With Valentine’s Day moving up toward us, I thought I would share this little story.

A (large) number of years back, my next younger brother developed a crush on a TV personality.  We were very young, but for some reason this struck my grandmother and she wrote a letter.

My brother was quite surprised on day to receive a letter and photo of Miss Betty White .

We are all older now, but I see from her still joyous smile, wit and love for animals, why my brother fell for her.

Her  ninetieth birthday yesterday, and the media hoop-la brought this to mind. So happy birthday, Betty, and thanks for your style, joie-de-vie, and a really good memory.
