|999 times, Mrs. Bueller...|
I didn't know, when I signed up for this gig, that breaking a thousand was in the cards. I very likely would have chucked a patent-leather court shoe at Betty Debbie, stuffed all my uncrushable jersey dresses into handy plastic bags and taken myself and my well-named cat off to well-bred poverty. I think we can all be glad THAT didn't happen.
Also this week (well, every week on Wednesday night) I worked on genealogy with my mother-in-law. We had a bit of a breakthrough last night and the upshot is that there is a VERY good chance the Founding Bettys are Dutch (alas, south Holland is nowhere near Friesland but let's cross our fingers that all the copious documentation bears out!) through our father's mother's side (the very same Betty Helen that sat for so long in nurse garb on the margins of TUJD). Even better, one of the surnames was...(wait in delicious anticipation for it)...Lieveling! Truly the Betty from the Great Beyond was smiling upon me. I can't think of a better payoff for 999 posts!
Thanks for the fun fellow Bettys!
