Betty you are an inspiration! At 80 you have more GUSTO than those half your age. Celebrate every ache and pain, every joyous moment and revel in the friends that you have made on the journey.

I forwarded your blog to friends and relatives who are probably all rolling their, enough already....don't write about me anymore!!! unless of course, I create some dish which is just spectacular!
Or win a prize for something!!
Love you,

Your story put into words what I feel in my heart about our present political debate. I believe that we have been put on this earth to support each other rather than criticize,judge & punish. The more people step forward to fight the tide of anger the better our country will be. Yeah Betty!
