This Week...Cloudy, Spritzy, and a Special Birthday.

 

This is January in Houston...not all that cold, cloudy skies and spritzy...not really raining but like someone is walking in front of you spritzing your face with a water bottle.

I go out to the kitchen to feed the dog, but that's about as much cooking as I do. Betty White



This week hasn’t been the best for taking photos because everything looks kind of grey. It hasn’t kept us from walking but you can only do so much with dead trees with no leaves and yellow grass.

I didn't know what Facebook was, and now that I do know what it is, I have to say, it sounds like a huge waste of time. Betty White



Yesterday was the birthday of one of my favorite ladies...Miss Betty White. (I feel like she deserves a “Miss” when you refer to her)

You can always tell about somebody by the way they put their hands on an animal. Betty White



If you’re of a certain age, you will remember her on Mary Tyler Moore as Sue Ann Nivens.  How could you not love her?! And she flipped it around and played a totally opposite character on The Golden Girls.

It's your outlook on life that counts. If you take yourself lightly and don't take yourself too seriously, pretty soon you can find the humor in our everyday lives. And sometimes it can be a lifesaver. Betty White



 I’ve loved her in so many different parts in movies over the years but what I love the most about her is that everpresent smile and her love of animals. 



Happy (belated) Birthday Miss Betty White!!!!

Grant Schneider you know, I'm happy watching most anything that she's in.

Sheila Anderson You can tell by reading her quotes that she is a character on her own...no script writers necessary. 

Sharon Lee you're right! I'd forgotten about that.

How can we not love Betty White.  When I was a young boy I remember watching Jack Benny and Red Skelton with my Granny.  The difference is that Betty White still ives.  And the wonderful part is that my grandchildren will likely continue to enjoy her.

Betty White is a cultural icon and an shing example that old age means nothing if you take care of yourself and keep yourself vital.

She has such a great sense of humor and attitude about life - how can you just not be super impressed with her life and accomplishments!

Great photos!!  When you get around the fringes of Houston, you can see the tall 'slash pines' that I remember well.  Lots of constant activity there.  It's like an amoeba feeding on itself.  I used to work downtown, well, on the loop at 3D/I.  Still there I think.

Betty's idea of FB is right on.  Ha.  Thanks

Miss Betty White is a one of a kind shining star!! Every show she has been in she has been hilarious... I think Sue Ann on Mary Tyler Moore show had to be my favorite!

Plus she loves animals!

thanks for a wonderful post with lovely memories
