Jeanne Battey Thomson
Betty Hale Hale adopted her sixth golden retriever, which, besides being a wonderful companion, affords her some protection where she lives in the country. Last August Betty took the train from Chicago to Sacramento, CA, to visit her daughter. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, and since my granddaughter and great-granddaughter live in southern California, maybe I will go again in March or April.”
In California Charlotte Maxson Moore enjoys the beauty of the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, where she has been a docent for two decades.
Harriet Rashkin Taylor spent Thanksgiving with her daughter, son-in-law, and their six dogs. The clan flew to Florida after Christmas and are staying there through April. Harriet feels fortunate to be doing so well at age 90; she gives credit to aerobics classes and long walks at the YMCA.
Betty Stilz Weiss is making great plans to celebrate her 90th in July, when nine members of her family will travel to Scotland together. Her twin daughters spent their junior year abroad at the University of St. Andrews and greatly enjoyed it. Betty’s love of travel has resulted in a
multitude of world trips, for which she feels very fortunate.
I had a great three-week trip to North Carolina for Christmas with my daughter. I visited friends in Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, and Long Island along the way. For some reason I still love to drive. My mother used to say I didn’t have my name (“batty”) for nothing.
