Betty’s pearls of wisdom:

‘Only boring people are bored.’

‘My mother always said, ‘You’re painting a masterpiece, make sure to hide the brush strokes.’

 ‘As far as I’m concerned, as long as men look at me that way, I’m earning my keep.’

‘Go watch TV.’

Fine China Fabergé wannabe. $20.

Don’t question why she needs to be so free
She’ll tell you it’s the only way to be
She just can’t be chained
To a life where nothings gained
And nothings lost
At such a cost

There’s no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams
And you will lose your mind.

Aint life unkind? 

Keith Richards
The Rolling Stones
