Monday Mischief: Even More in Awe of Betty White Now

Okay - I'm going to start right out by saying the mischief is all on me today. I am too beat to give you a full report on the Morris Animal Foundation Gala of Hope today! But... I'll give you some teasers and answer the Big Question.
Terrible photo - but that lady in red is Betty!

Nope, we did NOT get to meet Betty. (She wasn't quite as far as this pic makes her look. Should have lugged my big ol' camera in there!)

The folks who paid extra for VIP tix got to meet her at a pre-party thing, and have pix taken with her. (So jealous!) Since we got free tix, we were Not Very Important. So, this means I also didn't get to foist a copy of my book upon Betty.

But I'll post a full report and all my pix on Wednesday. Yep, fair warning - I will be wordy on Wednesday!

Here's why I'm so beat:
1. Big family party during the day Saturday
Mmmm. Party food and drink!
2. Dashed out of there early for the 2 hour drive to LA

3. Then fun fun fun at the gala!
Yah! More party food!

4. Slept like poop in our hotel room, even though it was very nice and had a lovely view:

5. Two hour drive back home this morning

6. Took Rita for a walk & then had to take her to training class.

I missed this funny girl while I was gone! (And the hubs too!!)
"Where ya been, Momma?"
So, we didn't meet Betty, but we had a really fun time, and we got to hear her speak (amazing!) and we met the most interesting man at our table and we met another sorta-celebrity and we bought stuff at the auction and all details will be revealed on Wednesday!

In Other Wee News...
Another review of Rescue Me, Maybe will be up on Monday on the Book Mama Blog. Thanks Book Mama for the review!

Thanks to Snoopy’s Dog Blog, Alfie’s Blog, and My Brown Newfies for hosting Monday Mischief!


  1. Sorry you did not get to meet Betty but glad you had a great time. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Too bad you didn't get to meet Betty but sounds like an action-packed weekend otherwise.

  3. Sorry you didn't get to meet Betty! Can hardly wait until Wednesday :-)

  4. Sounds like a busy but fun weekend!

  5. I'm glad you had a good time.

  6. I cannot wait to hear all about it! I bet it was a fantastic time despite not meeting Betty White!
    *high paws*

  7. Sorry you didn't get to meet Betty, but it looks like you had some fun:)

  8. The sis/"date" here......The gala was great fun even tho we didn't meet Betty. I wasn't a huge fan like Jackie, but I am now a convert. Betty was celebrated big time, spoke eloquently and looked fantastic! She is amazing. We should be so lucky to be that sharp, articulate, together, and gorgeous at 91!!

  9. So glad you had fun. Damn...no book for Betty though. Can't wait to hear more about it.

  10. What a whirlwind of a weekend! Looks like the family party food was better than the Gala's. ;) Can't wait to read more on Wednesday!

  11. Of course you could have used your creative writing skills to make up a whole episode about meeting Betty and how she had been wanting to meet you. Good for you and integrity and honest reporting. We would not have questioned you.

  12. It would be pretty cool to hear Betty White speak about animals. Hey just bought your new book on my kindle :) now I gotta go read lol!

  13. Excited to hear more! Betty is one amazing lady and at her age!

  14. So glad you had a great time, even if you didn't get to meet Betty. Can't wait to hear more about it. It is no wonder you are exhausted...that was quite a weekend! I never sleep good in hotel rooms, and it is really hard to wind down after something like that, so I'm not surprised you didn't sleep too great. But I'm sure it was worth it!

  15. Glad you got to go and looks like all the party food at each place was delish. Have a nice night.

  16. Too bad you didn't get to give Betty a copy of your book - you should have quietly left it on her seat or something :)

  17. Glad you had fun!

  18. boo, I thought for sure you'd get to meet her! Can't wait to hear all the deets.

  19. Haha - I love the look Rita's giving you, she's not letting you off for leaving her that easily! :)

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  20. Sorry you didn't get to meet Betty. Maybe next time, right? :)

  21. Dawww, sorry you didn't get to meet Betty! Still though, I bet the gala was amazing! So glad you ended up getting to do both (the family party and the gala)!
