La Betine

When my kids were little we had some friends we hung out with all the time. His pet name for me was La Betine. I always loved it, my ex thought it was funny and my sister Paula never forgot it. So I thought I would resurrect her. Here at Christmas time, with all my problems, I like seeing part of the past. It makes me feel less lonely.

I wish I was in this town, at this time in history. I would be long gone but I would have been happy just to live in a place like this.


So now I feel that with JS gone, no one will see this but it makes me feel better.

By the way, I like this place much better than LiveJournal. It's much easier for me to figure out. I still feel lost but I least I know how to do some things.

Yes, I love that painting, too. Is it a Thomas Kincaid? Very nostalgic setting. Hope you and Paul can enjoy the holidays and be thankful for what we all DO have. Merry Christmas. :)

Remember your pretty journal where you used that picture?

That is a lovely picture and the town looks so inviting.

I saw your labs on your sidebar - they are darling! I had three, one yellow, one black and one chocolate. I've lost my black & yellow but still have my Coco. They are just wonderful dogs!

Happy holidays to you & yours, thank you for stopping by & taking the time to comment.

Hey sweetie! I hope that this works. May I join you in your picture town?

I am still trying to get the hang of this place too. Hopefully I will be able to add everyone who wants to be added and that I want to add. Who knows. Lol. I just want my familiar JS back. *sigh*

Love ya sweetie! I hope you and Paul have a wonderful Christmas!! Is Lisa still at your place?

This is an awesome layout!
I'm just getting used to things here.
I love this picture and I have one like it, but with a red bow on top!
My wish for you is for you and Paul to have a blessed and Happy New Year, with no bad stuff happening.
Love and hugs,

I love what you have done here "La Betine." Very nice indeed.

Aww, thanks everyone. I didn't realize I had so many comments. I'm about ready to start keeping up with my much going on around here and I'm in mourning for JS right now. But, you can't cry over spilt milk so onward and upward. :)

Hi Betty
Glad to see you posting here.
So sad about the demise of JS and the loss of my dorrie created layouts.
A new year and a new start. It will take me a while to get use to bloger/blogspot.

I remember seeing that picture on your blog. I loved it.
