Dear Founding Bettys --
It’s only just past midnight in the Pacific Northwest (8 a.m. here) so may I be the first to wish you a happy BettysDay 2011?
We’re in a country house hotel outside St. Andrew’s, in the Kingdom of Fife (the only bit of Scotland allowed to call itself a kingdom, although I still don’t know why). Alas, I don’t believe this part of Scotland (the East Coast) shows up much in The Canon, but just yesterday, Betty Ross commented on whether his doing all the driving made me feel like a Neels heroine. (Not really, was the answer.) We then had a fun conversation discussing – okay, I just lectured him – all the trips The Great Betty must have taken in her lifetime.
In honor of her 101 birthday, I wish all the Bettys in all the time zones a very happy BettysDay!
Love & a cream tea --
Dear Betty Magdalen,
Scotland? You're killing us.
There are a few books in The Canon wherein the heroine spends some time in Edinburg, and RDD's are always heading up there to lecture...
Happy Bettysday to all!
The Founding Bettys
