So she really did talk to CBers? From the White House? How interesting!


Check out the fashion! Thanks for your great profile of Betty Ford.


You are always full of interesting info and photos! Thanks!

Sonja-She did supposedly talk to CBers...although I got the idea she mostly did it from the car as they traveled.

Wanderluster-I loved seeing the vintage dresses. Betty was really pretty stylish for the time :)

Soul3-Thanks! This story was a lot of fun to do :)


Found your blog via Minnemom - I really like this profile - and that "First Mama" purse/bag is something that I really, really, really need to recreate. Love the vintage fashion too...

Also, something about her talking on CB makes me want to hug her.

Corrie-Thanks for stopping by!
I loved the fashion show, f'sure. We went over to Grand Rapids to see the museum, and it was an unexpected bonus to see the Betty Ford exhibit.
She seemed pretty accessible, and by extension, it made her husband seem accessible as well. I get the feeling they were both pretty down-to-earth.
