I have nothing of the depth of her experiences, but I hope if I'm alive at 84 that I want to go to work for the National Park Service.

That's a strange location for her the bikini string on her bottom piece.  I must ponder this further.

Bettie Page ?

Actually, had she lived longer she'd have been 98.

Betty was my parents' upstairs neighbour in Richmond, for many years. Lovely lady-- my folks thought the world of her. Both my folks have since died, but I will always remember how much they admired her.

I remember when she made an appearance on the Arsenio Hall show back in 2013, during a government shutdown (and before his shoe got shut down again).

The video's on Facebook, along with a bunch of other clips from No Time To Waste:​lm/videos/betty-on-the-arsenio-hall-sh​ow-2013/282242539577659/
