Betty Ford

Today’s headline was the death of former First Lady Betty Ford.  I am sure that the people that read this blog remember her.  She was the First Lady that admitted that she had substance abuse problems, breast cancer, and her many irreverent remarks.  Sometimes to the dismay  of her husband and children.  But we loved her candor and no nonsense approach to problems.

Last winter I read a book about the First Ladies and the one thing I remember about Betty Ford—on one of her last days in the White House, she danced on the table used for cabinet meetings.  It was a great picture!!

One of of kind—Betty Ford, dead at 93.
