Betty's Back! (Did You Miss Me?)


Hi everybody!

Well, that short blog break turned into a rather long one, didn't it?


Let's catch up, my people.

The first report is from a ROAD TRIP I took with my sisters and niece!


We drove from Kansas to Oklahoma to go to another sister's retirement party.



My sister, Marlene, and I shared a cabin.  Wild times!



Never to be outdone by my older sister, I managed to trip as I stepped off her porch.  

Or was I pushed????  Hummmmm.....

This resulted in a trip to Urgent Care where I learned I had a bad sprain and was given this exciting footwear.


More about the retirement celebration tomorrow.  

While at the party I met one of my fellow bloggers and a loyal follower of Bossy.  

This is John!

You can find his blog at http://www.myfirstcar.me/




It's great to be back in Blogland!

Let the summer begin!

Welcome back, Betty! Sorry you hurt yourself. Which sister do you think pushed you?

Shelly said...

Sounds like a great mystery tale- who pushed Betty? I do hope your recovery is quick and the summer is full of great things~

Batty? were the sisters so obnoxious as to effect a name change?!? ;)
Pushed assuredly ; no one as graceful and confident as Betty would ever trip.

With that kind of luck, I'm surprised you missed the tornado! ;-) So sorry for the major owie. And so glad to have you back! :-)

Alison said...

Yes, I did! I've even been considering pouting.

I hope you have a fun and relaxing summer--do you get a break from work, or are you teaching this summer?

It's good to see your smiling face and your writing once more ... I swear you look younger every time you post a picture these days - younger and very happy! Take care of that sprain, eh?

Ms. A said...

Ouch! That's going to make maneuvering tricky.

Welcome back!

Baby Sister said...

Welcome back!! That's a bummer to get injured while on vacation. Those sisters can be pains sometimes!!

"Or was I pushed?" LOL You are so funny! The last day of school for me was today---the first day of summer break will be spent riding out a tropical storm. Good times. :) Welcome back!

Mamma has spoken said...

Welcome back Betty! Hopefully your cool footwear also got you a pretty blue pass to hang on your rear view mirror ;o)

Pat said...

Welcome back! A little ole sprain can't keep a good woman down! Have a good summer!

Catherine said...

Welcome back Betty! So sorry about your sprain! But I am thinking you can make any footwear look good. ;)

Welcome back Betty. I did miss you.

Ouch! I'm so sorry about the sprain. This is not the way to start summer. So much for wearing those cute sandals.

You trip sounds awesome. Your sisters look like they are your sisters. I love the smiles. What a great group you must have been.

Ami said...

Gonna be hard to find a bag to match that lovely shoe.

Welcome back!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Betty - looks like such a fun time - sorry about the leg though .. but then meeting up with John again - that's lovely ..

Welcome back .. cheers Hilary

Pat Tillett said...

Too bad there isn't any surveillance video available. Did you ask about getting the other shoe so you'd have a matched pair?

Leanne said...
