. (Just like old times.:).”

Doesn’t it just make your day to think that Mrs. Garrett is dispensing real-life advice to her girls?

This is also not the only “Facts of Life” reunion that we’ll see in coming months. Whelchel and Kim Fields (Tootie) are co-starring in a movie for the Hallmark Channel called “For Better or Worse,” which premieres Saturday, July 19.
