Happy Birthday, Betty!!!



This is my friend Betty.  She turns 90 years old today.  I admire her greatly.  If I make it 90, I hope I'm as sharp as she is.

She has lived in Cooper Landing for 58 years.  For 29 of those years, she was the postmaster.

I'm so excited about turning 70 later this month, I almost can't stand it.  In fact, I've been fudging all year, telling strangers I'm already there.

So, I can imagine how Betty feels about all this.

Betty is family.  Somehow.  Either she or her late husband is related to my late husband.  She thinks it's on her husband's side.  The reason we have trouble figuring this out is that my husband didn't have a family tree.  He had a family forest.  It was so complicated that I often lost the whole thing.

Anyway,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR BETTY,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU.

Love, Gully
